Greetings, everyone. I have listed for sale on ebay, the unabridged audio books for The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings. They are all CD format. They are in great shape, as they were only listened to once and well cared for during that time. The shrink wrap is still on them, but it has been opened just enough to get at the cd's. I have them listed as 'buy it now or best offer.'

Now that would have been a good deal. Are you sending back?


No, Laurel, I am not sending them back. They came from the UK and I am in the US. The way the postal system has been operating due to US Homeland Security over the last six months or so, everything I have purchased from the UK has taken a minimum of 30 days to arrive (even airmail packages). As I said, the books themselves are in fantastic condition, and I think well worth the money.

Great rewards of bargain hunting always come with inherent risks. All part of the fun!

P.S. Anyone looking for a nice set of laminated dust jackets?

This is the problem with ebay - you are relying on sellers description and sometimes forget to ask the obvious. I have just brought two items - both were sent but itturned out someone elses photo was used ! Pleasingly seller refunded in full on one immediately and waiting ebay judgement on other one today.
Keep looking for those bargains

I have a 1942 edition (which has the same acknowledgement to Tolkien quoted by Beren) and states

First Published January 1938
Reprinted February 1938, April 1938
1942

That suggests (as Beren says) that 1944 would be at least a 5th printing.
