Lost for words. I received this set from HarperCollins and wanted to kill it with fire it was so rubbish. In fact, this was the set that stopped me collecting new Tolkien books. Maybe I should put 'em on eBay...

Wow that guy is living in dream land with those prices.

Surely nobody is crazy enough to spend that kind of money?


Hopefully not. He is probably looking to recoup the cost of the custom slipcases as well as make a profit. They appear to be nice slipcases (David Miller produces a good product with these, I think), but I personally doubt they actually add much monetary value to a book (much the same way facsimile DJs don't).

With regards to those three map books, I have the 1st impressions of each, and I think they varied from about a pound for the cheapest to three or four pounds for the most expensive. Pretty sure they were all remaindered (without remainder marks). They aren't very good books or maps, IMHO.

Once anyone has read it, I'd be interested on hearing the verdict, especially as to whether it is worth purchasing if you already have The Monsters and the Critics.

Mine arrived a couple of days ago too, I was a little surprised to click your link and see that HC describe it as 300 pages as opposed to the actual 157 pages it is.

A rather big difference if a person orders it from them and gets half the book they expected.
