…sold yesterday at Sotheby’s in London for £79,250. This was towards the lower end of the estimate,which was originally  £70,00-100,000. We talked about this sale previously here.

Even so, it was a pretty amazing price for something that was clearly not beloved or valued by its owner…..and for something that was not complete, Volume Two was missing from the set. It was sold by Professor Marylin Butler and her husband.
