I will snipe on something that I really, really want, but most auctions end during the Antipodean night, so I generally can't be bothered. It is also a technique that isn't so effective now that everyone does it.

That's a pretty special collection of Hobbits. Maybe one day if I inherit a big pile of money from a long lost relative.....!

I can't think of any reason why this book would be sold like this, it appears that even if some idiot bought these items, they do not get the box that comes with the ill-judged two book paperback boxset Hobbit

They are here in Australia, I notice without surprise.

Books are rare here - they might be the only two books in the country.

That is still one more book than people that can read, though.

I should say that I only asked if the seller could change to international shipping. S/he then suggested to change to a fixed price, which I agreed upon -- the auction had no bids by then, IIRC. Strangely enough, the seller didn't relist the auction until some days later, when a bid had been placed. I thought it was kind of odd -- but what to do? Sorry for stepping on your toes, Trotter: it wasn't my intention!


You did nothing wrong, well done on getting the item


If it is any consolation, Trotter, I only paid GBP 2.40 for my copy with Dust Jacket, and there were no other bidders. I expect another copy will be along soon enough :)
