It appears that the two page handwritten letter (covered previously here) was withdrawn from the sale just before closing, and is no longer listed at all on the RRAuction website. The history page for that auction no longer shows item number 520 at all: http://www.rrauction.com/past_auction ... =430&order=Item&InvPage=7

I would assume there was an invisible reserve on the item which it failed to meet, which is not surprising given how expensive the letter was at Christies the year before.

"Shenandoah Volume XVIII No. 2, Winter 1967: A Tribute to Wystan Hugh Auden on His Sixtieth Birthday"

Shenandoah on ABEBooks

They mis-spelled "Tolkien" so some of you interested in this may not have seen it yet. Price listed is £ 60 (~$100 USD)

Anyone know what edition this is? I don't recall ever seeing this TT edition, but maybe I am just being dense this morning. Serious lack of info from the auction itself, of course.

eBay Item #141322945917

Further investigation shows a faint "voyager classics" watermark on the front cover, so I guess that answers that.

Uncorrected proofs don't show up in the marketplace often. Here is one on eBay for a US (Houghton Mifflin) Lays of Beleriand:
