If you can find a blethering idiot, they are worth one thousand pounds. Otherwise, about 30 quid...

Has anyone else noticed this pattern? Whenever something uncommon comes up for sale, maybe something that hasn't been seen offered for a year or more... inevitably another comes up for sale shortly after. I've seen this happen more times than I can count.



Not sure if it just an illusion as I tend to be more aware of the second copy because I've been drawn to the first one. I suspect when a book sells for a good price (for seller), that does draw out other sellers.

With this title, it doesn't seem to be in short supply, it is just that some of the copies are overpriced, given that it is probably of very limited interest, so the elevated price is only going to be driven by the Tolkien connection. £100 is probably fair value, realistically.

Yeah, they certainly don't look bad at all -- just not quite the same styling as the spines of the deluxe.
