Here's an interesting ebay anecdote - I picked up a copy of TLOTR as a "buy it now" - then recieved an email from the seller telling me he had made a mistake on the price and wasn't going to honor the transaction. He refunded the money - but I'd rather have the book.

'If you want an investment, buy gold' - bit harsh there.


It's true though. I collect books because I like them not for value or an investment.

I don't think you can seriously class collecting Tolkien books as a great investment.

Well, I for one don't buy books because I think their value will go up. (well, I have done that once or twice; bought a duplicate because I thought I could sell one. Still got 'em!)

But in general, I buy what I can afford, as Stu says - because I like them.

Ordered this book, one year ago from Amazon and it arrived today

It is good to finally get all three of the new editions of John Howe's maps with Brian Sibley's commentary.
