Clearly we have nothing better to be doing on a Saturday evening than suggesting to Bruffyboy what he should spend his money on! Now, I'm sure I had a life... where did I put it...

I'm not having a go at Rene, I'm just taking this as an example as Beren specifically brought it up. I just don't think this is any way for any seller to treat any buyer in any market.

Your pretty safe with Hobbit's & LotRs. £100 is not a bad amount to have to spend. You'll not get early editions of these in F/F or anything, but you'll pick up some nice copies that you'll enjoy owning I think...

Not for that price you don't!

What about an early impression of The Hobbit, if you can find one. You could probably get a 2nd edition from the 60's in decent condition for under £100 no problem. Or try & pick up a LotRs 2nd/1st set?

Yip. There was a 1972 deluxe 2nd imp. up on eBay, opening at £59 or something. Oxfam it was. Think they would happily take £100! Get something old...
