Ok, based on their Facebook page the final bid was for 1150 Euros. Does not include any fees (see next paragraph).

Also careful reading of the auction description page shows that the 50 Euro fee was for membership to the week-long festival, so you got other benefits besides being able to bid, so I was wrong to call it just a "bidder registration fee".

Given that this was a charity auction I am hoping beyond hope that the winner was bidding the charity, not the book.

"Proceeds from the auction will go to local charities."
