...there is also a random element in the final sale price that defies all logic and explanation.

Ebay! That's the explanation . All tho' for really illogical unexplanable prices just consult the acclaimed online marketplace (with more than 110 million books listed!) Abebooks!; otherwise known as Amazon; who also own Bookfinder... you will find all sorts of unreasonably priced titles, which bare no relation to rarity, scarcity, or instrinsic value etc. There you'll find UK HoME sets for $136000 and the like.

...a complete set of new, or Virtually new, Hardback Histories of Middle-Earth, Volumes 1-12 with dustjacket...

Are you interested in impression status? Priced/Unpriced DJ's? Would you accept book club copies?; HarperCollins reprints?; UK or US set? etc etc

Also, I think if your going to start 'collecting' books, and increased interest in dustjackets is paramount. (If your not interested in a set with DJ's [and want copies for their content only], then perhaps you'd be cheaper buying a complete paperback set? -or both! )

It's been a little quiet Eric the Red; so be patient if response is slow to your post. Welcome to TCG!

(Jeniveve) Book collectors simply think carefully before answering; I think...

Seller has subsequently re-listed (despite Beren[?] contacted him); buy-it-now £275...

Not a very good drawing I admit, but I was told he did 6-7 of these in a row quickly thus allowances should be made. I'll be happy to show the buyer around a dozen pictures if similar Alan Lee sketches in signed copies (several the same as this one) if you have any concerns about the authenticity.

Alan Lee Drawing

Any thoughts on the sale (or AL's drawing...)?
