    Tired of losing auctions on Ebay when bidding? Tired of waiting up all night, finger poised at the last second, hoping that you were the one to get the final maximum bid in place? Wanting to go out somewhere, but couldn't for fear of missing out on your desired item?

    There is an answer. It's called AuctionSniper and can be found here http://www.auctionsniper.com

    Basically, once you register free, you get 3 Free 'Snipes', after which you pay a very reasonable fee, (cents, pennies, not much). You place the item number that you would like to bid upon in the box provided, set the lead time, (5 secs) and then just leave the software to do it's business, allowing you to go to bed, do the shopping, walk the dog whatever.

    We find it amazingly efficient and very effective in winning auctions.

    Take a look, see for yourselves, and let me know what you think.

    Kindest regards & best wishes

    Oh!! And if you fancy buying a beautiful old map of London, dated 1754, type in Tower Street Ward and you'll see our latest map there, $44.00 opening bid, go on, you know you want to.

    Is the assumption with this software that you are willing to go as high in price as necessary to win the auction? I mean, if I'm bidding on a beat-up copy of the New World Translation, I may not want to press the bidding into the thousand dollar range, know what I mean? On the other hand, if you know how much you're willing to spend, eBay lets you enter that as your maximum bid without any special software. And if somebody else is willing to spend more, hey, that's why they have auctions.

    Hello Mark,

    Nice map. It looks like John Stow's 1775 issue. Poor sod died penniless and if I buy any more maps so will I...lol

    Take care - HS

    PS - If you have any decent, early US stuff, especially California, let me know off-line.

    Hi Hilary, no probs, will do, will keep an eye open for you. The map here is dated 1754, though John Stow, yes, that is correct.


    The purpose of AuctionSniper is just as the name suggests. It leaves you the freedom to carry on with your life, doing other things safe in the knowledge that your item wanted, will not be lost to someone else. Basically, it bids up for you to your maximum figure. If it goes below your figure by lets say 100 quid, then that is the price you would end up paying.

    Take a look at the site, it's fairly self explanatory.

    Best wishes

    That is interesting. I thought the 1754 map had the cartouche on the left and the later version on the right. If it is dated 1754 on the map I would be interested in this one.

    PS - I also collect early detailed maps of mid Italy if you come across any - thanks.

    Hey hill...I have some old atlas maps of Italy from I think 1919, from the King of England''s Royal Atlas for that year. I just looked and I have four that you might like. if you send me your address I will ship them off to you this week. Consider it a late Secret Santa from a possible colleague.
