That is really unfortunate--they know they have a questionable item, yet they go ahead and sell it.



It isn't just unfortunate, it seems more like it is just plain dishonest. At a minimum, one would think that there should be some kind of note as the the questionable provenance of the item.

i was the one that ended up getting this book, so i will let you know if it is a lighter shade or as i suspect just the lighting effect that is from the flash on the camera. The photo of this book on Tolkien books looks very much the same as well.

I bought a copy of the lord of the rings 1997 deluxe Indian paper edition with the quarter leather, which on the photo appeared to be brown, but as we know is black. I was a little anxious but the ebayer assured me it was just the flash and luckily for me it was, so i am hoping the same will happen this time.



This book looked a bit tatty - what is the general consensus on the final price on this one. I wouldn't mind buying a copy, but this one seemed a bit expensive for the condition (or am I off base)?

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 :)
