Bloomsbury Auctions Lit Goodness

Yours Sincerely, T.S. Eliot

Bloomsbury is auctioning off two rounds of kickass books and letters and such. It will make you want to pull a heist in order to be able to effectively bid on some of these things. Like a signed limited first edition of Uncle Bill. Or first edition Dahl. Or first edition Holmes from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Or letters from T.S. Eliot. That’s happening this Thursday in New York at 2pm. Check out the lots here.

Then there’s the Children’s Book Auction. Featuring scads of first edition Frank Baum. A signature from Lewis Carroll. A first edition Pooh from 1926. Again, one weeps with how poor one is. rel=”nofollow”Check out those lots here. That one is happening Wednesday, June 25th, at 2pm. Also in New York.

Book fiends, take note. And…hey, has anyone seen Doc? He tore out of here with a ninja squadron and then headed for the jump jet. Odd.
