Agree boneschops. You would think after 1-2 or maybe even 3 -4 weeks they would realise price just too high to sell. This being said i guess at 50p -£1 a go it is worth it on on items worth £100s - certainly a lot cheaper than auction houses at 15-20%. This is I suspect the factor which drives people in direction of ebay.

It amazes me that some people relist things for the same price week after week after week. Ok this has only been listed once before, but I've seen some stuff doing the rounds on eBay for months now.

I don't know what the fees are for somewhere like abe books where maybe you could just shove it on and hope somebody will eventually come along and pay xx price, but surely eBay fees will start to mount up...

Hi Bruffyboy
Trust u are still happy. This set went unsold for £599.96 - guess someone withdrew their bid! thats ebay for you.

The all in one book didnt sell either and is readvertised. Still thing £800 is too much.

Here is an abebooks item, I think it may be the Spanish Lord of the Rings as a paperback, but why the price??????? (UK £ 64231.44 + the all important £11 postage)

Hi funkybudah,

Never knew a limited edition of this existed either and it seems like nobody here has ever heard of it either (and these forums are probably browsed by a large number of collectors with some of the most extensive private Tolkien Collections).

Therefore placing a value on your item would seem like quite an impossible task (with no previous sales to compare against).

Speaking personally, I would have a mild interest in the item (but others here may have a much greater interest). My main focus is on printed material but I do collect audio also.

My only suggestion is that if you wish to sell it - then list it on Ebay with a starting bid of 1 penny or 1 cent. You can be pretty much assured it will find it's value (especially if you announce the ebay listing on this forum).

Best Wishes.
