What would you buy if you had a spare £300 ? Have a little bit money and wondering what everyone thinks is a "good buy" !
Haven't got a first or second edition 3 vol set of LoTR yet, any ideas there?

I do like this set of the first edition Lord of the Rings, this was the first set of first edition Lord of the Rings that I bought.

You should be able to get nice copies with good dust-jackets for less than £300.

I'd put it towards the patio doors that need replacing

Seriously gilraen, do not buy a 2nd/2nd LR set for £299 --this is way, way, way overpriced. You shouldn't be looking to pay over £75 for this set. I mean, who does it appeal to? It only really appeals to collectors. I wouldn't even pay half (£150) for a 2nd/1st set. Hell, I bought a lovely 1962 GA&U slipcased set for less than £300.

I agree with Totter that the RU LR is a nice set. But, again, £300 (--or even near this price)!? This is quite a bit above market value. Jacketed sets aren't even going for £200.

You need to aim much higher!
