Red, not the same set though, I don't think; latter listed set has slightly more sun-damaged RK dj spine, and mark to TT dj spine. They probably just listed it after seeing that other price! I'd be amazed if it went for more...

Interesting. The winning bidder was p**w, and immediately afterwards powell2317 put this similar set up for bid.
eBay Item #290560470356
I wonder what it will go for?

Again, am I missing something? I know it's a nice set, but £600+?

I agree.

I hope nobody from Amazon or Abebooks is reading this, but if you as a buyer find an item on Abebooks, ask the seller to sell outside of Abe and you, not the seller cancel the order.

They have to pay about 15% commission so you should be able to get a discount on the item.

Congratulations, laurel! It's an illustration for the chapter 'Henry Morgan, Buccaneer' in From the Fury of the Northmen by Rhoda Power, published by Houghton Mifflin, Boston, in 1957. The picture appears on p. 178.

I know not really a directly related Tolkien suject but I was after anyones help.

I recently purchased an original Pauline Baynes drawing (some of you may have seen it at large auction house) of three pirates.

I have just received it and must say the detail is absolutely fantastic. There is a faint 'box' in pencil around the drawing and a quote underneath refering to Henry Morgan the legendary pirate.

To me it looks like it was intended as a book illustration as there are also some references noted at the bottom.

I have tried without success to try and find any images/information on any Baynes pirate illustrations.

Anyone come accross any?

Wayne - was hoping maybe you have come across some in your forthcoming Baynes book research?

Any help /info appreciated.
Thanks

Sorry camera broken otherwise i would have posted a picture!

I bought a "buy it now" item off this particular seller at an excellent price. It was so good in fact, he refunded the money and refused to honour the transaction, saying "it was a mistake". I guess he never heard of taking responsibility for his.

"A FEW WORDS ON TOLKIEN COLLECTIBILITY...

I have been collecting Tolkien books for over 30 years and it really galls me to find people selling items for ridiculous prices claiming they are "rare" or "highly collectible"; and what's worse is, naive people are paying it~!
