Indeed. I think he meant to write "Library Stamps torn out". That said, it sounds like he is just clueless/confused.

The auction detail wasn't amazing. I'm surprised, given that, that it was snapped up for £100, to be honest. Still, it's quite uncommon.

It is definitely uncommon. I think 100 pounds isn't terrible, but isn't a huge bargain, either. I have absolutely no doubt that the prices for all these relatively recent books have been slowly dropping. That said, I wouldn't be surprised to see one of the Tolkien dealers offering it up for several hundred pounds in a few weeks, as that is how it seems to work!

I think that - at least in the "New World", the Encore "state" is definitely more common. I thought about buying this copy, but then I only paid $25 Australian (15 pounds) for my Encore set (without a single other bidder), so it is hard to justify spending close on 8 times that to get a slightly different texture on an imperfect slipcase. Sadly, I don't have the bank account to be a completetist, these days.

I've seen another (Encore) set listed since I got mine that re-listed 3 or 4 times, starting at $250 AU, dropping to $150 (if memory serves me), and it didn't sell. Three or four years ago it would have been snapped up.

This is the non-Encore set by the looks of it.

Silmarillion Salesman's dummy. More than I would want to pay, but might be of interest to someone (looks to be in very nice condition)...

Madness. Especially as it isn't even a real hardback, but instead the cheapest bit of tat that HarperCollins could churn out.
