[SNIP Bill's bargains]
I went in to the Student Shop in the college at which I ply
my humble trade for the first time last week. They have very,
very few second-hand books on sale ... less than a hundred
I'd say ... anyway, one of them was a first UK HB edition
with dustjacket of the Woolrich collection. The Ten Faces of
Cornell Woolrich. Needless to say I bought it without
quibbling over the 80p pencilled inside the cover ...
checking it out on the web I was pleased to find that copies
in similar condition were priced at well over eighty new
Apparently the book was part of a collection sold by 'a
widow', so who knows what other gems I might have snapped up
if I'd gone in the shop before ...
