Video Bookseller

Booksellers Peter Harrington have stepped up their promotion by showing their prize offerings on YouTube. One of their video offerings is a first edition of Waugh’s 1928 novel Decline and Fall with a pristine dust wrapper. The book is presented by Ben Houston who concentrates on the illustrations Waugh drew for the cover as well as internal pages. After whetting the appetites of dust wrapper fetishists by fondling the book throughout the 2-minute video, the opportunity is lost to make a sale because the price is not mentioned. It won’t be cheap. A good guess would be that it is the one on offer for £17,500 (stock code 111192).
