James tops Greene in Bloomsbury auction.

Mystery offerings were few in Bloomsbury's August 20th bibliophile auction, but here are some pertinent results:
  • Arthur Conan Doyle, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (2nd ed., 1893; along with Strand Magazine version of The Hound of the Baskervilles, 1901–02; and The Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, colonial ed., 1894), £180 (approx. US$297)
  • Graham Greene, Stamboul Train (1st ed., 1932; along with Heart of the Matter, 1st ed., 1948; and The End of the Affair, 1st ed., 1951), £150 (approx. US$248)
Leslie Charteris's Meet the Tiger and Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles went unsold.
