One of the things about being new to the collecting game is I missed the days when these books were new or cheap(er). Still, I am happy to pay £600 as it's not too much over the inflated RRP price. If I'd have bought it new in 92 it would have been £400 in today's money, so I'm adding around 50% which I think is fair.

If someone else got a bargain I'm happy for you :)


But you could have bought this Abebooks bargain instead

http://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/Boo ... 6kn%3Dsigned%26sortby%3D1

just slightly more than the 50% you paid

This is also one of my favourite sets of the LOTR, though I prefer the colour on the one volume deluxe. Having said that for me The Lord of the Rings should be red, The Hobbit green and The Silmarillion blue. HarperCollins got all the colours wrong on the illustrated deluxe versions
