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!

I agree. It's very off-putting with reserves. If a seller is cautious about sale price, it's better to list the item with a higher lowest starting bid.
