For sale here is :
The Secret Ray by Herge - The Adventures of Jo, Zette and Jocko. Sundancer 1994 Edition. First and only edition in English, this combines the two part stories The Secret Ray and The 'Manitoba' No Reply. Translated by Leslie Lonsdale-Cooper and Michael Turner, this was printed in small quantities in 1994 and never reprinted. I've seen this described as the "Holy Grail" of Herge books in English and that is hardly an exaggeration as it is extremely rare and very difficult to find. It has taken me over a year to find one to offer for sale and I don't think it likely that I will find another one anytime soon. Condition is superb - I suspect it was bought by a collector and never read - certainly could be sold as new. I have looked extensively on the internet to find a sensible price for this book and can only find 3 copies Worldwide for Sale - two on Amazon US for $2,100 & $2,904, and one on Abe Books for $5,282. Therefore in line with my policy of always trying to offer best value, I am pricing this at £1250. SPECIAL OFFER - REDUCED FROM £1250 TO £995 - FINAL REDUCTION TO £795.
Postage is UK £11.55 Royal Mail Special Delivery, Europe £25 Parcelforce Insured, Rest of World £45 Parcelforce Insured. Note that I will always combine postage - you only ever pay actual Royal Mail cost.
