I think this was just a bit of a mis-understanding / confusion on behalf of a few bidders.
As such, this is not quite a limited edition of 100 copies (There were one or two previous 'Limited' Editions). Thorton's are actually the publishers (Wim Meeuws) and the booklet is currently 'in print' and available.
I believe there were two other limited edition print runs (One being 250 copies and the other 50). I am not sure which was the first print run (possibly the 250 print run).
The current print run of 100 copies is not numbered. The earlier 250 print run is numbered on the back cover. I don't have one from the print run of 50 copies (if this exists - I belive from a previous conversation with Wim, that some/most/all of these may have been lost when he moved).
If the final bid were for a copy of the Numbered 250 Copy Limited Run, it may indeed reflect an appropriate price. I did see another copy (of the 250 print run) sell for somewhere around £60 last year on Ebay.
I hope I have most of the above information correct (not 100% on all of it, but I think it is mostly right).
