Open in new window


This is the bulk of it - sorry for the poor picture quality, my decent camera is currently out of action.

All in all I am very happy with what I have got hold of in six months.

It is now listed on AbeBooks , it was sold recently on eBay from the vast cavorite51 estate of 'signed' items.

http://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/Boo ... rtby%3D1%26x%3D78%26y%3D9

I have emailed the seller to look at this thread and being a reputable dealer they have removed the letter from sale.

Yes, either "rogue bidding," or quite possibly a seller using multiple accounts to bid up their own item and give the appearance of demand. We'll have to wait for the end and see if the item is ever re-listed again to know if it truly sold.

Bruffyboy, you're going to have to take a few pictures of your collection (to show us) --which must, now, be swiftly taking on a fair size...

Like alpingloin I looked at this link & thought the initial asking price was $500; not that several people had bid that high. This must be in error. The $499 bid is straight out of the blue, with the one below it at around $10 --this doesn't sound plausible. Perhaps rogue bidding as you suggest alpingloin...
