Seriously. What an unutterable pile of stinking piddle. £156!?

Mental. Totally mental.

To put in context, as Stu states --you can pick up a copy of PoME for this price. (I just bought a LotRs, 1 volume, 1969 Deluxe India Paper Edition for £149!)

Well, it's their money I suppose.

But I would argue that "Peoples" doesn't really make any sense for that price, either. It is expensive because someone decided to claim it was rare a few years back, even though it isn't rare at all. It is hard to rationalise the prices, because buying a book for 150 pounds simply isn't rational in any way, be it a relatively rate UT or PoME. I think, generally speaking, prices seem to be moderating a lot, and that can only be a good thing.

Still, if I got another chance to pick up a second copy of this sub 50 pounds, I definitely would (as I have two sets of HoME -- and it would be nice to complete the "B" set which I have on display).

Except for "my book buying days being over", of course (Doh!)
