It may be a typo in the magazine, does seem a huge increase.

I thought members might like to see some information from the UK Book and Magazine Collector magazine, on Tolkien and their guesses at valuations on books.

I have picked some of Tolkien’s books to give the prices for from the first copy that I have, July 1985, to the latest copy December 2005.

I will list the copies below that I have, if anybody is aware of any other editions that concentrate on Tolkien or the Inklings, then please post them?

Magazines

1 #17 July 1985 J.R.R. Tolkien With Complete Bibliography
2 #57 December 1988 J.R.R. Tolkien Current Selling Prices Reviewed
3 #95 February 1992 J.R.R. Tolkien With Complete UK Bibliography
4 #214 January 2002 J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’
5 #238 January 2004 Tolkien Special
- His Life & Works
- Survey of Current Values
- Full Bibliography/Price Guide
- The Tolkien Society

6 #263 December 2005 The Inklings (no prices given)

Book Values (two prices for UK VG books, without dust jacket in brackets), the numbers refer to the magazines above and the prices are the maximum quoted in the magazine.

Probably not worth anything at all with pages missing.

"Please Note: pages 1057 to 1088 are missing in this copy. This is a binder's error, the pages were not removed and there is no evidence that they are gone until one does a close collation of the book."
