Never seen such a high priced book on Ebay. $75,000 buy it now for a 1/1 Hobbit. Bidding starts at $50,000. Maybe this belongs in the other thread.

Anyone who pays this kind of money for a book without having an even-bigger-mug (TM) to shift it onto is an idiot.

At this level, I think buyers are primarily speculators.

I'd quite like this set --but neither buyer has actually opened any of the editions or stated that they bought it when it first appeared. So, don't think I'll be bidding. Don't particularly want a set with a 3rd impression LR...
