"VG" can mean different things to different people. Other factors bringing the price down might include: the price being clipped; just a poorer (i.e. VG-) jacket generally; or perhaps the top page edge a little faded. Those points aside, your copy is a 2nd impression --and this devalues it (in comparison to a 1st edition/1st impression) more than anything. £10 perhaps? HoME books, in general, aren't really selling that well I don't think.

I think if anyone wants any of this stuff the seller is pretty willing to sell; I have his email address if anyone wants to contact him privately. I actually advised him to list most of it here on TolkienGuide, if he couldn't be bothered with eBay. But he's (as stated) split the original lot into smaller lots; whether this will help shift the stuff, I don't know. I'm not sure if this is just the tip of the iceberg, or as good as it gets. He doesn't seem to have a list of everything he wants to sell as yet.

Now now Trotter, you'd be showing off too if you had a first edition of the 2nd printing! Did that come after the second edition of the first printing?

My internet connection is crawling so I didn't look at any of the pictures properly. All I noted was the book count: 360. Think he might want to get a few more of those book things. Tolkien was an academic & a writer. Although, he may have made a few swords & the like; I don't recall...

It's not really my spare --& I think it has some unsightly writing inside; names, signatures, doodles etc. But, if it's quite good --I'll get back to you. The recipient certainly doesn't need two!
