Librarian Anthony Tedeschi has discovered some rare works by the 19th Century English artist Paul Braddon squeezed between the rare books at the Dunedin Public Libarary. Paul Braddon was well known for painting scenes from Charles Dickens' novels. The 60 watercolours are estimated to be worth $100,000.
