On the internet auction e-bay this "unique" copy of The Master and Margarita was presented in May 2006. On May 26 at 11:41:52, the closing time for bidding, it had been watched 86 times, but nobody had opened the bidding

The book, in Russian, was presented as a unique copy, of which the cover was "handmade from a thousand years old oak", and witha handmade lock. It was illustrated by Aleksander Bakulevsky and the asking price was 3.299,00 US dollar. The seller could, for those who asked for it, make a similar copy - "language at your choice". Each copy would have its own identification number and, so he said: "...and its own price, of course".
