Obelix and Co.

£5.99

Product description

After Obelix single-handedly defeats the newly arrived Roman reinforcements to celebrate his own birthday, Caesar once again questions the possibility of annexing the rebellious Gaulish village; whereupon the Roman economist 'Caius Preposterus' proposes to introduce capitalism, by which to reduce the Gauls' interest in war. For that purpose, he moves into the camp of Totorum; and upon encountering Obelix, buys a menhir every day for increasing sums of money. When Preposterus demands more menhirs in exchange for more money, Obelix hires other villagers to help him make menhirs, and an equal number to hunt boar for him and his sculptors. This corporation later includes a cart-and-oxen with which to deliver half-a-dozen menhirs at once, and an ostentatious costume. Obelix's increasing wealth alienates Asterix and Dogmatix, and causes problems for the village men, whose wives reproach them for not matching his success.

Condition is very good - minimal rubbing to the cover edges and corners

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
