The auction ended early. Did anyone here get it?

Yes, I noticed that there are no sellers for the item on either Amazon.co.uk or Abebooks. And there are seemingly no libraries back here in Sweden which include it in their collections.

Nice to at least see a picture of it, though - beautiful cover!

Have a look at this thread for more information on this book (one of the most treasured books in my collection).

Rest assured Orcraider didn't let it go for cheap. Although, speaking as someone who doesn't own a copy, the price it sold for (privately) was alarmingly high. Think another zero --& some!

Are you sure it actually sold or did he decide just to hang on to it?

I'm sure I'm not the only one to ask him that very question (still waiting for a reply)!

I won't disclose the price, as that isn't really any of my business, but Orcraider confirmed it was sold --and paid. I don't have any reason to suspect otherwise. Of course, deals fall through --but in this case the money has, metaphorically, changed hands. And, I may be mistaken, but I'm sure he would have said if he had decided to simply hold onto it.

For anyone interested... I think I might have been willing to pay $500.00 max but this is way too expensive. Maybe one of you will buy it.

I was just about to throw up this link, but you've beat me to it Jlong! Too expensive for me. Never mind dollars, this is more than 500 pounds...
