Out of curiosity and to see if I could shed any more light on this
thread, I did a little searching yesterday and found a few bits to share.

The so-called "Pericles manuscript" has been discussed on ExLibris, the
Electronic News and Discussion Group for Those Interested in Rare Books,

third folio, Pericles section, disbound. It was being offered by
"Eldras" who should be well known to many on this list. The listing was

can't confirm bids beyond that.

I highly recommend viewing Eldras' listings for anyone interested in the
underbelly of eBay.
