If in good condition, with dust jacket, absolutely. If it is badly beaten (missing pages, tears, loose binding, etc.), it might not be as great a deal, but if it is in tact and just a bit worn, it is not bad at all. If the dust jacket is complete and in decent shape, that alone is of value. In fact, I've got a copy missing a jacket and would probably pay that much to add one to it. Nice find!

Hello, all. I just wanted to post a link to an auction I have going. It is a 1963 A&U set of the Lord of the Rings. The books themselves are in near fine condition with maps and everything in great shape. Dark red boards and topstain. The only flaw is a gift inscription to the front free endpage of the Fellowship. Jackets are well in tact, but unfortunately were "protected" at some point by a plastic film, which is not removable (similar to laminate). However, the jackets have served their purpose over the years and the books are immaculate. A nice first edition set that will probably sell for a bargain. Thanks for looking!

Nienor was said to have fled "swifter than a deer, and tore off all her clothing as she ran." It's now quite obvious from this (most authentic) piece of art, that Tolkien really meant that she rode on the back of a swift deer and tore off her clothing as it ran (alongside her dog).

I don't understand how Christopher could have missed this during his edit of the Silmarillion. Sheesh.
