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.

Both of my copies are printed correctly.

Wouldn't give anything by Alex Lewis / Ruth Lacon-Elizabeth Currie shelf space. And I have a shelf full of Jack Reacher novels, so I am really not discerning...

I wouldn't worry about missing out. If they dump all the stock to the market discounted, you will end up getting a good deal later on. The market for the book is limited. They won't pulp them jst because they can't get top dollar. If you want one quicker, make HC an offer (at least 100 off). They may well accept, especially as the original price was 250 when they first came out.
