I don't disagree at all, another 40 pounds isn't pocket change. My point was, when you've decided to spend $20 on something you wouldn't hesitate to spend $24. For the past few years people have been willing to spend big money on this title, the test of time i suppose will show if PoME and WotJ stays at these prices, and the only thing that sets them apart from the rest of the set is that there was no second printing.

I didn't intend to imply you thought it was worth this much, or that you disagreed with me. I just think collectors (everyone) have to put these things into perspective. It's not worth £250. If people stopped paying these prices, then perhaps prices would drop to more sensible levels. I just find it unbelievable, sometimes, that we pay this much for a book published in 1996, yet lovely Tolkien 1st edition sets from the 50's & 60's can (still) be got for the same price.

Yes -- I had been looking for the Proceedings for a long time, but last week I found a used copy on Amazon.uk, cheaper than the Ebay one above, + it included a whole bunch of old Amon Hen and Mallorn issues!

Parts of those Proceedings are incredibly well proof-read, if I do say so myself ...
