I don't think that Wayne & Christina will be pleased with this auction of "Artist & Illustrator"

Houghton Mifflin , First edition, book and jacket fine, read-once condition.


£569 and it's yours.

Well, I just have to say I'm jealous of all your finds at those prices. I still do not own that set.


I'm jealous as well, I do own this set, and my copies have good dust wrappers but badly foxed books.

I paid at least three times the best price so far. I do think they are a nice set to own though.

Seller has had 2 offers so far, hopefully around the £60-90 mark

Oh dear, competition authority is now getting involved.

It looks like anyone can express their views on this, not just UK nationals. I'll be sending them an email as I prefer having more competition to less.

Another article on this from theregister.

Perhaps recognizing the importance of the brand, the 900-pound gorilla has faithfully promised that it’s not going to squash The Book Depository brand. Customer disquiet has also led The Book Depository to reassure people that it will continue to operate independently.

****NEW**** TolkienBooks.net now has a sister site - SFandFantasy.co.uk - a collection of bibliographies listing books by Science Fiction and Fantasy authors. The long-term aim of the site is to include illustrated listings for a wide range of authors and series. At present SFandFantasy.co.uk includes illustrated bibliographies for Richard C. Meredith and The Venture Science Fiction series and book lists for Isaac Asimov, J.R.R. Tolkien and Philip E. High.


Go to SFandFantasy for more information.
