Sadly nothing grabbed my fancy.
Afterwards I visited Lobos Collectables in Thornbury where I noticed this "Diamonds Are Forever" lobby card. Not sure if it's from 1971 but I thought it was good value for $15. It was a difficult decision but I decided against buying it.
The real reason I visited Thornbury was to visit Howard Bolton Bookseller next suburb along in Northcote. It was my first visit in about a year.
As soon as I opened the front door Howard was behind his counter cheerfully greeting me. And his store looked great.
As usual he had some fine condition Bond paperbacks on his shelves.
I decided to buy two paperbacks. The Pan "You Only Live Twice" is a paperback 1st and the Triad Panther "Colonel Sun" was in great condition. Both books look unread. They will go into my box of paperback doubles.
I noticed as I was leaving there was a box set of Penguin Ian Fleming titles. I didn't take a photo but it was this set (which I already have). I don't see this set available for sale on shelves very often.
Finally I returned to Thornbury to visit Fully Booked.
I was ready to be met Rallou and her husband Tadhg behind the counter however I forgot Full Booked isn't open on Sundays ! I managed to grab these photos anyway:
I will return to Fully Booked some time in the near future, on a day that does not start with the word "Sun".
