We should probably set up a tolkeinguide.com site & highlight everything in this thread as genuine good buys!

Scarey! Check this out:-

Solid Coffee Table (TOLKEIN connection? - read on)

"I was told by the shop that I ordered this from that the timber that this table is made from comes from TOLKEINS library.

Apparently the furniture maker bought the timber that came out of the library when it was stripped out.

I have no way of proving this, so make of it what you will! The shop would have no reason to randomly make this up though and has made an interesting talking point!
"

Interesting indeed. You know, I was introduced to someone, many years ago, who's grandfather had been to the same school as a boy, who's sister had read a book by Tolkien; or maybe about Tolkien; or maybe it was Jules Verne. I can't actually remember. Either way, this story has something to do with Tolkien, therefore it is very important.

Nerdy car indeed. Very nice it is Stu. On to more pressing matters...

The only historical eBay prices that I've noted are:-

Sept 2009 - £8 (~VG)
Aug 2009 - £32 (~VG)
Feb 2009 - £129 (~VG)
May 2008 - £41 (Stu's copy)

Don't see any earlier, but I probably wasn't too aware of the copy pre-2006.

Why (I'm just curious) do you all assume this is a real rarity, when the only basis for this view is market availablility? Yes, it doesn't seem to turn up that often --but does anyone actually know how many were printed? (Genuinely: does anyone?) If the print run was as for MR, or WotJ, or PoME --then there are many copies out there, and not that many people after them. This is not truly rare, just scarce to market.

Any bets another comes up really soon though; it always happens. (Although, with all this talk, it will probably go for more! )
