Is it just me, or is this guy asking very high prices for the items he has listed?
for example:

Well here's another one to list as a lucky find. I stumbled upon a 1972 unwin allen hard copy of The Hobbit in quite good shape (no dj however), and picked it up for $2. Made my morning!

I would be proud as well. I recently found later printings of first editions of the ROTK and TTT online, and am anxiously awaiting their arrival (they will be the only first editions in my collection).

Yes, all three volumes have intact dust jackets in very good condition considering they're almost 45 years old. I bought a similar set a couple of years ago of a later printing (1970) in not as good condition and paid significantly more for it.

Sometimes the fates smile upon you. Last week I was perusing the book section at one of the local thrift stores when I came upon a set of the trilogy in hardcover. It was a first impression of the Unwin Allen second edition in very good condition. The best part is I picked it up for about 5 pounds. Has anyone else ever been lucky enough to stumble on a similar situation?
