It's not really my spare --& I think it has some unsightly writing inside; names, signatures, doodles etc. But, if it's quite good --I'll get back to you. The recipient certainly doesn't need two!

I'm actually starting to find it a bit depressing; anything even slightly appealing to collectors is going for hundreds --mostly, I guess, to bookdealers. And some books, that you just want to read (like Rayner's Remembrancer), are going for more money than I'm likely to spend on any book ever! Other more desirable editions are just totally unaffordable, & I don't think I'll ever be able to acquire these books. Which, purely from a research point of view (if that's not too grand a term for examining these books), is really annoying.

laurel, I eventually got a fairly decent (probably VG/VG-) set for £80; which is alright I suppose. Just couldn't locate an affordable copy of FR on its own.

Yes, I see it on his blog now --the Alan Lee set. Yes, very nice. Purely from a personal point of view, this is the sort of set which I really don't think is worth the £600 Bruffyboy paid for it; never mind the higher prices he suggests it's 'worth'. But, everyone to their own --if one wants to pay hundreds (or into the thousands) for books produced by HarperCollins in the 90's, fair enough. Just seems too much...

BruffyBoy, any nice copies of The Silmarillion? --I don't recall if you bought any real gems, or not.
