Many books from Michael H.R. Tolkien (son of J.R.R.Tolkien) is being selling in ebay. I talked with the seller and he said that for now does not sell the books separately.

I want to buy some books that are not signed. If someone buys, please contact me to negotiate.

Here is the ebay auction:

Hello friends, i need your help.

Does anyone have a 1947. version of ''On Fairy-Stories'' in digital format to send me ( the one published in ''Essays Presented to Charles Williams.'') ?
If no, can anyone list me differences between 1947 and 1964 version (from Tree and Leaf)?

Thanks in advance!

I actually think eBay is worse than AbeBooks these days. I have actually purchased a handful of books on Abe for less than they generally sell on eBay in the last couple of years. That said, both eBay and Abe are chocked full of resellers selling stock-photo books they don't actually have.

I haven't bought many books on eBay at all the last couple of years (but I have used it for other stuff, such as buying Brodart covers). As a place to buy relatively generic stuff that can't be picked up locally, it is OK. And that is because eBay has morphed from being a person-to-person site selling unwanted stuff people want to offload to being (mostly) a business to consumer site selling endless piles of generic Chinese crap (whilst taking a fat cut from the product, payments, logistics, etc). eBay deserves to be crushed under the weight of its own greed, frankly.

The sad thing is that there is really no prospect of ever getting a service again like eBay *used* to be, because it is impossible to be successful without a critical mass of buyers and sellers.
