[ModLib] ebay people are a strange lot

Or, as I'm trying to build a collection, there are often more ML editions (that I do not have)available at any one time than I'm willing to buy at one time, so I watch some to learn from the "market place".  The watch feature, as you know,  allows me to return easily to the results of an auction in which I did not bid.  I too was surprised that Joseph Hill's Jane Austin didn't attract any bids -- I think that I watched it along with the other lost souls.

Knowing it to be a quick sale for a non-ML collector; as the Jane Austen series is at this time running on PBS. I listed a VG/VG copy of the six novel Giant edition @ $15.00
No bids!!!
Yet, seven people on my ebay "watch list."for the book.
My question is, what were they "watching?"
As for myself, I had rather "watch" grass grow.

Is there a difference between the spine on a 3 versus 4?

I just sold 26.1 Mikado VG/VG, spine #3 but with logo  facing left. (see
guide Pps.28)
This makes it difficult to describe to buyer.
What do I call the spine, 3 1/2 or -4?
