The picture really sells this book to me, you even get a chance to see it in larger size

Stu,

Bidding has ended on the first 'leather bound' set without being sold, no surprises there.

As I now know that you "kwon nuhting aobut Tolkein boks" then in future I might consider the very very very poor leather imitations on my not Book Club Guild Publishing books as real leather because she told you so.

At least the price is more reasonable than others.

The person with the "leather" books didn't like being advised that they weren't quite what they thought. It all went downhill from there... The amusing thing was that joyqueen1 posted my first email and reply to the Q&A section of the listing, which was a truly stupid thing to do. I can only assume that the person actually believes that these books aren't Book Club editions, despite the photos clearly showing "Book Club Associates" and "Guild Publishing". No accounting for the 95% of the population lower down the evolutionary ladder than myself, I guess... :)


Dear joyqueen1,

Hi,
Just wanted you to be are that these are Book Club Editions, and - most importantly - that they are not leather, but "leatherette"/plastic. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective), they usually sell for a few pounds.

Dear metapraxis02,

Sorry to tell you they are not BOOK Club Editions and the are Leather Bound.

Dear joyqueen1,

The pictures quite clearly show "By Arrangement with Guild Publishing", plus I am familiar with these editions. Guild (also known as BCA - Book Club Associates) is/was the Book Club that produced books by arrangement with GA&U. Makes no odds to me, but your listing is incorrect, and I thought you might like to know. Easier to hope you find a mug, eh?

Dear metapraxis02,

Hope u r a mug u plonker to busy putting your mug into anybodys eeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Dear joyqueen1,
