I should say that I only asked if the seller could change to international shipping. S/he then suggested to change to a fixed price, which I agreed upon -- the auction had no bids by then, IIRC. Strangely enough, the seller didn't relist the auction until some days later, when a bid had been placed. I thought it was kind of odd -- but what to do? Sorry for stepping on your toes, Trotter: it wasn't my intention!


You did nothing wrong, well done on getting the item


If it is any consolation, Trotter, I only paid GBP 2.40 for my copy with Dust Jacket, and there were no other bidders. I expect another copy will be along soon enough :)


Got one at last, double Stu's outlay though

I can't remember if this has been mentioned but the ISBN is different in the copy that I got from my original copy without dust-jacket.

BookPeople Hobbit (dust-jacket) ISBN 978-0-00-792704-3
HarperCollins Hobbit (no dust-jacket) ISBN 978-0-00-748730-1

Nice one! As I said, wasn't sure. My Letters is buried in a box somewhere...
