This is, unlike most eBay descriptions that I list, a rare item, but I question the slipcase description looking at the picture (shown below)

Lord of the Rings - Alan Lee - Centenary Ed. - 1992 in slipcase £269.90 Buy it Now

All three books are in very good condition. All spines faultless and tight. Dustjackets not price clipped and all in very good condition with only minimal wear (The Two Twoers even in near mint condition). Only the slipcase shows clears signs of use and wear and is only in acceptable condition with scratches and rubbing off to corners. But since there have only been about 100 slipcased editions been issued according to Peter Collier from tolkienlibrary it is save to say this is rare!

Looking at the picture below, do people think this is acceptable (in fact is acceptable a correct term for books or slipcases)??

I have a few large poster maps that have been illustrated by the wonderful Pauline Baynes, and some by Tolkien himself (coloured, but I'm assuming that this was done afterwards by the printer?), and am curious if they are worth anything (money is short I'm afraid!).

I've had them for about 24 years, more in some cases.

Note: they are not signed (sorry to say).

As follows:

Bilbo's Last Song illustrated by Pauline Baynes

Map of Middle-Earth illustrated by Pauline Baynes (the Fellowship at the top, Black Riders at the bottom)

Map of Beleriand (and the lands to the north) - with drawings of the emblems of the various Elven houses top and bottom - drawings of the embles by Tolkiien, map drawing by his son, Christopher

'Combined' poster - at the top is Thror's Map, at the bottom is Wilderland - both maps as seen in The Hobbit, map of Wilderland is in full colour

Bilbo Comes to the Huts of the Raft Elves - this is a poster advertisement for a 1987 exhibition at the Bodleian Library in Oxford, 'Drawings for The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien' - this contains a large print of Tolkien's original drawing, now in colour

Are they worth anything to collectors?

Many thanks

OK... thanks for that feedback... I'll see what I can do, since changing stuff in ebay seems not so straight forward, but I'll try to get it all done as soon as possible!
