If this is the auction & seller you're referring to:-

J R R Tolkien The Peoples of Middle Earth Volume 12 - 1996 VERY RARE LOTR Hobbit

...then I think the seller is fairly reliable. Haven't dealt with them, but they seem to list Tolkien stuff honestly enough. However, that story sounds like piddle.

Your price estimate range is about right. I posted on current prices earlier this year. It's late tho', I can't be bothered finding it. I'll edit this tomorrow so you can read it. (Or, Trotter!?, edit this for me )

[This might be it, (but was posted three years ago) http://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/n ... ost_id=3373#forumpost3373 -Trotter]

Rubbish Trotter! This is it:-

I'm looking for #67, 111, 113, 167, & 176 --amazingly TS have none of these either! Although, I already new that. Funny all the same .

Hmmm... don't think I'm not thinking about it. But definitive is quite challenging. It don't think it can be done by looking at the books alone; by this method it would be more of an overview, with clearly stated limitations. I'd like to do some research down at some of the printers archives for a start; much in the way Deagol gathered information for some of his articles on his TolkienBooks (--there's a massive amount of work behind those articles.) I'll get round to it some day...

Trotter: the non-US, non-UK statement is implying, but not stating, that this is the "Canadian" edition i.e. those 1st editions destined for the export market; sellers always state this kind of nonsense. To be honest, I'm really sick of reading these sorts of listings --when are dealers going to stop assuming that Clowes printed books plus unpriced DJs equal "first state". This is not necessarily the case. Look for the errors, by all means, but don't just look for Clowes and prices. Bah!

I think we've mentioned this seller (1973lee1973) and this very item before. DM slipcase, was it not? And, as you say, seller makes no mention of this. Have a look at this sellers items once, and you'll notice them listed & relisted again & again. This has been up on eBay for years; I'm sure it's the same set.
