I forgot to say: thanks, Stu, for sharing a link to that first Bookpeople Hobbit -- I bought it (seller relisted it as buy-it-now).

Yes he did, and in doing so broke ebay rules on ending an auction when people were bidding on it

I don't know why ebay have any rules at all, they do not enforce any of them.

http://pages.ebay.co.uk/help/sell/questions/endlist-now.html

"You might end your listing early because:

The item is no longer available for sale. (Please note that you shouldn't list an item on eBay if there's a chance you'll sell it elsewhere before the listing ends.)
"

Morgan, not at all cross with you, well done paying £5 for this
It's ebay and the seller that I am not happy with.

Update: Seller reported to ebay and a case is being opened against them.

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!

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 :)

This is interesting, the dust-jacket is Guild Publishing but the book is Unwin Hyman.

Did they get released with the incorrect dust-jackets, or is this a marriage?

This is a less-than-common item, currently at a (very) good price.
