Now, now Qweniden --don't be too impatient; we're just not the fastest moving forum out there...

I don't know the answer (personally) to your question. Most of the books/items I do have were, in reality, fairly easy to get hold off --I've still to get all the hard stuff. I think the reality is, unless you take into account other factors (as you state) like condition, most Tolkien is fairly common; real rarities are quite uncommon I would suggest. But, like you, a few items haven't really come up in the condition I'd like; or at least not for the price I'd like to match!

What book/set in your collection was the hardest to obtain?

For me, its probablly the Ballantine Paperback Reprint Edition from 1986 and 1987

Open in new window


While I have much rarer books in my collection they were easy to get. It was strangly hard for me to find a collectable copy of this set with a good box and no cracked spines.

How about you? What was a challange for you to find?

Ah, then clearly Pauline did cross the Atlantic in her later years. I never knew that.

I also enquired about the book and the seller's reply to me was:

"The signature is genuine, as the books were signed in the editorial offices of Random House."
