For that sort of condition, £58.00 doesn't sound outrageous to me.

BTW - this was my first set of LotR. I paid around £11.00 for my set in 1976. Bearing in mind my take-home pay at that time, it seemed a lot of money!

I'm with your wife on this one; personally I wouldn't buy a mis-bound copy; but that's just me.

On the other hand, I recently bought a one-volume de luxe Lee LotR, and was dismayed to find that it has a misprint - that is, a blank leaf where one of the illustrations ought to be. For a while i was torn between sending it back (tho' I didn't find the fault until some time after I bought it) and holding on to it because it was a very good price. The vendor hadn't mentioned it, and I don't suppose he knew anything about it. So, I still have the book. I'm hoping to catch up with Alan Lee again one day; and ask him to 'personalize' it, with an inscription on that page, or even a sketch - even if it's only a 'What! No Pic?' sort of 'Kilroy was Here' type picture.

Hi everyone,
As I am buying almost weekly at the moment, I thought I may as well suggest here that I can put some money in people's pockets if they are interested. As many of you know, I collect slipcased editions of Tolkien books - if you have anything for sale then please send me a private message or email me at abruff@live.co.uk

All books considered, although the things I am realling interested in at the moment are the hardback books on this page: http://tolkienbooks.net/html/lotr-sc-3-hc.htm particularly the harper collins 1991 (red box not grey box) and illustrated 1992, plus the deluxe folio editions.

In terms of prices, I am happy and willing to pay realistic value prices - see my blog http://collectingtolkien.blogspot.com/ for an idea of the prices I have been paying up to this point.

Thanks

Andrew

Cheers remy. I was aware of that one.
