This is only if you have purchased the item through Abebooks.

The seller gets into trouble with Abebooks if they do not complete the order, however if the buyer cancels the order Abebooks can do nothing about it.

Why do you even need to cancel the order Trotter? I usually just go through the Ask Bookseller a Question & approach seller that way. ABE cut is still 13.5% I think; I'm sure someone can confirm. That aside, if an item has been up on ABE or AMAZON for years, why shouldn't you approach the seller about negotiating a lower price? I can't remember the last time I paid the listed price for an ABE item.

Red, not the same set though, I don't think; latter listed set has slightly more sun-damaged RK dj spine, and mark to TT dj spine. They probably just listed it after seeing that other price! I'd be amazed if it went for more...

Interesting. The winning bidder was p**w, and immediately afterwards powell2317 put this similar set up for bid.

I wonder what it will go for?

Again, am I missing something? I know it's a nice set, but £600+?
