Will do, thanks.

However, I want to list them at a fair starting price and also ensure that I get the "right" amount, so was just wondering what prices I should list them for. :)


I'd start low and advertise the auction on all the Tolkien forums. Pricing is a total guess (and one I'm not qualified to make), but if you make sure people are aware of the auctions, you should end up with a fair price.

It needs to have this exact cover.

Please contact me if you have this book?

Best Regards

Trotter


I have a 19th impression that appears the same as that - or am I missing some minor detail in the picture? The printing in it is horrible on very bleached-looking paper. If it is the right one, I wouldn't be surprised if you could still pick it up new - I only purchased it from BD a year or so back.

Thanks Stu! I was thinking the same thing but just wasn't sure and I've looked
Everywhere for information with little to show for it. I accidently posted this twice
(Just joined so rather new yet) but on the other post I put up pictures but I'm sure
You caught on to what I was getting at. Either way, it's worthless or it has a lot of zeros in the value its staying on my shelf. My uncle just passed and willed it to me. It was oneof the main things we shared together, that being Tolkien's work mmostly. Thanks again tho!


The key thing fault doesn't stop you enjoying the book, and especially as it was left to you by your uncle, it adds some extra character to it :)

Hey guys, I have a box set and in it the first book, "the fellowship of the ring" the cover is on backwards meaning if your looking at the impression on the front of the cover and open it up you are at the very last page of the book and the text is upside down. I was just wondering if anyone else ever caught this error befor? And of that hurts or helps the value. I can post pics if you would like. Thanks!


Haven't seen this specific fault before. Generally faults like this make the book pretty much worthless, but there are the odd people who do like to collect them.

How could you tell it was the HC version without seeing the slipcase better?


The HarperCollins/Encore one has a smooth finish, and the HarperCollins/Trade one has a textured finish. You can see the texture in the photo. There is also a difference in the size of the thumb-holes in the side of the slipcase.
