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.

It looks like this particular set was on sale from www.tolkienbookshelf.com for about £750 as the set are still listed on Beren's site.

Good luck to them if they can then get another £1100 from eBay.

Bargain price £1800 for a very, very, very rare set of books (only 2979 sets sold)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/J-R-R-TOLKI ... m415b4e1040#ht_1742wt_922




I think the pictures and blurb may have been stolen from the tolkienbookshelf.com, as it also includes the incorrect assumption that Tolkien drew the illustration on the dust wrapper.
