Agatha loved Greenway House and spent most of her holidays in this beautiful estate in Devon, England. She and her family were great collectors and had an extensive collection of rare silver.

He was the son of Soloman Hougham who was the Mayor of Sandwich. Charles became a noted Silversmith & Goldsmith and many of his works are currently on show at Norwich Castle.

United Kingdom Chicken House 2004 1903434904 / 9781903434901 1st Edition Hardback with Dust jacket New/Unread Dust jacket - New Children's Fiction Fantasy 1st Printing SIGNED - WITH DRAGON DRAWING
We have pleasure in presenting a very exclusive copy of this extremely popular children's book written by Cornelia Funke.

Two of her books, The Thief Lord (2002) and Inkheart (2003) have been given the Hollywood treatment, exactly like "Harry Potter" and were made into highly successful films in the last few years.

"Dragon Rider" was written just after these two books in 2004.

This copy is so sought after because, not only is it signed with her FULL NAME and is also dated extremely near the date of publication, it has a drawing of the Dragon itself and an exclusive promotional bookmark.

Only 2 or 3 copies of this book were doodled with the dragon's head like this and also over time her signature has changed and got shorter to C.Funke, so it makes this very collectable indeed.

A super investment for a Children's Fiction collector or general book collector

UK Chicken House 2004 0439743362 / 9780439743365 US Slipcase Edition Hardcover with slipcase New Fiction/Fantasy 
Cornelia Funke is known as Germany's J.K.Rowling and is indeed a contemporary of the great lady.

Two of her books, The Thief Lord (2002) and Inkheart (2003) were indeed given the same Hollywood treatment as "Harry Potter", with Brendan Fraser in the lead role and many other famous actors in supporting roles.

This book was written in 2004 and is a US Hardback with Slipcase Edition, still factory sealed, as it was when it left the publisher. As a result, both the book and the slipcase are completely untouched and the plastic sealed cover unbroken.

This is fantastic buy for a Cornelia Funke collector or a collector of children's fiction.

The second case for Victorian sleuth Lord Francis Powerscourt.

Early one morning in 1897 a corpse with no head or hands is dragged out of the Thames by London Bridge. There are few clues to his identity and the police call on Lord Francis Powerscourt. Soon his investigation leads Lord Francis to a series of murders at the House of Harrison, a reputable German bank in the City. It seems somebody at the bank is staking out imprudent financial positions that could lead to a scandal of catastrophic proportions for the City. Young Wolfgang Harrison was educated with the Kaiser and shares his beliefs in the destiny and supremacy of the German race. Could he be planning a financial Gotterdammerung that would cripple the British Empire at its finest moment, the celebration of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee?

It is SIGNED by the author on the title page. The book and dust jacket are in FINE - AS NEW condition and is protected by a Mylar cover.

United Kingdom The Chicken House/Barry Cunningham 2008 1905294972 / 9781905294978 1st Edition Softcover New/unread Children's Fiction 1st Printing SIGNED TWICE/BY THE AUTHOR & BARRY CUNNINGHAM
Lilly Melkun is out fishing with her sea-cat when the bloodthirsty Reavers come raiding and steal the Prime Minister's daughter.

Her village blamed, Lilly decides to find the girl. Off she sails in secret with a ransom - an extraordinary talking jewel. But nothing can prepare her for what happens next ...

A very interesting debut novel by Emily Diamond. It has won the Times Children's Fiction competition in the recent past and is published by The Chicken House.

If this name rings a bell, it is probably because of the publisher Barry Cunningham - newly awarded an OBE in the Queens Birthday Honours list in 2010 - for services to the publishing industry which is absolutely true, HOWEVER his main claim to fame is that he is the man credited with discovering J.K.Rowling!!! and as the Chicken House website has so rightly pointed out "I'm sure you'll agree - he's made a bit of a difference to children's reading habits over the years" - enough said.

If this author is good enough for him to publish and personally sign her book then she is certainly good enough for us.

Obviously one to keep a close eye on...

Gillian Cross is one of the UK's top children's authors, and has won every major children's book prize. She is highly acclaimed internationally.

In "The Dark Ground", Robert is alone, in a strange jungle. He has no food, no shelter, no warmth. Unfamiliar creatures are roaming about - and he's not even sure how he got there...

Following the story of Robert's struggle for survival, through to his extraordinary realization of where he is and what has happened to him and then to his perilous journey to find his way home.

This is such an unusual adventure/fantasy story, it is gripping right from the start and you will not want to put it down until you have finished.

Although it gradually dawned on me what had happened to Robert, it was still so surprising and written with such imagination, that I couldn't wait to read book 2 in this trilogy "The Black Room" to find out what happened next.

This is a FINE-AS NEW copy of the book, is signed by the author and features the desirable and highly unusual holographic cover.

TED SMART 1997/1998/1999 ALL First Edition ALL HARDBACK with Dustjackets All excellent/ look unread - please see description Children's Fiction Fantasy ALL First Printing NONE
***FANTASTIC*** - The first three book box set of J.K. Rowling's classic titles.

All three are 1st Edition, 1st Print hardback books with their original dustjackets, all unclipped and housed in a sturdy presentation box with the original artwork of The Philosopher's Stone on one side and The Chamber of Secrets on the other. The box has a few age related scuff marks as expected and also has an interesting point. It has Ted Smart on the spine where the publishers name is, however on the bottom of the box, the web address is for www.bloomsbury.com

We have never seen another box set with ALL FIRST EDITION/ FIRST PRINT editions in it!!!

The three titles are, of course, The Philosopher's Stone - 1997. The Chamber of Secrets - 1998 and The Prisoner of Azkaban - 1999.

The Philosopher's Stone book is in excellent, clean condition and looks unread. It is complete with unclipped dustjacket, also in excellent, clean condition. It is uninscribed and the illustrated boards are like new as well as the spine & binding. The pages are free from any folds or tears. There is a little tanning to the page block which is totally expected owing to the paper-stock used, which was not the best, designed as a read then throwaway book for children.

The Chamber of Secrets is also in excellent, clean condition with the unclipped dustjacket the same. It is uninscribed and the illustrated boards are like new as well as the spine & binding. The pages are free from any folds or tears and again the book looks unread. There is a little tanning to the page block which again, is totally expected

The third book, The Prisoner of Azkaban is also in excellent condition with the unclipped dustjacket the same. It is uninscribed but there are a couple of slight ink marks on the bottom of the page block which are out of sight and two pages with very slight tears on them but no paper is missing. All paper is present, it is just a couple of nips to the pages. Apart from these very minor points the rest of the book is in clean, excellent condition and also looks unread.

Ted Smart (a mail order company) is looked on as the poorer relation to the Bloomsbury published editions, however despite this, prices have been steadily increasing over the last few years. The reason for this is simple, they are still really affordable in comparison to their Bloomsbury counterparts.

The Philosopher's Stone original trade hardback still commands a price in excess of 11,000. The Chamber of Secrets & the Prisoner of Azkaban published by Bloomsbury also have hefty price tags.

This set is therefore a wee gem which offers great investment potential.

There are only 3 very neat school stamps, one on the front end paper in small letters, another on page 143, and again on the inside rear cover - please see photo. They are not obtrusive and could be removed by a professional. There are no other inscriptions or marks at all, the page block is tight and it has no tears, rips or loose pages.

There is some light tanning to the inside pages which is expected and typical of the paper stock used. This is because the paper used was never intended as anything more than a disposable read.

It is a wonderful copy of the first book with ALL the famous, extremely well known errors associated with it.

Completing this item is a burgundy slipcase for you to slip your prize tome into, so it remains safe and sound.
