Re: Silmarillion 1st Collector's edition on eBay

Hi,

I wasn't suggesting that GBP 741 is out of whack with current prices necessarily, more that I suspect that there will probably be a slump in prices as the UK and US economies (not exclusively, but in particular) go through a fairly hard time in the next 5 years.

My other 'collecting hobby' is high end hand-made replica swords (Scottish 1400-1600 being my particular area of interest) and from following the forums, collectors are definitely tightening their belts and more second-hand swords seem to be coming onto the market as casual collectors drop out and use their money for more sensible pursuits. It seems from my casual observation of eBay that the same applies with the books, and more 'high-end' JRRT stuff is also coming onto the marketplace the last few months.

Stu.
