You calling me crazy?!

It's definitely five copies; but whether they are all strictly review copies, I'm not sure. One is (I'm sure you possibly saw it listed on eBay; it was up for months) a Clowes "export" edition with a small folded piece of card over the ffep; card is by Methuen & has details of the price & publication date. I'm guessing it was probably presented like this for review, but possibly not.

But it is just a run of the mill first edition! Just happens to include a little piece of paper...

No, I understand, it's quite an interesting copy. I have about four or five Silmarillion review copies. They didn't require anywhere near this kind of money to acquire though. Two of them were from the reviewers who had originally been sent them. They are fun to have & collect; I just thought this was a little steep.

To be honest I think this belongs in the "Wonders" thread:
eBay Item #291069254591

I know it's a review copy, but £215 is crazy money for a 1st/1st with a piece of paper laid in. Interesting, yes; worth this much?, I don't (personally) think so.

Anyone here win it?

Condition description from an Amazon seller:

Collectible - Like New

An apparently unread copy in perfect condition from my personal collection. Cover is intact with no nicks or tears. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds of any kind.


Someone with a good working knowledge of their own "collection" I see...

I have the Ted Smart set (with HarperCollins books: 7th, 7th, 4th imp.) in decent condition (box has a few split edges) --you're perfectly welcome to it. I'm in the UK.

PM to discuss if you want.
