thanks jp.                 Coincidentally, I shall be seeing Mark in the New Year  -  he's giving a chat at the V. & A. together with Judith Miller, and adising where to shove your surplus shekels in a talk entitled  'Investing For The Future'  -  a sort of 'what's going to be collectible in the coming years, but don't blame me if it goes wrong'.............   unfortunately, don't think I shall live that long to realize my investment.          However, as a V & A member, thought I'd go along and give support - they give a free cup of tea and bun afterwards, and when you're a pensioner in penury these little trifles add up - I always manage to get seconds ;)

Know you'll think me thick, but I have no abilities to handle ebay  -  buy occasionally - but don't have the inclination or knowledge to sell.
As I said earlier mine is mint, signed by Mark and includes the value estimates list.
I've already asked an acquaintance, who I believe is an ebayer, if she might do the sale for me - although not had a reply yet.         
Is it poss. that you can give the interested under bidder my email and then we can do the deal (cheque to be cashed before posting etc.) outside ebay??  -  or is that not an option.

What with the Gov's. heating hand-out, plus what I might make on this..............streuth will I have a Christmas to remember ;D   at least I might if the OH wasn't a Witness. :'(

Mark is supposed to be coming to me , as you know he is hard to tie down to when , he is interested in my collection , I will pass on the info about your book , I know this person was just a tad under 100  as an under bidder , I have been thinking its time I went back to the V&A so may see you there . Good luck with the book .cheers
