My first edition of Hide and Seek by Xan Fielding

It may not look like much but today I managed to bag a first edition of the very rare Hide and Seek by Xan Fielding.

I am pleased with myself as I let the last one slip by on an eBay auction during the first election debate in April.

      Ian – similar volumes are on sale on Amazon and Abebooks (dustcovers seem to have disappeared) for £300-£400, so I reckon this is good value. How high would I have gone? Difficult to say but I was determined to have this so it could have been more. 🙂
