I found it on eBay. I had been watching it and with a few days left the seller ended the listing and put it up as a buy it now for, I think, $195. I happened to see it in a search within the first 15 min of it being listed, and after a quick discussion with my wife :), snatched it right up!
It sounds like you got a pretty good deal too, paying around $100 for your British ROTKs. On top of the one that just sold, I saw one a few months ago go for over $500.

jlong, yes it is a 1/1 (though i know someone on here who would say not a 1/1/1 ) with a dust jacket that is missing the lower piece of the spine. The book is in wonderful shape with only slight rubbing to the bottom corners and the defects to the dj (price clipped, torn down the spine and fully missing the Allen and Unwin piece of the spine). But that is to say for $200 (American) i am very happy with what i bought.
And about the Hobbit movies, that was all tongue in cheek. Extremely tongue in cheek.

They all ended up going for less than it looked like they would. It still makes me that much more happy to get a ROTK 1/1 for $200! I'm still pissed (if I can say that) that there are 3 hobbit movies. They better be AMAZING!

I've only been seriously collecting Tolkien for about 10 years so i only know so much. But these prices are ludacris. Anyone agree or disagree?
I understand to some degree that The Hobbit's gonna sky rocket in price because of the obvious, but other JRRT books???? Especially with no jacket and in ROUGH shape!
So i just want to know what you guys are thinking because not only am i pretty upset that there is a Hobbit TRILOGY, but do all JRRT books have to sell for absurd prices?

Anyone know why there is an actal actor playing Radagast? Either PJ is taking quite the creative liberty or I missed a chapter or two last time I read The Hobbit!
