I agree with Remy. It doesn't come as any surprise this book went for the value it did and I wouldn't have been suprised if it went for £300. Remember in an auction someone else was bidding £155 so that makes at least two people who wanted this book and as Remy says that is just on one auction on eBay for 9 days.
I paid £100 for my 1969 Lotr - does that make £149 expensive ? No of course not because khamul was happy to pay that amount at the time although others would say (maybe non Tolkien collectors) that even £100 is crazy.
I do believe that the Market will determine the value at any one given time which us what has happened here.
Personally I don't think we will see another copy for some time ago and if we do it will go for more. Time will tell I guess but if any of you guys want to sell your copy for £56 or £106 please let me know.
