Here's one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/2002-1ST-Ed-3-Vol ... tible&hash=item5889e536ac

First edition? Good examples go for $1300? Hardly!

I got mine (brand new condition) from ebay for £20.00, and later on, got Alan Lee to sign 'em for me. Wonder how much this ... twit... would put on those.

To me, they're priceless.

Funnily enough, my copy of the 1997 Folio Sil went missing en-route as well. In the end, I found out about 6 months later that the seller had sent it to an old address related to my paypal account, and not the address they (a) told me they sent it to, (b) I had listed on the payment or (c) I had listed on the eBay transaction and (d) I had re-iterated in the text of the paypal payment.

I only figured this out because it was the address of my previous employer and I happened to bump into someone who still worked there that mentioned they had a parcel for me, so I got them to forward it on. I've always wondered how the buyer got the wrong address from Paypal/eBay as it was not listed on on any of the electronic communications between us. However it occurred, it seemed like a fairly significant privacy breach for someone to gain access to address details that were not supplied as part of the transaction. After that I deleted all of my old addresses from both accounts, just in case it happened again...

Still, I got the book in the end (so I didn't lose my twenty quid)!

Well the folio edition never turned up, full refund offered, so it's back to the original £100, all of which I will be sending to David as a deposit on one of my top three wants!
