The first thing is to check the name of the publisher - the 1st printing, and most of the reprints are by Oxford University Press. Then see whether there's a later date on the reverse of the title page. (my 1971 reprint lists reprints in 1958, 1960, 1963)

Check the size of the booklet - the first printing is roughly 25cm by 16cm. (10X6.5 in) I think later printings are smaller?

Never seen so many 'first editions' which aren't actually firsts -

Mind you, the Gandalf figure looks tasty

That's still expensive - I bought a one - off signed book for £35.00, not so many years ago. Just luck I expect. Though if anyone were to ask me what's a good price for a CT signature, I'd have to admit I don't know.

Yes, that's a silly price for a Silmarillion - and Christopher's autograph can't be worth as much as that, can it? (no offence to CT)

As for the Wolfe book - words fail one, don't they?

Whoa! Out of my league!

(I think I might have some idea of who the letter might be to, though. But I'll keep shtum).
