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...

Khamul wrote just now -

No, I don't think you're over-reacting. I wasn't too happy with this comment, either. I had thought about contacting Rene to see what his bottom price would be but, (saving yer honour's presence, Rene), in my experience Rene tends to be a bit immovable when it comes to asking price. Which is his right, of course.

I'd have liked to have bought one of Cor Blok's paintings because they are rare, and they have a certain style. But in the end, I decided against purchasing this example, or making an offer for it, at least partly because it was (to my mind) overpriced . I'm dismayed to see that both Beren, and Rene himself, felt the same way.
