Ha, funny. I especially liked the comic book finds. I remember being given a stack of old comics as a 5 year old kid in 1953. My mom burned them, because she thought they would warp my mind.

Bad news, ma, it happened anyway.

I found a first edition (US) of "The Hobbit" in a box of books I'd bought years ago but somehow never went through. It's beat, rebound, a library copy, though. Value dubious.

A friend found a "first, first, first" edition of "The Wizard of Oz" in a bushel basket of St. Nicholas magazines purchased on Maxwell Street in Chicago, back in 1967 or thereabouts. There are a number of variants of this book, Google it if you are interested. The friend later moved to New Orleans and years later lost just about everything he had collected in Hurricane Katrina. I don't know what happened to his copy of "The Wiz." My friend is deceased now, so it's likely to remain a mystery.
