Here is an interesting one, books wrapped in cling film (Plastic Wrap for some readers).

My view is that it provides zero protection as it is very easy to rip, but also because it bunches up, blurs the Dust Jacket.

Now, now Qweniden --don't be too impatient; we're just not the fastest moving forum out there...

I don't know the answer (personally) to your question. Most of the books/items I do have were, in reality, fairly easy to get hold off --I've still to get all the hard stuff. I think the reality is, unless you take into account other factors (as you state) like condition, most Tolkien is fairly common; real rarities are quite uncommon I would suggest. But, like you, a few items haven't really come up in the condition I'd like; or at least not for the price I'd like to match!

What book/set in your collection was the hardest to obtain?

For me, its probablly the Ballantine Paperback Reprint Edition from 1986 and 1987

Open in new window


While I have much rarer books in my collection they were easy to get. It was strangly hard for me to find a collectable copy of this set with a good box and no cracked spines.

How about you? What was a challange for you to find?

Ah, then clearly Pauline did cross the Atlantic in her later years. I never knew that.
