Like others here I have a good selection of lucky finds in my collection, but recently I have been surprised at the benefits to be found in keeping a keen eye on the Amazon (UK) marketplace.

Last week I received a 1956 Hobbit (no DW) from a marketplace bookshop for £30 and thought I had done well. However, today a received a copy of the Report on the Excavation of Lydney Park, with Tolkien’s essay The Name ‘Nodens’, bought for £10 only! The marketplace seller was a small museum library shop in Wiltshire who presumably were selling off some unwanted stock.
