Have put a link to this shameless plug in the Collector's Marketplace section of forum...

Beren should add this to his eBay letter list too! There's no such thing as "No returns accepted". EBay are governed by distance selling rules (or whatever it's called) like any other UK internet seller. My own experience is that sellers stating this are still made to give refunds by eBay if your case is reasonable in any case e.g. it was mis-described. But, I suppose your right Trotter, auctions stating this are to be avoided --you always have to question why the seller would state this.

& again...

I'm pretty sure, when you said you recognised this item, that this was The Hobbit being offered by flatsigned.com at the same time as that signed Silmarillion. The Silmarillion sold, but (since I didn't note the final price) maybe the 'signed' Hobbit failed to meet reserve or something. Much like the LotRs which was relisted multiple times by flatsigned.com.

(I know I already mentioned this to you bruffyboy...) While the HarperCollins J. R. R. Tolkien Collection is a nice slipcased collection, it is now not in it's first release format; if you care about this.

According to Beren, who I would think was informed by the publishers, only about 50 of the '1 of 500' actually had the original impression combination: all 1st impressions, LotRs 2nd impression. The remaining assembled sets (of 500) all had a 3rd impression of LotRs. Additionally these were all sold out (--which as I think about it, actually sounds quite unlikely, but...) The sets now on sale are more than likely another 500; only CoH and The Silmarillion are likely to be 1st impressions. The Hobbit is likely a 3rd imp. or later; LotRs 4th or 5th imp.

£140 was a very good deal at the time. Unfortunately most people probably had all the books anyway...
