Hello
Try abebboks.co.uk - they have sets starting from £75
Found one on ebay item number 140370330092 - £109 This seems a little expensive to me - maybe worth contacting the seller or waiting a few weeks until more appear. They are regular on ebay - i'd aim for at least half ish of prices above. Good luck

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone can help me. I am after an individual book from the Millenium Edition Collection, but I have been unable to locate it. I am awaiting a response from HarperCollins UK. Does anyone have any other ideas where to look. I have been on the net all day using different search descriptions without any luck.

Thanks

For all those interested, here is how to report an item on eBay. I imagine if enough of us report these letters, hopefully something will be done.

The only question that remains is which category do these items fall under. I'm thinking perhaps "Fraudulent listings." What do you guys think?

mmmmmm
Having taken another look it appears that classic art had item listed then removed it (suggest sold item to cavorite privately). Then less than a month later cavorite is trying to resell?

Its odd how a number of these fakes come back to classic art ?
As mentioned before almost every one of his books/art work are signed. That in itself is very odd indeed. A seller to be avoided at all costs i feel. I see the fleming letter is already at £600+ !!!!!!!

By an amazing coincidence to my mind the two worst eBay culprits for fake letters and signatures are both selling the same fake letter.

cavorite51 fake
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Letter-Signed-b ... tible?hash=item2eaa2d3875

classic_art_uk fake
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/A-TOLKIEN-SIGNE ... tible?hash=item439c045ad6

It also looks like Higgins has turned into Mrs Wilding as we now have two very bad fake letters to her as well.

I just noticed this as well, nothing to do with Tolkien (like all these letters really), but probably by the same individual as above.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/IAN-FLEMING-SIG ... tible?hash=item439c3c0fcd

The address is not overly helpful in the letter, I don't know how anyone could deliver to that address as it is too vague, but if you look at the bottom of the letter, the phone number is really strange (Telephone Terminus 1234). Terminus is the end of the line, usually a bus garage or railway station not someone's house.
