For those who don't really care about impressions, reprints, etc --I think this, with free UK postage (think of how much this would cost to post!), is a not bad price:

The Complete History of Middle-Earth: Boxed Set by Christopher Tolkien... (Buy-it-now £81.80)

BH



I purchased a book from these guys (speedyhen.co.uk via eBay) a few weeks back. When postage was taken into account, they were by far the cheapest, and it arrived in Australia in 5 days. Packaging was exactly as per Book Depository (i.e. pot luck if the item was going to get damaged), but my book came through fine, so I was happy.

Without looking at the condition, it would be $1,700, max, assuming the condition is good.

I noticed that you can download the BBC's Lord of the Rings series from the AudioGo website for £6.99. If you have not listened to this then you need to.

Bargain. For anyone who hasn't listened to it, it really is a VERY good adaptation. In fact, I might have to have a re-listen.

The one you flagged up, which, as you say, I was watching anyway, was this UNpriced copy:

The Peoples of Middle-Earth by J. R. R. Tolkien (Hardback, 1996)
(Winning bid: £221)

Naw, didn't win that one --why would I want an UNpriced book club copy?!!

BH




Because you NEED both. Crazy person.

Another two new books, the first of which I have asked HarperCollins on a few occasions to print (I doubt if that had any impact on it actually being printed )

I'd like to see the cover for the pocket Farmer Giles of Ham, as I am very impressed with the cover for the pocket edition of Roverandom which is out shortly.
