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.

But I'm not the one on here (remy! ) talking about how I'm struggling to keep up with Tolkien paperback publications! I'm keeping up with Silmarillion paperback publications just fine...

I hear what you're both saying; but, to be honest, with academic publications (& their respective content) I would have thought content is primarily what drives most buyers. People who write papers, attend conferences, perhaps teach Tolkien, etc (i.e. people who consume a huge amount of material about Tolkien) --do these people really care if they have, for example, a 5th printing of Tolkien's Legendarium? I'd say they don't --& given the choice they'd prefer not to have to pay £100 for a copy of the book, in preference for a cheaper digital version. Of course the reality is the digital version of, for example, WVUPress's Tolkien Studies, is the same price. But if it was cheaper, I don't think half the buyers of academic publications would care. Only book collectors care about this.

The secondary material you cite Urulöké, is just that; secondary. While I have no problem with people collecting it, the idea that a book a criticism should cost you more than a first edition of LR is absurd. This is currently what the market says these items are worth. For this reason alone I don't collect academic publications; they're way overpriced.

My point is: if you believe the content is important & worth reading (your point) --then this is not an argument for acquiring the content physically (I did say not worth "physically collecting"). Excepting vol. I, all the content is still available direct from WVUPress. Why does the format matter?
