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!

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.
