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 :)

So people still visit that Tolkienbooks site....?
I think the webmaster should get off his *** and update it!



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

I have checked my copies and am pretty sure the Unfinished Tales is this one without dust-jacket

and the Silmarillion is

which matched the LotR

Yep, that was exactly my call on it just from glancing at the photos (I couldn't really see what other editions they could be). And all photographed in sepia to give the impression that they in some way match...
