Hi Beren,

Are you sure it was a 1st/1st Fellowship? Cannot find the auction in the completed listings. Cannot imagine a 1st/1st Fellowship selling for anywhere close to £100 (or close to £500 for that matter).

I saw a Worn (and poorly advertised) 1st/1st ROTK go for just over £100 alright.

Ebay seems to be a little quieter in general and prices have come down somewhat. But as always, the quality and rare editions still seem to sell very well.

Thanks guys, that's ringing bells now - the facsimile Amazon refers to is just the dustjacket art from what I can remember, not the text. I'll dig through Beyond Bree and a few other sources for additional confirmation.

I updated the banner link, working again now.

I've gotten burned by the case sensitivity too - rowns.com file uploads are case sensitive, and the web interface automatically changes everything to lower case. That caused a few headaches until I switched to a great ftp client - Bulletproof FTP - that lets me schedule uploads, picks up broken transfers where they left off, remote file rights management, everything. The perfect tool for hosting my websites on remote servers.

I've had the same issue with eBay - I get dozens of emails a day from them (auto notifications for new listings of various types) and recently deleted many hundreds of them as out of date and unread. Just too busy with other things, recently.

I happened to order this from Amazon (adveristed as the 70th Anniversary Hardcover), but received a regular reprint of the 1995 Edition (duly returned). Not sure if it actually exists at all yet in Hardcover.
