This is ridiculous indeed. I actually had to go back and look a second time because I thought it was just a high asking price. I hadn't even considered that it had bids that high! The only explanation I can muster is from an ebay experience of my own. I had listed a copy of the Deluxe History of Middle Earth Part II, which at the time was typically fetching $250 to $300, from the other auctions I had been watching. By the end, my auction somehow reached nearly $800, and I thought I had hit the jackpot (relatively speaking, that is). After a few days of non-payment, I contacted the bidder, who had no idea about the auction and was not even a Tolkien fan. It turned out that his account had been hijacked and bids were placed without his knowing. Maybe a similar situation on the ACE set?

I can't believe someone one would bid that much. I bought that same set recently (buy it now) and in near fine condition for under $70 on eBay.

How good is this blog? More photos, more photos! Look at the one (Trotter) posted: loads of lovely Silmarillions to look at. Think, besides the two 1982 Super Deluxe editions (& various US editions), I have most (all) of these. Don't have them on display quite as nicely though...
