Public Service Announcement

Bidding on a first-edition copy of Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations commences in five days. Fewer than a thousand were printed, and it sold out in six months. Christie’s estimates the book, in two volumes, will bring in $80,000 to $120,000 – which, when you think about it, is a pretty paltry sum for “the first major expression of the theory of free trade.”

And in the event you’re interested in purchasing any of 13 vehicles featured in the 2015 film Mad Max: Fury Road, Lloyd’s will no longer accept offers after 7 p.m. Australian Eastern Standard Time on September 26th. Don’t worry if you can’t be there to pick up your War Rig or Ratrod Chev: “Nitrous, no-nonsense shipping can be arranged for anywhere in what’s left of the World.”
