This is where I was on it. This one could be had for around 2k US vs a new offering from the Tolkien Bookshelf for a clean and signed copy for just under 5k, likely could haggle that down a little. Is a clean and signed copy worth double? The numbers hurt regardless.

Yes, I can confirm, that Martin sold it privatly. Price was negotiated and was acceptable. GBP is cheap these days

Laurel/MartinsCat is an old hand at buying and selling Tolkien Books. I doubt he would have purchased it without doing due diligence and knowing he can turn it for a profit! I don't think I would personally enjoy owning it - some editions are OK in less than perfect condition, but tatty deluxes are a bit of an oxymoron; I just don't see the point in owning them.
