Happy Find

That moment when you walk into a second hand or charity shop and see a book you've rather wanted for a very long time at a splendidly cheap price. Admittedly this is a battered first edition (and that's not first edition in the romantic, and possibly financially desirable, sense) rather than the swanky new illustrated second edition, but I have plenty of Victorian illustrations around the house, and I'm still very happy with my find and it's low, low, price tag. Share my joy!
This book almost completes my John Sutherland collection (he's so prolific there are bound to be some that have slipped the net) and beautifully compliments my love of Victorian fiction (the more sensational the better).
