You bought a signed Silmarillion for £5? Nice find!

Yeh, I mentioned it before:

Lucky Finds (Post #10)

Still, if you rule out the luck of this find, I also won an auction on eBay for a better copy (with employee note) for £92 a few years back. So, I think $425/£275 is a little high.

Agree Khamul but a nice book to have in collection. It wasnt on for long at all so appears demand strong. Think this is the highest i have seen paid for such a copy?

Looks like Mark Faith of Festival Art and Books bought it, as it has just popped up on Abebooks for £695 --so, again, not bought by a collector.
