I always ask artists, authors etc to sign to me - it makes it more personal. I don't much care if it does knock down the resale price - I don't intend to be the one selling them!

I paid £150 for the three-volume set, years ago - and £250 or thereabouts (just last year) for my one-vol. (which I found out, weeks later to have a printing fault... grrrr...)

Good point Remy and i know what you mean. I guess it means more to original owner. I havent got this all in one edition but have got the the 3 vol set which is fantastic. Maybe having both is greedy although once you have the bug you just have to have it ! ;)

With regards to the one vol edition, I liked the book and would probably have bid but for the fact that it was a personal dedication rather than a flat sign which ruined it for me. Don't think I would ever have felt that the book belonged to me looking at the personal inscription.

The 3 Vol edition is (most of the time) my favourite edition of the lord of the rings.
