Trotters advise is good and I would be very very careful about buying with so many fakes around. I am afraid to buy Tolkiens signature is a costly business and I dont know of any economical ways around it.

Supply is low , Demand high and thus this will drive prices up.

If you see one cheap (ie certain ebay sellers) then it is fake for sure.
Stick with the books if i were you.

Mine have the box. I enquired of this book as well. Has someone simply changed the box/cover? Maybe?

hi
Welcome
This looks good to me from others i have seen. I was going to go for this book as well but got times confused with another and missed it. A good purchase.

or maybe i should say its a fake and i will buy it from you at price you paid :)

another good debate

I agree with Khamul. The RoK would be my choice. This being said I personally would rather save my money until i could afford a first impression (can get for £300 with wrapper if patient) or maybe buy a first w/o a d/w (circa £50) and then get a copy d/w (circa £25) to complete. I know the latter is not everyones cup of tea but with a different option.

'Sometimes it's worthwhile buying the rarities when the opportunity arises'

Great advise and dont hesitate. I have lost out on some great offers including a 1963 deluxe LOTR set for £400 only last year because i messed around. So if ROK is a good buy go for it.
