Laurel I have lost out on some great offers including a 1963 deluxe LOTR set for £400 only last year because i messed around.


I would have been extremely annoyed if that set had gone for £400, unless he sold it to me. As the eventual buyer of the copy in question, it cost considerably more than £400 when bidding finished on eBay.

Trotter, which Tolkien interview does that BBC programme contain?


Both of these programmes are really "Tolkien in Oxford" from 1968,

'If you want an investment, buy gold' - bit harsh there.


It's true though. I collect books because I like them not for value or an investment.

I don't think you can seriously class collecting Tolkien books as a great investment.

Ordered this book, one year ago from Amazon and it arrived today

It is good to finally get all three of the new editions of John Howe's maps with Brian Sibley's commentary.

No, if I see something I like and it's not in a slipcase, I will buy one right away for it!

I think that was garm's original point, which I completely agree with
