Tom Shippey and John Garth, perhaps?

What fascinated me was that already 1,721 people on FB have liked this event. The Return of the Ring has only 734 likes so far.

Completists might be interested in purchasing this catalogue (Catalogue 698: Auction on June 5 and 6, 2012):

http://www.stargardt.de/en/contact_2/

There's the following note on the dealer's site: "25 € INCL. DISPATCH WITHIN EUROPE" (and no mention of shipping costs outside Europe). Although I see no reason why they wouldn't ship outside Europe, I'd be glad to help any non-Europeans in case they don't offer this possibility. Just send me a message.

Here's a link to the catalogue :

http://www.stargardt.de/download/file/698/I_Literatur.pdf

Lot 274 is the letter, and lot 275 is a sale of a signed and inscribed Tree and Leaf.

Since my German is not that good: even though the lot description says "Ein Brief mit fünfzeiliger e. Nachschrif", does not the sale actually include three letters (1 März, 16 März, 7 Dezember)?

Yep, I'm starting to think I need to reconsider my strategy! But maybe one day some ignorant seller is offering that truly lucky find, disguised behind a bad description...

Speaking about Farmer Giles:

I've recently been quick on ordering some books having turned up as buy-now (not on eBay, though), and I've been quite unlucky so far. In most cases, I should probably have written an email to ask for a clarification -- the sellers haven't included much information and there has been no image.

For example, last week I bought an item listed as "Farmer Giles of Ham, 1st ed., 1957" (thus 2nd impr.) Price: €16, so quite cheap. However, it arrived today without dustjacket Not very collectible nor desirable!
