Gawain
I was trying my best to beat your best deal on:
'3 (ebay) Folio Numbered Limited Edition 3-vol LOTR slipcased £75'

Have to admit I have failed as just picked up a set for £90! Was gutted - Not. What a lovely set.

It just goes to show if you hunt hard enough you can still find bargains even on ebay!

Anyhow got the matching Hobbit & Silmarillion for £50 each?

:) :)

With respect to the seller it certainly isnt worth £99. An interesting piece but without Tolkiens library sticker or something otherwise how can you be sure it was from his library and thus its value is fairly nominal I think.
For £100 you are better off picking up a nice lord of rings set, and there are a number on ebay at moment.
After thought:
I thought all of Tolkiens library had the sticker on them but i guess these 'minor' items probaby didnt.

Good point Remy and i know what you mean. I guess it means more to original owner. I havent got this all in one edition but have got the the 3 vol set which is fantastic. Maybe having both is greedy although once you have the bug you just have to have it ! ;)

Agree boneschops. You would think after 1-2 or maybe even 3 -4 weeks they would realise price just too high to sell. This being said i guess at 50p -£1 a go it is worth it on on items worth £100s - certainly a lot cheaper than auction houses at 15-20%. This is I suspect the factor which drives people in direction of ebay.
