Hi Rod,

Amazing result for the Billigs books given the estimate. Sorry you missed out there.

Kellow's signed book went for $90 and the unsigned went for $125

Lowe's Asia went for $200 & Leeward Islands for $300. The latter is just plain ridiculous given the number of copies available on Abebooks for way less than $300. Lazy buyers in my opinion. One copy of Asia is on Abebooks for US$100 and has the dustjacket. Naturally, no buyers premium on Abebooks to pay either.

Given the Asia at Abacus didn't have the dustjacket makes me think what price might be paid for a copy with the DJ?

Thanks Rob,
that equates to $1500 + AUD
My target is to get a collection under $1,000



Bobby,
Ah! yes it was the Leeward Islands a possible World record.

I ended up liking Abacus Interface.
I'll return, even if its to see the Outrageous prices

$875 for a 1d cherry red Kangaroo

I'm only really bidding on a few bits and bobs at Phoenix these days. They have the material and I'm happy to buy or bid.

As for selling my excess material, they're the best in the country as far as I'm concerned. No fuss, plenty of communication/consultation and quick settlement. Who could ask for more?
