Your pretty safe with Hobbit's & LotRs. £100 is not a bad amount to have to spend. You'll not get early editions of these in F/F or anything, but you'll pick up some nice copies that you'll enjoy owning I think...

Khamul wrote just now -

"Maybe I’m over reacting slightly to this (casual?) comment. Does nobody else think that this is wrong? "

No, I don't think you're over-reacting. I wasn't too happy with this comment, either. I had thought about contacting Rene to see what his bottom price would be but, (saving yer honour's presence, Rene), in my experience Rene tends to be a bit immovable when it comes to asking price. Which is his right, of course.

I'd have liked to have bought one of Cor Blok's paintings because they are rare, and they have a certain style. But in the end, I decided against purchasing this example, or making an offer for it, at least partly because it was (to my mind) overpriced . I'm dismayed to see that both Beren, and Rene himself, felt the same way.

Poems and stories went unsold for £30 the other day, so Im not paying £100 for it!

Old stuff does appeal to me, but the question is what to go for first!

Not for that price you don't!

What about an early impression of The Hobbit, if you can find one. You could probably get a 2nd edition from the 60's in decent condition for under £100 no problem. Or try & pick up a LotRs 2nd/1st set?
