It is because of the depression that the demand for the truly unique items has only increased! Surely the market of scarce book is slow and almost completely sleeping, but at the top there is a lot going on. Sadly for most collectors this trade is completely done outside the open market. I'll have to somehow list some of the treasures that have switched hands in the last months and you will be surprised to see how well the Tolkien market is actually doing on the high end collectors market.

Does anyone (Beren?) know the difference between the standard and deluxe editions of the forthcoming "A Tolkien Tapestry"?

Thanks

Because most countries are an a depression at the moment and book prices are being hit, they are not essential purchases.

Also we have not seen any details of condition of this item (it would have to be in immaculate condition to get these prices) or anything related to provenance as yet.

It seems the best approach is to ignore this website, thanks for the info

I have seen the Ringers film and garm's review is spot on, awful and to be avoided.

I believe this value to be correct and having sold several (similar) books in the last 6 months I can tell you this is an accurate estimate! Inflation by one Swiss purchaser had nothing to do with that... There is a high demand and VERY FEW signed copies available, by the way in this condition it is extremely RARE! Why are you so surprised?

I can find at least 4 persons who will buy this book right away at this estimate!
