This is not a set I'd particularly set my sights on. But, last month, I was in my local Oxfam bookshop --& they had a nice set (not without faults, but probably about VG+/VG+) for £60. I'll have that...

Since it has been coming up as a potential source in another thread, I thought this would be interesting to the group:

I'd be concerned as to whether the seller even owns the set. Some people just have transaction histories that make you suspicious - and this guy seems to have purchased a couple of "get rich quick" schemes from eBay if you look at his feedback history. Couple that fact with the fact that the photos he has used are in the public domain and I would be steering well clear (even if he wasn't asking for triple the going value).

****NEW**** TolkienBooks.net now has a sister site - SFandFantasy.co.uk - a collection of bibliographies listing books by Science Fiction and Fantasy authors. The long-term aim of the site is to include illustrated listings for a wide range of authors and series. At present SFandFantasy.co.uk includes illustrated bibliographies for Richard C. Meredith and The Venture Science Fiction series and book lists for Isaac Asimov, J.R.R. Tolkien and Philip E. High.


Go to SFandFantasy for more information.

It looks like this particular set was on sale from www.tolkienbookshelf.com for about £750 as the set are still listed on Beren's site.

Good luck to them if they can then get another £1100 from eBay.
