SonOfDolf, I think putting your highest bid in at the last minute is the best bet, but putting a higher value than you think it is worth never makes sense. I would question whether the book is worth more than 300-325. It isn't rare and has a non-valuable signature. If you look at all the other bidders except you and the winner, they maxed out at 250. You thought 300 was the probable selling price, but chose to exceed that heavily in your max bid. I don't understand your bidding behaviour as - had you won - you would have overpaid.

Looking at the bid history, there were two bidders prepared to pay over 250. The second bidder that dropped out may well have been aware of the Thorntons copy. That or a shill bidder of course.

I believe that both books are identical, in that both ISBNs are listed in each book. The only differentiator is the paper insert which differs between versions. A signed "unsigned" copy would be identical to the officially signed version.

Thanks for the excellent information, Wayne. Thinking about it, I think I now remember seeing pictures on eBay where the Hobbit was a larger size. Of course, this probably means that I will need to buy one for completeness sake. Sigh.

Hi Jeremy,
I don't have any of the recent EP editions (S&G, TftPR, CoH) because they weren't available outside of the US new. The only times I have seen them on eBay they have been expensive, and given they might reprint at any time, it makes no sense to spend a lot of money.

If they do reprint, I will definitely be taking you up on your kind offer to be an intermediary!

On the subject of the end papers, all my books definitely have the silk.

Stu
