Why do you even need to cancel the order Trotter? I usually just go through the Ask Bookseller a Question & approach seller that way. ABE cut is still 13.5% I think; I'm sure someone can confirm. That aside, if an item has been up on ABE or AMAZON for years, why shouldn't you approach the seller about negotiating a lower price? I can't remember the last time I paid the listed price for an ABE item.

Red, not the same set though, I don't think; latter listed set has slightly more sun-damaged RK dj spine, and mark to TT dj spine. They probably just listed it after seeing that other price! I'd be amazed if it went for more...

Again, am I missing something? I know it's a nice set, but £600+?

Seriously, would you swap? --or are you holding out for RK? I've got some Tolkien criticism that I've read (& I'm not sure if I still have room for) & some I've never got round to reading. Not likely, but you might be interested. e.g. Tolkien's Legendarium (Flieger & Hostetter) and Alex Lewis & Elizabeth Currie's (Ruth Lacon) The Uncharted Realms of Tolkien & The Forsaken Realm of Tolkien (both signed) --that sort of thing...
