Ebay can come up trumps as well on mad prices.

UPDATE

The book was listed at £999 when I posted the link, but has now gone to £9.99

It depends on which copy of the map you have, 50 copies of the map were printed for Allen & Unwin staff and they have a 'privately printed' label on them. 7500 were also printed on Cartridge paper and then an unknown quantity on glossy paper. (From J.R.R. Tolkien: A Descriptive Bibliography (page 376) by Wayne G.Hammond and Douglas A.Anderson).

The most valuable copies are the privately printed copies, some of which were signed by Tolkien and/or Pauline Baynes. Abebooks has an example of an unsigned copy for over a £1000. If you have the non-glossy poster then these are much more common, and the glossy posters are even more common. Having said that these posters do not often appear on Ebay so you may be able to get £30-£50 for it.

I noticed on Tolkien Forums that another person ordered the signed edition of the book, but was actually sent the unsigned version.

What about if the author was quite happy for you to do this?

'If you would like a signature for "The Lord of the Rings" you can stick this in with my good wishes.

J.R.R. Tolkien 20/6/73"

As an aside does anyone know who this frequently copied letter was originally sent to, as I have a copy and it would be very interesting to know.

Happy Xmas.

Andrew
