Not a good listing if you want to know what you might be getting for £1000-£1450

"“Vol 1 VG The Book of Lost Tales - HarperCollins 1991Vol 2 VG The Book of Lost Tales Part II - HarperCollins 1991Vol 3 VG The Lays of Beleriand - HarperCollins 1991Vol 4 VG The Shaping of Middle Earth - HarperCollins 1991Vol 5 VG The Lost Road and Other Writings - HarperCollins 1991Vol 6 VG The Return of the Shadow - HarperCollins 1991Vol 7 VG The Treason of Isengard - HarperCollins 1991Vol 8 VG The War of the Ring - UnwinHyman 1991Vol 9 VG Sauron Defeated - HarperCollins 1992Vol 10 VG Morgoth's Ring - HarperCollins 1993Vol 11 VG/Inside front dust jacket price cut The War of the Jewels - HarperCollins - publisher date page missingVol 12 VG The Peoples of Middle Earth - HarperCollins 1996”"

Khamul - If you know where I can get one far cheaper, please let me know. There is only one listed on Abebooks at the moment and as I said, I stopped bidding when the price passed that one. There was a cheap one listed a few months ago which sold within minutes of being listed. I tried to buy it but the seller had to email me to say that it had already sold and the impression I got was that I was not the only one who had unsuccessfully tried to buy it.

On another topic, am I the only one who is currently being redirected to blogs.fantasygifts.com when I try to get on the tolkienbooks.net site?

I don't really know; I just don't think you need to pay that much. And, as I said, how do you know it's a first? I bought my 1st imp. copy in 2006 (so long, long after publication) for £3.95 on eBay. John Howe signed it at the Edinburgh Book Festival a few years later. I have a 2nd & 3rd imp., but didn't pay much for them either. Keep an eye on "Interesting eBay Auctions" --one will be flagged up eventually.

For tolkienbooks.net issues: see other thread.

Orcrist is made with the same attention to detail that the swordsmiths of the lost realm of Gondolin would have required.

And only $10K a piece!
