Meaning if I sold it for less than 1000 I would miss the book more than the money I had in my pocket. This is the situation with most of the books, but I do not want to be unfair which is why I have posted them with a best offer attached....


I honestly don't really know how to feel about this. To me, it feels a lot like hoping to find a schmuck who doesn't know any better. If the book was not available new from the publisher, that would be an entirely different matter, but I personally would feel uncomfortable taking above RRP for one of these (and I have three of the damn things). That is - of course - just my personal opinion.

I read this as "I DO want to be unfair if I can find someone who doesn't know any better and is daft enough".

I don't want to offend, I'm just telling you how it looks.

Per Stu's notes, here are the currently available Easton Press titles:

I will also admit that on eBay these titles can get higher than retail prices (often because of overseas buyers not able to buy through the EP website).



I think it also because some of them were OOP for a while (such as Atlas, Lost Tales I, II, UT) and prices became elevated due to lack of availability as they had all only had a single print. These four were all reprinted by EP within the last 6 months, so I think there will be plentiful supply for quite some time.

The LOTR/Sil/Hobbit set was also recently reprinted, but those are pretty much in continuous supply with the occasional gap in availability.

Beowulf and Fall of Arthur are currently OOP. FoA definitely has had two printings so far.

Obviously, as we are talking about EP, none of the books have any indication of which printing they are. I think the only EP Tolkien book one can guarantee won't be reprinted is the Robert Foster Guide, as they no longer have the rights.

I think some (probably all) of your prices are a little optimistic. The Easton Press titles are all (with the exception of CoH which is currently OOP) currently available from EP for considerably less than you are asking. Similarly, the HC SD CoH is still available from the publisher for considerably less (and is periodically discounted). I'd be surprised if you get any traction in the market with those titles unless you revise your pricing, and they will serve to put people off the books that you are perhaps more keen to sell.

I believe the intention is to release the Lord of The Rings one paragraph at a time in 2017.
