This is an auction for POSSESSION by A S Byatt.

From Wikipedia:

"Possession: A Romance is a 1990 bestselling novel by British writer A. S. Byatt. It won the 1990 Booker Prize. Part historical as well as contemporary fiction, the title Possession refers to issues of ownership and independence between lovers, the practice of collecting historically significant cultural artifacts, and to the possession that a biographer feels they have of their subject. The novel incorporates many different styles and devices: diaries, letters and poetry, in addition to third-person narration. Possession is as concerned with the present day as it is with the Victorian era, pointing out the differences between the two time periods, and satirizing such things as modern academia and mating rituals. Time Magazine included the novel in its TIME 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005. In 2003 the novel was listed on the BBC's survey The Big Read... The novel concerns the relationship between two fictional Victorian poets, Randolph Henry Ash (whose life and work are loosely based on those of the English poet Robert Browning, or Alfred, Lord Tennyson, whose work is more consonant with the themes that are portrayed as Ash, as well as his being poet-laureate to Queen Victoria) and Christabel LaMotte (similarly based on Christina Rossetti), as revealed to present day academics Roland Michell and Maud Bailey. Following a trail of clues from letters and journals, they attempt to uncover the truth about Ash and LaMotte's past before it is discovered by rival colleagues . . . "
