Old Edwardian exercise book sells for £2000 - because of its fantastical drawings.<br />
<br />
An unique and extraordinary hand drawn book of fantastical beasts has sold for£2000 - with specialists claiming the sketches would not look out of place in a Harry Potter novel.<br />
<br />
The Edwardian 'Pawky Pawk’s Book of Beasts' dates back to 1905 and features 32 weird and wonderful creatures all accompanied by a brief satirical description.<br />
<br />
The spooky pictures were drawn by a mystery illustrator named 'Jimmy Smite', who also depicted himself in the beautifully drawn exercise book.
