Hi everybody, hoping for some help on a 4 album set of J.R.R Tolkien with both he and son reading excerpt of stories. It has only had one owner (my husband) and is in extrordinary condition. One of the 4 has never been opened.

Description:
J.R.R. Tolkien Soundbook -4 record album set - 1977
J.R.R. reads excerpts from The Hobbit; The Lord of the Rings; Poems and Songs of the Middle Earth.

Christopher reads The Silmarillion- "Of Beren and Luthien"
can give more details if needed.

All records have original celophane and comes in a box case.
the one problem is that it came with a poster: "Map from the Silmarillian" but it is gone. ( my husband hung it on his wall when he was a boy...) thanks again, Oliver

When you say you're hoping for some help; what sort of help do you mean? If it's a valuation, then sorry: I for one have no expertise in that sort of thing. We can give you some background on how the records came to be made though, if that's what you want.

Hi Jodi,

as a rough estimate, the set of four in box seem to be on the eBay market for somewhere between $25 and $100 depending on condition of the albums and the box itself. I have seen asking prices much higher than that but have no record (no pun intended) of them selling in that range. Individual albums still unopened/shrinkwrapped have sold in the past for perhaps $50 each, but that was a few years ago and prices seem to be settling down recently.
