Re: Signed LotR to be Auctioned Off

The first Tolkien item (# 511 - The Hobbit "file copy") is up on Abebooks:

The Hobbit (J and M Books Limited)

It's listed at £9500. When you consider ABE's 13.5% fees (if that's still what ABE charges), this equates to about £8200 to the seller. The hammer price was £3200 at Dominic Winter auctioneers; so about £3840 cost to the buyer (20% was it?).

What do you guys think of the mark-up? Not, actually, as much as I'd have imagined.
