Thanks for uploading the pictures. The book looks nice enough. The plastic case looks absolutely rubbish - I once had a mobile phone that came in throw-away packaging with an almost identical finish (to be fair, I still have the packaging - not the phone - in a kitchen cupboard with a load of loose recipes stuffed in it, so it was good packaging). I hate to be a complainer (yeah, right!), but it really is not a material to use for things you want to last. Cheap plastics rarely stand up well. It is not 'if the folded bits crack', it is 'when'. Do not read at low temperatures, I guess...

I'd be interested in seeing a photo of the book and slipcase, if you get a chance, Khamul. I'm guessing mine will be at least a couple of weeks away.

Nice. There may be some hope in it arriving in one piece, then. Mine got dispatched by Amazon today.

Trotter,

That's....... not acceptable. By any definition I can think of.


'Acceptable' is such a silly term for eBay to have forced on book buyers. What is acceptable to one person might be completely unacceptable to someone else. It really is meaningless. Reading between the lines, the term usually seems to be used to mean 'knackered'.

I'm pretty sure you could still buy this new from Tolkien.co.uk until fairly recently (I'm referring to the Alan Lee signed version limited to 500 copies with the different information sheet, but otherwise identical to the non-signed one). They took a LONG time to sell.

I can't image that anyone would ever pay $500 for it (but if anyone wants to, I have a spare one in a box )
