*Annuals: This week, we celebrate two British institutions – or to be more specific Scottish, as Oor Wullie and the Broons, from Scotland’s Sunday Post, have been gathered in Annuals since 1940 and 1939 respectively. Originally the creations of stellar cartoonist Dudley D. Watkins, these tales of a bustling nuclear family and an introspective lad of mischief have warmed the hearts of generations, and remain an Annual tradition – published in alternating years – to the present day. From the same pedigree source as our previous ‘Immaculate’ selections, these are from a newsagent’s inventory, never circulated or read, no prices clipped, no gift dedications, ‘This Book Belongs To’ inscriptions or other interior markings, solid spines, tight corners and bright, vibrant colours. A few have minor edge wear from long-term storage, but their overall condition is remarkable for their vintage. We have a selection of the Broons from 1958 to 1974, and Oor Wullie from 1967 and 1969. Pictured: Broons 1958 GD (tape residue on cover) £30 and 1966 VG £30.
