Emeritus Professor Eric Sharpe (1933-2000) was an international authority on the reception and understanding of world religions. The protégé of British post war academic, S. G. F. Brandon, Sharpe studied and worked in Sweden and the U.K, before joining the University of Sydney as Professor of Religious Studies in 1977, where he stayed until his retirement in 1996. Sharpe authored several books and through the 1980's and '90s had a popular morning radio program on religion, culture and society. He was passionate about literature, in particular the books of Rudyard Kipling among others.

You can place individual bids at anytime up until the close of a lot. You can also place a maximum bid in the system for any lot. The system will only bid on your behalf if another bid is placed on that lot, e.g. say lot 2 has a bid of $20 already, you leave a maximum bid of $100, this system will execute your bid and you will be the high bidder at $25, if another bid is place for $50 then your next bid would be executed at $55 and so on.
