As normal UK only.

The programme shows the oldest known copy of the Saga of Erik the Red (http://sagadb.org/eiriks_saga_rauda.en), shown in the picture below.

"Dan Snow uncovers the lost Vikings in America with space archaeologist Dr Sarah Parcak. Sarah uses satellites 383 miles above the earth to spot ruins as small as 30cm buried beneath the surface. As Sarah searches for Viking sites from Britain to America, Dan explores how they voyaged thousands of miles when most ships never left the shoreline. He also tracks their expansion west, first as raiders and then as settlers and traders throughout Britain and beyond to Iceland and Greenland. In North America they excavate what could be the most westerly Viking settlement ever discovered."

I think the seller would be very happy to get the latest bids for this book, £3900, final sale was for £4300.

Condition is important for copies without dust-jackets, even if the cloth covering and the boards are nearly always in poor condition, but this book does have serious condition problems on the inside of the book, which the seller has shown in the photos of the item.

The item appears to have not fetched the reserve and looks to be unsold.

Thank you Jeremy, very helpful!

There was a previous edition of this book in a slightly different format (which is what the 1993 refers to I believe): Tolkien Books


This is not "Poems from the Hobbit", as the book is called "Poems by J.R.R Tolkien", so don't think it is what the 1993 refers to.
