I can't believe that I never thought of dust jacketing this edition! Maybe I'll buy this and make a custom slipcase for it! Anyone know any good ebay sellers who could help me get it signed by the author?

Guess it will not take much longer (or until I find some more free time) and I'm going to write an open letter to ebay...

Want to talk about
- how they make profit from people selling fake items, overpriced items, so called rare items,...
- how they don't allow people to comment on items, and leave the 'seller' (including people selling fake items, overpriced items, so called rare items,... ) to decide to post q&a's on the items, while it should be the other way around
- how they undermine the book selling business by allowing this (people selling fake items, overpriced items, so called rare items,... )
- how they could change some things to make all better
- etc

What a bargain, the event finished two days ago so I'm not sure what you get for your money, but 100's of tickets still available

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Festival-Shire- ... ?pt=UK_Tickets_Tickets_LE (100 still available)

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Festival-Shire- ... ?pt=UK_Tickets_Tickets_LE (500 still available)

I'd like to think that Mark Faith would not take any money from these auctions but surely he could remove these from eBay once the event has finished.

Have a look at this auction

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/LORD-RINGS-Tolk ... t=Antiquarian_Collectible

The pictures show the terrible neglect that these books have gone through, pretty much everything that could be wrong is wrong in these sorry examples. How do you arrive at USD $3000 for this set

and they have picked an appalling and highly unreadable font for the listing
