I had a similar experience a few years ago with a seller on ABE. They listed an earlier printing of The Hobbit at a very good price (<$30) so I ordered it immediately. I waited for over a month and the item never appeared. When I notified the seller they immediately refunded my money and stated that it "must have been lost in the post". When I enquired as to any tracking information they had to see where it had disappeared, I was informed that they had no such information. I suspect the seller simply returned my money and sold the book to someone else at a much better price.

It will be interesting to see what the final sales price is.

It looks as if saul zaentz and company are trying to ensure the word "Shire" doesn't end up being used by anyone other than themselves; or at least within the context of Tolkien's works. What's next, the word "Elves"?
