Near Fine?..... Yeah, right. The damage from the removed bookplate / library plate (whatever it was) is really pretty nasty and the DJ isn't in fab shape. I don't know why sellers feel the need to exaggerate their gradings so much with Tolkien books.

Perhaps this has been mentioned elsewhere, but last night I discovered that the slipcase for my HC 1st printing of Wayne & Christina's The Art of the Lord of the Rings is printed backwards. Every other slipcase I have (including the companion Hobbit Art volume) is oriented so that the front of the book is facing the same direction as the front (title side) of the slipcase. In other words, when shelved (spine out) all titles face right. Not so with this volume. I'm wondering if anyone else noticed this and whether this apparent mistake was corrected (have there been additional printings?).

Yes, trying to persuade someone elsewhere online who has TT and RoTK from the movie tie-in/special edition set (but is missing FoTR) not to pay more than retail for a copy of the matching FoTR. Unfortunately people look at Abe and eBay and only see these ridiculous overpriced listings and start to think the books are valuable. When in actual fact it is simply that they haven't started to churn onto the secondary market yet.

I looked at my copies last night, and I'm still seething that I paid HarperCollins full price for them. At best one could call them low-end paperbacks badly glued into cardboard/cloth.

They obviously are just hoping on an idiot with more money than sense!
