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! )

Agreed. The price for PoME makes little sense, at the higher range. At least prices are on the drop (--for those who don't have a copy.) Minus £50 would be £106 (ain't my maths good?) --I don't think I'd waste £106 on this either. Now £56, maybe.

Two sets!? You is a crazy man!

Seriously. What an unutterable pile of stinking piddle. £156!? Some people have far, far too much money & absolutely no brains --either that, or they have serious issues with self control: Gotta keep bidding!!! --even though I know we passed the "what it's actually worth" value about a week ago... Mental. Totally mental.

To put in context, as Stu states --you can pick up a copy of PoME for this price. (I just bought a LotRs, 1 volume, 1969 Deluxe India Paper Edition for £149!)

Well, it's their money I suppose.

There is a spelling mistake in this letter. It's also very sharp for a typed letter of 1973; it may just be the way it appears on the screen though.

garm: what is someone trying to do then, if not imitate a signature? I must confess, I don't really understand "signing" on another's behalf.
