The 2002 edition was £7.99 and at least three impressions were issued, so as Stu said this is a pretty common book, I would not advise paying $400 for it, $15 would seem to be about right.

Appears to have found some idiots who think it is the 1996 edition, though the seller has advertised it correctly

"Print-on-demand copy of History of Middle Earth Volume 12 -The Peoples of Middle-Earth.
Identical to the original 1996 hardback edition making it a good way to fill out a collection. Retail price is £40.
Practically perfect condition - looks new.
"

"A fool and his money" springs to mind.

Update, sold for £72, when you can buy the book for £40 from http://www.tolkien.co.uk/product/9780 ... +Peoples+of+Middle-earth+

HarperCollins should probably start selling POD books on ebay.

I have both, there is not a list of illustrations in the Complete Guide, so it is quite hard to say which are the same, without comparing both books.

The Complete Guide does include a chapter by Ted on illustrating this edition, which is also of interest.

A few people on the site may have supported this, but it is a youtube series from the people that made "Born of Hope". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qINwCRM8acM

It is available to watch for free in about 28 days time, for more info see the website.

eBay Item #331762944741

Here is an odd item. The postcard found at the back of fireplace. Ok it is addressed to Tolkien and no doubt he handled it but is it worth more than a nominal amount? Not for me but maybe others think differently?


So either Edith or Ronald read it, and it was lost behind the fireplace. I would value it at about 50 pence, I assume that is what he is asking :)

He wants £795 for it, what a Numpty

The seller thinks it is Lin Carter who sent it, but no provenance is supplied for that suggestion, and I think there were a lot of people in 1960's, whose first name was Lin.
