If it is http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=21450 , then you should definitely get a bit of interest on eBay, as it is somewhat uncommon.

That's no problem. I think it is probably in collectors' interests to share this information, as it is easy to look at the asking prices on Abe and think those reflect market prices (and then significantly overpay). Particularly with the third edition, they should definitely be pretty cheap.

One definite lesson from the data is don't waste your time buying jacket-less copies of the third edition, as the prices are often very similar to those with jackets (and condition of the books is broadly similar). I'm not sure why anyone would buy a jacket-less third, to be honest (other than to marry up to a perfect jacket that they already have). With the second edition, the difference between the price of jacketed and jacket-less is much more pronounced, as you would expect.

Wow, that's by far the worst spine fading I have seen on one of these. Australian sun with no Ozone layer, I guess.

Says 750 pounds in the listing. Too much (IMHO) given the defects. I'd love to have a set of these, but not at these kind of prices.
