Ion Llewellyn (Jack) Idriess
A complete Idriess Collection of First Editions - August 2021
Jim Bradly (of 'Gouger of the Bulletin' fame) has magically conjured up 2 sets of Idriess first editions - mostly in original Dust Wrappers. One set is slightly better than the other and he is open to discussion around price etc. If anyone is interested please just call Jim directly on 02 4959 3118 or leave a message on this site via the Contact Us button above. There will also be a posting on our Forum page once I get further details.
