Certainly a decent price at the moment, but buyers should be aware that-
1. FOTR and ROTK are both ex library with stamps inside and out.
2. FOTR and ROTK do not have the correct jackets. (9th and 8th imp. jackets).

To be fair the vendor makes this clear, but I see a lot of these kinds of listings going for much higher prices than (I consider) the true market value.

Well, I've got a little of everything really, although I'm not quite as obsessive as with Tolkien. Like my Tolkien interests, it derives from what I found pleasure in reading when I was young. I have 1sts of the space trilogy and of the Narnia books (though mostly later impressions) and quite a lot of his religous and other books. I suppose my CS Lewis 'lucky find' was a 1st impression Screwtape in a book sale a few years ago. The interaction between Lewis and Tolkien has always fascinated me as well and I have several books covering that area. My most recent acquisition was mentioned in a thread on here and was a Pauline Baynes-signed illustration from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

I've only recently been able to get all my Lewis and Tolkien books into a purpose-built library area, so now at last I can see what I've been collecting over the last few years. (How on earth did I end up with 5 copies of Morgoth's Ring? I've no idea...)

I have a reasonable collection of CS Lewis and I remember from some while ago that a forum started up called the Stone Table. Just had a google and its still there. Doesn't seem to have a lot of traffic but you might like to have a look.

The winner of the Return of the King copy had never bought or sold a Tolkien book before, according to his shop and feedback. However he did recently buy Richard Burton book for £200 which he has up for sale at the moment. Perhaps he actually thinks he is going to buy and sell to make a profit. We'll see!

It was in fact I who bought the fourth impression FOTR earlier today! If the book matches the description gven, it will be a decent price for the book.

I agree that it should be possible, even now, to put together a reasonable first edition set for £30 to £50 for each volume. However, you will have to keep your eyes open, take your time and not be tempted to overbid!
