Here's something odd...
eBay Item #181890468346

A "custom" slipcase for The Silmarillion and BoLTs... that doesn't fit, being too tall. Strange.

I usually find dogfark's listings mildly irritating, but that really is borderline dishonest. I have to say, it's genuinely quite disappointing to see this kind of thing.

Why do people say these things?
eBay Item #262069651192

I am selling off this complete collection of Tolkien Limited Editions. I have never seen this offered as a set before.
No, you wouldn't have. Nobody would have seen these seven books sold as a set before... as nobody would take six matching HC deluxe editions & tag a US CoH with them. Why would any prospective buyer want this edition included?

I paid around $700 for each book.
Oh dear...

eBay seller leemingrj ("The Road Goes Ever On Tolkien & Swann Song Cycle" listing):
First published 1968. Second impression 1969.
I am not a dealer, just downsizing in my ninth decade to make it easier for my executors.
Starting at a reasonable price so happy bidding.

I'm not in any way connected with this seller...

... but I was genuinely surprised at this going for £100 with only one bidder:
eBay Item #281789516392
The bidder was me!

Received the book today & it's in great shape. Book is "Fine", with pages still clinging together from having not been opened/browsed. Slipcase a little handled but nothing significant. All-in-all a decent price I thought. The seller also had vol. III up for the same price that failed to sell with no bidders. Now re-listed with £79.99 starting price:
eBay Item #281797819264
I'd suggest a pretty decent price for anyone still searching for one of these.
