Today's Portobello Road Bargain...

...was a bound volume of The Boy's Own Paper covering October 1893 - September 1894, about 800 large pages with a lot of illustrations, for £3.00

Condition isn't wonderful - there are a lot of loose pages which have been bashed at the edges - but it seems to be complete and there are loads of illustrations, some in colour, including fold-out double plates. Even in poor condition I would have expected it to cost £20 or more, so I'm very pleased. Haven't really found anything very useful for Forgotten Futures etc. yet, but still hopeful, and even if I don't it's a nice volume.
