127 Dice: £1
Yes, Ted has done it again. A selection of 127 dice for a pittance. Not just any dice, but good-quality dice, including all five platonic solids!!!
There are big dice, small dice, white dice, black dice, red dice, marbled dice, speckled dice, and there is a tetrahedral dice (or die, if you’re pedantic), an octahedral dice, a dodecahedral dice and even an icosahedral one!
Now you may be wondering why Ted would want 127 dice, but since the answer is patently obvious it won’t be given here.
Three Children’s Books: £6
If Ted had realised how tatty these were, and that they had been scribbled in by children, he would have haggled, but they do bring back memories.
Two of the books are by Enid Blyton (Book of Bunnies and Book of Brownies) and the third, by Odhams Press is The Children’s Book of Games, Puzzles and Pastimes… but why don’t they ever put the year of publication in them? How can deluded Ted sell them at the auction house Sotheby’s if the year of publication is unknown?
A Google search indicates that the Odhams book was published c1948, the Bunnies book in 1925, and the Brownies one in 1926.
