Indeed, I was about to say: dorothy_house is quite an experienced eBayer, I doubt this went for less than £200. Someone presumably made a decent offer (above £200) & it was accepted privately.

Just to add: this was probably discussed on here years ago & I was trying to find the link. Here it is:

https://www.pcinvasion.com/incgamers-tolkien-ip-license

This explains how they all work quite closely together.

I don't understand; there's been console games based on Tolkien for decades. They all contain content that is totally made up. I've never read anywhere that The Tokien Estate had taken earlier companies to court, so what's changed recently? The Saul Zaentz Company (or whatever it's now called) holds the rights & licenses all of these games; it doesn't have anything directly to do with The Tolkien Estate, unless some material change has occured recently.

Publisher Unwin Hyman, later purchased by HarperCollins, publishes the 9,250-page manuscript of The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The Lord of the Rings trilogy, still published today by HarperCollins UK...


Unwin Hyman? It's a rather redacted (& inaccurate) timeline that doesn't mention George Allen & Unwin. It mentions acquiring Thomas Nelson in addition to numerous other diddy companies; but doesn't actually have an entry for its takeover of UH, and thus it's control of publishing Tolkien. Strange omission. Also no mention of acquiring Gollancz; another massive UK publisher in it's time.

Is this a surprising price?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/The-Homecom ... 253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

I think £101 for a 1990's reprint is a little steep...
