I was a member for a while but like others cant see any reason for joining now unless you intend to buy 'other' books . That being said the quality of most of he ones i brought was good.
I do like the 'brown' editions that being said i did pick them up cheap so no doubt this has affected my judgement!

A good debate and one I am sure will reappear in the future especially as you say Khamul if another copy comes for sale.
Interestingly if you take average over last 3-4 years these appear once every 11-12 months vs POME say 4-5+ per year. That is telling me something but a good question for David to be sure.

My hunt will continue

LOL
I can see why your book buying days are now restricted. Nice . Careful of the sunlight though-I would have thought keeping on a bookcase would be better

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.
