"There is a section in Part 3 headed 'My Uncle's Wisdens'. This concerns an incident a few years ago when a collector, disenchanted with an experience with a dealer, put a spoof lot up for sale on ebay. It was given the appearance of a veritable Aladdin's Cave of a collection, comprising more than 500 volumes with heavy duplication of many of the rarest editions. The accompanying description gave the impression that the lady vendor had no real clue as to the extent of the treasure trove that she had just inherited."
