From the Festival Art and Books website:


Returns accepted within 7 days. Please notify me for approval before sending. Returns accepted on the basis the item is seriously not as described and if full list price is paid.


So, presumably if a book is seriously misdescribed, but the buyer didn't pay full list price, there is no refund...? Also, if a book is only a bit misdescribed (surely it is either misdescribed or not?) then also no refund applies...?

The fact is that in the UK, one has certain statutory rights, and misdescribing a product breaches those rights, so a refund is pretty much always going to be legally applicable in cases of misdescription.

Special De luxe issue? Limited numbers?

quote - Like most expensive deluxe editions, only a certain number will be printed, and when they are gone, they will SKYROCKET in price, just like the History of the World anthologies which are now selling for 5 times their original release price! If you are a Tolkien collector, get this NOW while the price is only moderatly unreasonable... :)





Yep, good old alan-53 who always writes this big spiel about how he hates people being ripped off by so-called-rare items that aren't and then always proceeds to create listings that many would consider to be ripping people off with so-called-rare items that aren't. I think he is about the worst Tolkien offender on eBay.

Glad it was someone from TCG that got it (and for love, not profit!). It always irks me when one of the major dealers picks things like this up.

PS. I may have to kill you and steal it, though :)

This is a rhetorical question - why should a description of a serious book about Tolkien begin with references to Peter Jackson?!

I'm officially disgruntled.




Hee Hee, you are easily disgruntled.

But I agree with you :)

I think the webmaster should get off his *** and update it!



It's a great site and I use it regularly!
