I recently found this website and it might be useful for some members here. It's called Goofbay and it offers various tools like searching eBay seller history and misspelling search. I haven't found any bargains with it but it's fun to play around with. I found there are many ways to misspell Tolkien (just enter Tolkien correctly spelled in the misspelling tool). Examples:

Tolkein (this is the most popular misspelling)

The Dora Owen book sold for GBP211.79 on Ebay recently. The book was very well represented in the listing, the seller really did a good job with that. As far as I could tell no dust jacket present.

On abebooks there is a copy for sale WITH a dust jacket for GBP490.95.

I'm not in anyway an expert on pricing but I've read that a dust jacket can represent up to 80% of a book's value. So either the Ebay book sold too high or the Abebooks listing is a bargain? (The third option being I suck at math).
