I don't see anyone actually giving Rohansgirl any prices here.

As as been discussed many times before, Abebooks is hardly a reliable guide to what price a private seller might be likely to achieve; no slight on D.M. over at The Tolkien Bookshelf --for a start ABE sellers are paying 13.5% commission.

Regarding LotRs, 3rd & 4th impressions pretty much go for original RRP (£100) on eBay, or, more commonly, for less. The only reason they go higher, I think, is because buyers don't know what impression they are. 1st & 2nd impressions are, admittedly, less common. Here's prices I've noted:-

February 2011 £130 "as new" [1st imp.]
May 2010 £160 [1st imp.]
That's all I've noted going back to Dec. 2009.

Regarding H, again this edition (Hatchards) is fairly infrequently auctioned on eBay.

March 2010 £268 [#143]
February 2010 £321 [#285]
I haven't noted any others, again going back to Dec. 2009. I can't be bothered looking back any further.

So, I'd say no more than £200 for LotRs, and probably around £300-£350 for the Hatchards H.

I'm guessing most people who want this book have bought it. But for those who haven't, and don't care (within reason) about the condition of their paperbacks (where a nice hardback precedes it), I have a sort-of spare copy that I'm wanting rid of.

PM me if interested in a "like new" copy for negotiable price. (I can throw in a signed bookplate too.)

Indeed. See when you think about it --why would you bother buying the new POD copies?, when you can pick up the older ones (particularly non-1st editions) for so cheap; or at least most of them.

I hadn't read the auction (or catalogue) in much detail, just your mention of guns. I thought --what's garm rambling on about!

One of your 4th impressions!? Who needs one, when you can have two; and a 2nd imp.! For those of us who didn't buy books back in the 70's ( ) --yes, they are expensive. That's why I don't own one...
