Very good start price for the UK 1st printing, don't have any affiliation with the seller though.

It is now listed at $490 as Buy It Now (for US shipping), but as was pointed out most of the booklets are missing.

Anyone desperate to complete their set of The Silmarillion audiobooks? Here's Volume II, and what a bargain!

Hey, at least it's free shipping!

>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

Unfortunately, the hardcore professional bookdealers are a bit like estate agents and second hand car dealers. They do have their place, but for the most part they just add to the cost incurred by everyone and drive prices up. I may have just been unlucky, but I have to say that my least satisfactory purchases (in terms of correct/accurate product description) have been from professional bookdealers. Even the more well known Tolkien book dealers can be a bit "optimistic" with their descriptions on occasion (and I'm not THAT picky).

Like others here I have a good selection of lucky finds in my collection, but recently I have been surprised at the benefits to be found in keeping a keen eye on the Amazon (UK) marketplace.

Last week I received a 1956 Hobbit (no DW) from a marketplace bookshop for £30 and thought I had done well. However, today a received a copy of the Report on the Excavation of Lydney Park, with Tolkien’s essay The Name ‘Nodens’, bought for £10 only! The marketplace seller was a small museum library shop in Wiltshire who presumably were selling off some unwanted stock.
