MMMMM thats ebay for you.
dont think £201 was going to win it but worth a try.

Did any of you other folk win it?

Hi everyone,
I have long liked the look of the folio editions of Tolkien books, but the UK site only has the Hobbit available right now, and second hand sellers all seem to be in used condition.

Something that has peeved me for a good 12 months is how the US Folio site has an introductory offer where you can get LOTR, Hobbit and Silmarillion for $10: http://foliosociety.org.uk/folio/tolkien.php

Now what's to stop me from getting someone in America to sign up for this offer, then complete the membership by (for example) buying 4 more Tolkien's (Hobbit perhaps) all of which I pay for. Next they post over to me, and I sell the 4 Hobbits and keep the rest?

Possible issues:
1) Would these US editions be any different to the UK editions? They look the same but I'm guessing they would differ in some way.

Or am I just crazy, and should I just keep an eye out for nice copies here in the UK on ebay etc?

Thanks again

well I went in at £201 which seemed OK until 10 seconds to go when it shot up to £404! Couldn't part with that much I'm afraid. Shame, was excited about that all day!
