I agree with Totter that the RU LR is a nice set. But, again, £300 (--or even near this price)!? This is quite a bit above market value. Jacketed sets aren't even going for £200.

You need to aim much higher!

Agreed, I paid 125(isn) for my jacketed set of RU last year (or maybe the year before -- can't remember). I would have thought decent condition with reasonable condition jackets should be no more than 100-150, to be honest, depending on the condition.

And I notice that the 3 sold were for 125 quid. A cynical observer might think they were trying to catch out the unwary by getting a few sales under the belt and jacking the price. You would have to be pretty dumb, though...

Having learned that "Tolkien Studies" vol. VI is now out-of-print, and further having a nephew that wants to go to robotics camp this summer, I've decided to list my spare copy of TS VI on eBay to cover the cost. So, if anyone here is looking for a copy, please bid here. Thanks!

So your nephew gets turned into a robot for $75 - $200? Sounds like a good deal. If I had a nephew, I'd want him turned into a robot that could stock the fridge and fetch beer from it without complaining.

Good luck with the sale.

Why would a seller continue to use photographs of items similar to merchandise they reportedly have in their possession? Why not use the originals? One cannot help but suspect the seller is simply fishing for high bids on items they know they can then purchase for less elsewhere.

It's an Alan-53 Auction. He always lists things with pictures of different items. Wouldn't touch one of his auctions with a ten foot pole.

I will make inquiries with HarperCollins, I like the book covers


Good Man!

I agree that they look nice - I just have to pretend that I haven't seen the words "Film Tie In" anywhere as I very specifically don't collect any of the books with movie covers (as they have all previously looked horrible).

With these new ones, I'd definitely like them with the DJ if they do produce any.
