@Stu and @Berelach - I kind of agree with both of you. When a rare or uncommon item shows up and sells for a good price, that can definitely nudge other sellers to dig out their own copy and list as well. I don't think that happened here in this particular case though - I agree with Stu that we are probably just sensitized to the title having just sold a copy so recently. I do see these on the market every now and then, but definitely most copies are priced higher than I think they will find buyers at. Seeing two copies around the reasonable £100 price point is definitely unusual.

As an additional note - I tend not to use Foster/Tyler any more because I have been spending much time in the Reader's Guide and Reader's Companion volumes from Scull/Hammond. Well worth getting! Not exactly the same purpose, though.

For my personal copies (not the most recent editions), I much prefer Foster's guide, as every entry has page references to the original source. Tyler doesn't do that (again, in my copy - perhaps a more recent edition has added this).

[Edit: If helpful, you can "look inside" the Tyler volume for an idea of what it contains on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2jM1d0B ]

I tend not to use these references much any more. Either/both are good to have, though, in my opinion.

All I can add to the conversation is that the Wikipedia article & author have been referenced (with praise) by the article author Steven M. Frisby in Scull/Hammond's "The Tolkien Collector" issue #30, but I have not seen one of these orange bindings myself. I will keep digging to see if I can find out more.
