I just had a look at all my books (ut, sil, bolt1, bolt2, hob, fr, tt, rotk and atlas) and they all have the incorrect fourth rune on the second line. It will be interesting if they fix this if/when they reprint the ones that aren't in the "set of 5". I hope so as it will define a first and second state of those books, which adds a bit of interest, if nothing else.

Oh, yes and I do have the US 1/1s of HoME, but then you can't have enough variants of that...

The Only US editions I have are Easton Press. I didn't think I would like them, but turns out I do. I just picked up Fonstad's Atlas of Middle-Earth, and it is a really nice edition.

Unfortunately, I don't have spare copies, but the 1987 set were the first LOTR hardbacks that I acquired (back when they came out). They might not have any significant monetary value, but this will always be my favourite set. The DJ artwork works better than any since.

>the_merp_shop doesn't usually do auctions --so this is unusual. Check out the other listings, & prices! Trying to lure us in...

They also auctioned the three volume Super-Deluxe LoTR a month or so back. I think it went for somewhere in the 500s (but can't remember for sure). Maybe they are running out of cash. I've always thought the MERP shop listings on eBay to be outrageously expensive.

Will be interesting to see how much this Hobbit goes for. The last couple of eBay sales seem to have been a little under GBP 300 and a little over GBP 300, so I am guessing that will be the ball park. Current dealer asking prices seem to vary from 375 (Thorntons) to about 500 (David Miller), with several of copies available, but no signs of any selling.
