Edit: This auction is odd - note two tiny pictures of two completely different books. Buyer beware.

Edit2: The buyer has put up some actual pictures (dodgy quality), but probably genuine.

[But yes, I accept the auction could just be a product of an inexperienced user, and the user has inadvertently done a bunch of flag-raising things]

Another Encore set in Australia. Very overpriced, though, especially given the box has torn. And I'm not sure that laying it out on the tarmac to photograph it is the best idea...

Just in case anyone is interested, I have been monitoring selling prices of Hobbits the last few months.

All numbers are roughly converted to NZD at a rate of 2:1, so just divide the numbers by two for pounds. Red indicates ex-libris or some other stamp/bookplate was present. The top half of each section is "without dustjacket" and the bottom section is "with dustjacket".

More than anything, it shows which years seem to come up more often (e.g. 1972s and 1975s come up very often)

[Edit: Updated figures 12/12/2014]

[Edit: Updated figures 01/01/2015 - Notable daft Xmas prices in December...]

Well the primary criterium this time was time and effort involved

A separate ISBN for the set would usually generate a new entry - as was the case for the Book People--Geoff Taylor cover art set.

I have merged entries in the past, but there are a few inconsistencies waiting for me to sort out - like the green slipcase Ted Smart H+LR set.

I went way overboard on variations in the first edition LR boxed sets, but that was just me getting a bit carried away.



I'm all for consolidation, as if there were two entries on tolkienbooks.net, I'd then feel the need to try and seek out the other one (and I'm not even a "completeist"). You see the power you wield?

Splendid. Out of interest, what criteria did you apply to determine this as being a different state of the standard HC set, rather than just a different boxed set all together (as per the distinct Ted Smart/Book People entries for LOTR paperback boxed sets in tolkiebbooks.net)?
