Signed Michael Bentine Potty Encyclopedia on eBay
Last weekend when Heather and I were away at a dinner party near Reading, we stayed over in Aldermaston then went into High Wycombe on the Sunday. Which is where I found, in a charity bookshop, a signed copy of Michael Bentine's Potty Encyclopedia, from 1985.
I was a Potty Time fan as a kid, but had long grown out of it by the time this book came out, and I bought it purely because of the signature inside and the thought that it might be worth more than the 99p I paid for it. And, as it turns out, it was. And, for the record, it's quite a fun silly read too, full of the sort of gags I rather make my living out of with the Socks.
At time of writing it's going for a little over thirty quid. Stay tuned for gripping updates.
