MUCH Too expensive for me, but a set that doesn't come up very often.

There was a review copy, clearly photographed, & (I'm guessing) in better condition, that went on eBay in early August for £20...

Mind you. that is an odd auction as the text claims that the books are Houghton Mifflin (and makes reference to a 4th printing of volume 12) and the picture shows the UK editions, including the Index. I wonder what the buyer eventually receives...

Completely agree. But that was why I put in a best offer. I didn't want it enough. If I had "really wanted" it, I would of course used the BIN.

Congrats on purchase. And indeed, I too have only seen a few advance copies over the years.

Interested indeed !

Been after an advance copy of the Sil for ages and so throw in the interesting book plate as well - too good to resist.

Ok cover not great but when all said and done its exactly the same as a Billings copy which will cost extra £5 tops if I want to change it.

I really wouldn't like to lose a book trying to get £10 or £20 off the price if you want it. I can only recall seeing 1-2 of these in years and have never seen a Tolkien library bookplate therefore £40 good value in my eyes.

Need to do a little research on it so if anyone has any ideas would welcome it.

Did the Tolkien Society have a library somewhere in 1977 ?
or
Has someone just made this up and in which case why?

You see hours of entertainment for £40 !
