Incidently (just for information) -the original box set under discussion does indeed have a re-priced 4th impression of The Silmarillion. Looks like there is one taker at £400 in the auction as well!

But then you'd have the problem of damp; and moisture is the enemy of all books! Altho' you might find more square foot for your money...

Indeed! You must be pretty chuffed with that Beren? Its good to here about TV-makers, publishers, and the Estate working with the collecting community. And, if people are seaking you out, for help in regards to Tolkien books; well, that must be satisfying (exciting even!) indeed. The Collier Collection grows in prominence with every passing day...

(Didn't actually see programme unfortunately; can't get BBC4 reception. Might still be on iPlayer...)

Something else (I find) quite interesting is the mention of the (possibly) re-priced 4th impression of The Silmarillion. I know Deagol lists this as including either a 4th or 5th impression, but I'd be interested in hearing from anyone with this set (Deagol, Beren...) what copy of The Silmarillion their set includes, and whether the printed price has indeed been re-priced or not? And, if so, what is the nature of this re-pricing: price sticker, colour, 'GA&U' etc etc

As for the value: I have a note of one being sold (on eBay) in February 2007 for £475. If I remember correctly the opening price was similarly high, and I think the winning bidder was one of only a few bidders; perhaps the only one. So I think it might go for this price...
