So this is who I was bidding against in that last Harry Clarke auction

I bought a 1931 copy of [abe]Hans Anderson's Fairy Tales[/abe] [ebay=Hans Anderson's Fairy Tales]on ebay[/ebay] the other day for about twenty quid. It's in terrible condition (though I've mostly reassembled it) and some of the black and white illustrations have been crayoned in by a child, BUT, all of the colour plates are present and they're lovely to see. Will I Probably not, though there is an outside chance if I can get a good conditioned copy of the book.

I might scan the pictures in later and post them up here, though you can see a few if you're quick [[http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Exquisite-Fairy-Tale-Art-Nouveau-Swan-Harry-Clarke-1931_W0QQitemZ360002166512QQihZ023QQcategoryZ20144QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem?_trksid=p1638.m118 here, here, and here.

Don't be outbidding me on the next book just so you can carve it up and sell it on.
