I noticed this on eBay at £3.70 Buy it now and free UK delivery.

If you don't have this book then it is very interesting and has some excellent family pictures.

I am sure he would not have approved at all of this, in fact the only thing that I can think of that Tolkien would have liked to have named after him is a forest.

Hello, all. I just wanted to post a link to an auction I have going. It is a 1963 A&U set of the Lord of the Rings. The books themselves are in near fine condition with maps and everything in great shape. Dark red boards and topstain. The only flaw is a gift inscription to the front free endpage of the Fellowship. Jackets are well in tact, but unfortunately were "protected" at some point by a plastic film, which is not removable (similar to laminate). However, the jackets have served their purpose over the years and the books are immaculate. A nice first edition set that will probably sell for a bargain. Thanks for looking!

Well, the seller does describe the condition as 'Acceptable'. I always wonder what that means; 'acceptable' to whom?

This is not a real term in describing books, and can only mean that the seller thinks that the book is okay and the buyer would accept that.

Which is why it is a meaningless description.

The buyer has to decide for themselves if they are happy with the books condition, and they can not do that until they have received the book and looked at it.
