I'm jealous of your 1963 set, garm.

Good Grief - and have you seen who's selling it? A Tolkien specialist... I wonder where that price comes from? (mine's signed, BTW)

edit: I bought my Readers Union set ages ago; at one of the Bloomsbury bookfairs, IIRC. I think it cost around £45.00. The books are VG+; as is the RK jacket. The other two jackests have minor wear; all are unclipped.

I think I also got my 1963 buckram deluxe set in the Pauline Baynes box at the same time, for around the same price. The books and the box are in VG condition; similar to those found on Deagol's site.

I don't think that Wayne & Christina will be pleased with this auction of "Artist & Illustrator"

Houghton Mifflin , First edition, book and jacket fine, read-once condition.


£569 and it's yours.

I'm jealous as well, I do own this set, and my copies have good dust wrappers but badly foxed books.

I paid at least three times the best price so far. I do think they are a nice set to own though.

Seller has had 2 offers so far, hopefully around the £60-90 mark

Oh dear, competition authority is now getting involved.

It looks like anyone can express their views on this, not just UK nationals. I'll be sending them an email as I prefer having more competition to less.
