I also thought the valuation was on the low side, if she wanted to insure the book then it should be £5,000 to £6,000 for her book. It was a nice copy of the book, the only problem was the full page inscription, though without that being there she would have lost the book completely.

Looks ok to me too, but that certainly also looks to me above the 'going rate' for studies. Still, for what is a unique piece, what does a 'going rate' signify?

But the title is misspelled by the seller.

Well, the cover is in the link to Amazon. And the entry there is a usual Amazon hotchpotch. The cover says "60th anniversary edition", the review says 50th anniversary edition, the detailed data give the 1999 date of the 50th anniversary edition. The title is non-committal and has a typo (probably made by someone who could not read black letter).

I'm not doubting Beren, but Amazon's descriptions do not inspire me with any confidence in their accuracy.

Also, Amazon indicates the book as 'in stock', while at the same time HC website is totally silent about it. Not very likely.

...& with Amazon owning ABEbooks as well; and Beren in league with HarperCollins! -there's nowhere for the poor (average) collector to turn to for unbiased advice...
