Hello Little
Welcome to the site.
There are a number of ways to sell your items but from your description and without any further info, I would suggest ebay is indeed your best option. You will reach millions of people and cheaply including of course Tolkien collectors.
I guess it would take you time on any site to list etc and once you get into flow it shouldnt take too long to place on ebay or what about placing them on as a job lot? There seems to be more of this recently especially and with respect for more common editions.
Hope helps , good luck with sale

Hi
Well done
You did ok I think at £80 for full set as they are not often for sale
I am still looking for a return of king to make up my set if you now have a spare ?

I have just returned from an extended stay in Greece
Was walking by a used book store and couldnt believe my eyes ! In amongst all the foreign titles was a very old looking Hobbit with DJ.
Rubber burned off my soles - only the find in was a very scruffy later copy in disguise-!!!!!!!!!!!!

O well - keep searching

I know not really a directly related Tolkien suject but I was after anyones help.

I recently purchased an original Pauline Baynes drawing (some of you may have seen it at large auction house) of three pirates.

I have just received it and must say the detail is absolutely fantastic. There is a faint 'box' in pencil around the drawing and a quote underneath refering to Henry Morgan the legendary pirate.

To me it looks like it was intended as a book illustration as there are also some references noted at the bottom.

I have tried without success to try and find any images/information on any Baynes pirate illustrations.

Anyone come accross any?

Wayne - was hoping maybe you have come across some in your forthcoming Baynes book research?

Any help /info appreciated.
Thanks

Sorry camera broken otherwise i would have posted a picture!

what is going on in the world?
My thoughts/conclusions are 3 fold:
1 Bidders simply do not understand that some sellers are putting a high price in off chance some mug will bid for it without checking the rest of ebay first!

2 Bidders get carried away with battle to win

3 Foul play at work

Let you draw own conclusions
