Thanks Trotter!

Is this a typo (extra zero on #5)?

Just pricey tatty junk.

Seriously, though, book collecting is definitely an odd business. As my wife says, "well, I guess it's better than a lot of other hobbies you could have!"

I updated my previous post on the LOTR set with reproduction dustjackets, but to reiterate what I said there, here:

I was hasty in my reaction which was primarily to the pictures - the discontinuity between the repro jackets and the books underneath. I did not notice that these are all first impression books, which (in any condition) would certainly have value to collectors well above what the repro jackets cost.

To be clear, I have no problem having beat up copies of Tolkien's works on my shelves - in fact I do, for many titles and editions! I don't personally like having pristine reproduction dustjackets hiding the books, is all. I feel the same way about rebindings.
