Do you think this copy of the two towers ended really high?

Rebinding books is ok, but not when they are as messed up as this


The following auction is for a rare first printing copy of The Two Towers by JRR Tolkien. As the copyright page clearly shows, it is a first printing - there were only 3250 copies printed


$650 USD

£225 for a 7th printing (and does not look to be in that good a condition). It is a mystery to me how they arrive at these prices, I would have thought £10 would be a bit on the high side (even if it had the elusive blue sticker )

Another bargain (£10 book) from the same seller who seems to live in a dreamworld or possibly faerie, I think this is an eBay seller to avoid (£195 quoted).

JRR Tolkien ~ Father Christmas Letters - [written for his own kids] 1/1 ~ 1976

Does anyone on this forum go under the eBay monker of "finnish_guy". If so, I need to plead with you to stop throwing your money away on books that are far too expensive!!!

Every time I see something that I think is *really overpriced*, this guy seems to have bought it.

Examples, I just got the John Howe slipcased centenary Harbacks in unread condition (with a HC 1st Thus Hobbit thrown in) for $36 (about 23 pounds) , but finnish_guy paid 200 pounds. What-the?

And 159 pounds for the HC Centenary Sil? Eeek.

Please finnish_guy, start being sensible, as paying crazy prices just encourages eBay sellers to ask crazy prices!

Cheers
Stu
