Well done Remy a great find and a good question for khamul re selling them for £100. I suspect I know the answer!

Quite expensive but the last one sold for £400+ albeit now back for sale and not selling!

I see someone tried a cheeky offer ! I like the very important question re faded spine - o and by the way nice signature. U never know indeed !


Q: Any fading to the red lettering ("Silmarillion") on jacket spine? Aside from this, would you listen to offers? (£50?) Yours, Brian 18-May-12
A: Hi Thanks for your interest. This book is in absolutely pristine condition and there is no fading to the lettering on the jacket. I am selling it for a friend who is not ebay-wise & am instructed to let the auction run its course. Thanks for the offer, keep your eye on it, you never know..... cheers.

Yep and you can find them - i have in past. Problem is you end up with a garage load of rubbish to find that sparkling gem
Keep hunting though cos the fun is in the hunt!

LOL
Yes in the past i have gone for some 'fantastic' offers only to be seriously let down when they arrive.
My pledge now is only buy if absolutely sure and work on basis if cheap cheap there is something wrong.

not guilty- I was watching but my copy fairly good so not going to bid on it.
Think they go for £120-£150 ish so if bidding got to £60-£70 you would think some one placed a 'good' offer to get it withdrawn ?
