Alan 53 has mentioned that another ebayer contacted him, in this item description -

http://www.ebay.com/itm/LORD-OF-THE-R ... tible&hash=item2ec34e1b0d

"FYI, I was recently contacted by another eBayer claiming this is not real leather. It looks and feels like leather, but as I am not a cow and cannot be 100% certain it is, I just thought I'd mention it... Nonetheless, it is a very nice copy."

Why do you need to be a cow to have any idea that a book is leather bound, not all leather comes from cow's, but this item has never come from any animals, it is a paper printing (leatherette)?


I am 100% certain that it is not leather but "it is a paper printing (leatherette)"

That thing's a mess!

This price surprised me:

Lord Of The Rings, The Hobbit, Silmarillion, Folio Society LIMITED EDITION, RARE

I know they're matching numbers, but £1000!?
