According to The Guardian:

"A copy of the world's most expensive book, John James Audubon's 19th-century masterpiece Birds of America, is set for auction later this month and is expected to sell for up to $10m (£6.5m)."

You can place your bids here: Christies

Stu: You might have to sell your car first.

Got it yesterday! In answer to the question of the order in which I keep my Tolkien books - I store the tall books on the bottom shelves, and the smaller books on the other shelves.

As for the order on the shelves - I stores 'em by colour, starting with green on the left.

At that price, I can live without it.

£100 plus would be total nonsense. I just don't understand what's happening with middle-of-the-road HarperCollins editions at present. These cannot possibly be rare; scarce perhaps...

Agreed that GBP 100 is nonsense for a relatively recent standard hardback, but the blue covered edition is the only one that allows for a complete set of matching HoME + Index + UT to be assembled, and this edition really does seem to actually be rare. I've only seen it come up for sale three times on eBay (which isn't to say I haven't missed it). For a long time I didn't really believe it existed and the Deagol was messing with our minds by having it on his site :)
