Update on E. H. Shepard Auction

In November, I noted an upcoming auction of E. H. Shepard drawings from the Winnie the Pooh books at Sotheby's in London. Last week Reuters reported that the sale exceeded even the high expectations, with "He went on tracking, and Piglet...ran after him" selling for £115,250 and "Bump, bump, bump--going up the stairs" for £97,250. Even the latter-day Piglet drawing I linked to turned out to be worth £8,750.
