Gorey Art for Sale

Edward Gorey
Up for grabs at ebay this week are two pieces of original Edward Gorey art. First, two interior illustrations from The Trolley to Yesterday (1989) on one piece of paper: the hand and sword pointing at a lit candle (page 120) and the mysterious tabergan (page 107). The second piece paper contains the ink drawing of the rebus clue from The Spell of the Sorcerer's Skull (1984), the capital letter "L" covered with leafy vines (page 52). The seller notes both pieces were originally purchased at the Gotham Book Mart in Manhattan. If you've got the money...good luck!
