I bought this page off Rob on Ebay. He said 'mint condition'. 'Mint' my ass!

*pushes spectacles back up nose* - That is definitely not 'Mint' it's 'Heavily Soiled'.

He should have kept it in an acid-free Mylar bag, placed it in a strongbox and then put that inside a vault situated under 30ft of concrete?

A terrible shame as the artwork is so lovely. If only people could produce work of this quality nowadays.

It's a great page. I never would have sold it to Ian had it not been used as a coaster by the wife, a drawing pad by the kids and lunch for the gerbil.

A joy to see this page again after so many years. My great aunt Simon had a copy, I remember fondly sitting on her knee, looking in wonder at the pages within. I think she died of ink poisoning from licking this very page. Shame, she had some lovely books.

Yes, I remember fondling your Great Aunt Simon as she died. She had a lovely set of books, including pristine copies of HUZZAH!! volumes 1-16, I believe.

Did you mean to say 'fondly'?

Anyhow... HUZZAH!!
