Pretty sure this is the same copy as discussed a few pages back (pgs 81-83). Of course, you could "but it now" on Abebooks for £695...

J.R.R .Tolkien, The Silmarillion, 1st/ 1st, signed by Christopher Tolkien (Buy-It-Now £750)

If these prices continue to be in fashion I could likely add the 1st/1st Silmarillion I bought for £20 to our thread on "lucky finds".



Edit: Well, always read the small prints - a signed copy is of course a whole different league!

Only ever bargains from this particular vendor. Still, making these books available is a great service to the fan base.:)

When you first typed that Morgan I wondered what you were talking about!

Yip, £750 would have been a little steep for just a plain old First Edition. It's still steep for a book that was bought for £268; assuming this is the same copy. That price, in itself, was pretty high for eBay, based on previous auctions. But, you could make an offer...

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
