Vintage Gallery #12 Looking in Junkshops by John Bedford

spotted in a junk shop - that set the irony alarm off


Published in 1961, cover illustration by Susan Holland.

"The ideal handbook for all who have gone into junk shops and antique shops, hesitated and dithered and then come out - either empty handed or with 'junk'. John Bedford is himself an life-long collector and amateur whose knowledge is wide-ranging in many fields. But his style is always friendly and down-to-earth. If an article is likely to be 'in the Sotheby class', he will tell you so."
