Clearly we have nothing better to be doing on a Saturday evening than suggesting to Bruffyboy what he should spend his money on! Now, I'm sure I had a life... where did I put it...

- but ignore the obvious false entries!

I'm not having a go at Rene, I'm just taking this as an example as Beren specifically brought it up. I just don't think this is any way for any seller to treat any buyer in any market.

Oh well; seems I'm not up on prices these days, so take no notice of me - but you do need a copy of Poems and Stories anyway, for whatever price you can get it.

As for a LotR 2nd ed. 1st imp - I saw a set today in Oxford for £150.00 which I thought was a bit dear, esp. since I bought a lovely 1965 1st ed. set from the same shop last year which was priced at £130, but he took off 10% for cash.

Your pretty safe with Hobbit's & LotRs. £100 is not a bad amount to have to spend. You'll not get early editions of these in F/F or anything, but you'll pick up some nice copies that you'll enjoy owning I think...
