I agree broadly with the points you make, Stu; particularly the fact that there is very little out there right now --& therefore decent items are attracting more attention than they might normally, as there are so few of them.

I wouldn't pay $750 for a Methuen Silmarillion though...

Incidentally, here's the problem with eBay (& collecting Tolkien in 2014 generally):

Worldwide "hobbit" search: 73,411 hits.
Of this, only 7,249 (<10%) are books!
Over 40% of the items are classified under "Clothes, Shoes & Accessories"!

And how do you know it wasn't her Grannie who bought it for £1, Trotter?!

I saw that one too, Stu. Had to actually look up who the people were, if I'm being honest. This sort of thing can be interesting (to some), but not at that kind of price.
