This was a bit of a coup for someone:

Their ownership was then a mystery until they were discovered inside a railway timetable in a box of second-hand books purchased at a local book sale in the 1970s. The owner, who wished to remain anonymous, sold them for £441,000.
The anonymous second-hand book buyer had found eight etchings by William Blake. These have now been bought by The Tate and will go on exhibition later this year.
