Hi
Well done
You did ok I think at £80 for full set as they are not often for sale
I am still looking for a return of king to make up my set if you now have a spare ?

I have just returned from an extended stay in Greece
Was walking by a used book store and couldnt believe my eyes ! In amongst all the foreign titles was a very old looking Hobbit with DJ.
Rubber burned off my soles - only the find in was a very scruffy later copy in disguise-!!!!!!!!!!!!

O well - keep searching

I'm actually starting to find it a bit depressing; anything even slightly appealing to collectors is going for hundreds --mostly, I guess, to bookdealers. And some books, that you just want to read (like Rayner's Remembrancer), are going for more money than I'm likely to spend on any book ever! Other more desirable editions are just totally unaffordable, & I don't think I'll ever be able to acquire these books. Which, purely from a research point of view (if that's not too grand a term for examining these books), is really annoying.

>Yes, I see it on his blog now --the Alan Lee set. Yes, very nice. Purely from a personal point of view, this is the sort of set which I really don't think is worth the £600 Bruffyboy paid for it; never mind the higher prices he suggests it's 'worth'. But, everyone to their own --if one wants to pay hundreds (or into the thousands) for books produced by HarperCollins in the 90's, fair enough. Just seems too much...

£600 would be right at the top-end price-wise for any of the HC Super-Deluxes, I think. Realistically, no Tolkien book should be "worth" that kind of price, old or new. Tolkien Book prices make absolutely no sense, and long-term I can only see prices going down across the board.

laurel, I eventually got a fairly decent (probably VG/VG-) set for £80; which is alright I suppose. Just couldn't locate an affordable copy of FR on its own.
