I just don't get it. If it was two bidders getting caught up, sure, but there are 10 bidders or more (last I looked) all getting into it. All five books I can find online for at most $10 for the set of five. What am I missing?

There is a DVD (NTSC Region 2, Japan) for this now on eBay. If you have a regionless player, this might be interesting.

Yes, it is perfect bound. I don't have my copy in front of me to verify, but I know Walking Tree was leaning towards all POD books last time I talked with them (Print on Demand, so there is no concept of impressions - everything is a first edition until they make textual changes.) They were still occasionally doing traditional print runs on certain titles around 2006 (last time I talked with them about this) so it is possible this isn't POD, but I think it is.

The page count seems high (it wasn't that thick of a book). I'll confirm my copy in a few hours when I am at home. The publisher's website doesn't list the page count.

Thanks to Jason Fisher for finding this and passing it on...

Tolkien Studies volumes 3 and 4 are currently on sale at Amazon.com (which doesn't happen often for journals like this one) so if you need a copy, now is a good time. These list for $60 each.

Having Carol sign/sketch in your copies of LT I and II will certainly set them apart a bit from the rest of the copies, but I don't think it adds significantly to the value of the books. Mostly because Carol hasn't done any other Tolkien illustrations that I know of, she was commissioned by Easton Press specifically for these - so she isn't well known or sought after in the Tolkien collecting circles (yet).

You can check out her website at http://www.carolheyer.com

On a side note, I have been talking with Easton Press and the Guide is fairly heavily updated already - I am working on a summary article to post in the news section with some comments and other interesting tidbits, hopefully this weekend or early next week.
