Agree stu and think u did get lucky, maybe the same as I did with my 69 Lotr. People will pay what they see as fit and it is relative to the supply and demand factors and most importantly the desire of the individual.

What is most upsetting is that you will not sell yours! Good for you I say.

I agree with Remy. It doesn't come as any surprise this book went for the value it did and I wouldn't have been suprised if it went for £300. Remember in an auction someone else was bidding £155 so that makes at least two people who wanted this book and as Remy says that is just on one auction on eBay for 9 days.
I paid £100 for my 1969 Lotr - does that make £149 expensive ? No of course not because khamul was happy to pay that amount at the time although others would say (maybe non Tolkien collectors) that even £100 is crazy.
I do believe that the Market will determine the value at any one given time which us what has happened here.
Personally I don't think we will see another copy for some time ago and if we do it will go for more. Time will tell I guess but if any of you guys want to sell your copy for £56 or £106 please let me know.

Has anyone else got any other Tolkien or related art?

Must admit this is an area i have recently expanded- probably because my bookcase will hold no more! and after being inspired at Moreton last year.

Got a lovely pauline baynes piece, along with original Roger Garland and Alan Lee drawings.

Still saving for that Tolkien one though!

Hi
Very good. Looks like your collection is coming along nicely. Like me you need some more book case space as well!
Favourites in your collection for me are The Hobbit Folio with the Eric Fraser illustrations. I know not the most expensive book but i do like his illustrations.
Keep up the good work :)
