I recently found another picture of Tolkien and his grandson (Simon) that I had not seen before from a BBC News article.

Here is the Bilbo poster, which Mark Faith (dogfark) is selling on eBay. I'm sure that Mark would have no problems with the image being used on this site.

As someone who uses the London Underground everyday I was quite impressed with this tube map of Middle-Earth.

I'd like to think that Stu's excellent 100% correct valuation had something to do with the removal. Fantastic

Hi, I assume you are referring to the horrible cut-and-paste nightmare of a book listed on eBay. Fortunately it is very easy to give an accurate value for this one: Zero. The handy thing about this value is that it applies in any currency :) Cheers Stu

"Paul Barrett, a minibus hire firm boss from Stanley, County Durham, has been convicted of bidding against items he was selling on eBay in order to drive up final prices.

Barrett, 39, was found guilty of ten offences under consumer protection laws passed in 2008 and 2009 to bring UK law up to European Union standards. He pleaded guilty and said he did not realise bidding against himself was illegal.

Each offence could earn Barrett a fine of up to £5,000. He will be sentenced later.

North Yorkshire Trading Standards began investigating after he sold a minibus which had had its mileage reduced illegally. They found he was selling goods using the name "shanconpaul" and then bidding up prices using the name "paulthebusman".

eBay welcomed the conviction and said it spends over £6m a year on countering fraud on the site."

I wish some of this £6m was used on some of the persistent offenders known to this site.
