This is an auction for THE CASTAFIORE EMERALD by Herge.

*******************************­­­­********

This is a brand new (unread) hardback. The RRP in New Zealand is $29.99. This is one of a number of Tintin figurines, keyrings and books which I am offering for sale on Trade Me. Some of the other items are shown in the last two photographs. Combine purchases to save on shipping!!!

*******************************­­­­********

"The Castafiore Emerald was Herge's third-to-last completed Tintin story, and the most unconventional. Rather than a globe-trotting adventure, it takes place completely at Marlinspike Hall, where an incapacitated Captain Haddock is being nursed back to health by an unwelcome visitor in the form of Bianca Castafiore, the "Milanese Nightingale" who then suffers a devastating loss ("Mercy, my jewels!"). The locked-room mystery, character interactions, running gags, and crazy Calculus inventions keep it fun and definitely worth reading."

Large format hardback 2011.

62 pages.

There is of course no charge for shipping if you collect this book from my shop in Palmerston North following the auction.

Payment within seven days, please.
