This is not a set I'd particularly set my sights on. But, last month, I was in my local Oxfam bookshop --& they had a nice set (not without faults, but probably about VG+/VG+) for £60. I'll have that...

Indeed. People, if they even read the blurb, are going to be like Who the hell is...? --& rightly so. It's not like I review books regularly or anything. Doug had his reasons I suspect; or rather, had his reasons for not quoting some other reviews...

Thanks for the lesson Stu!
Does it beat Amazon's £14.96 at any point though?

Eh, I'm not that keen!

Did you not just say Where does one order your publication from, if not from yourself? (--in that pompous tone!) I'm not in that much of hurry. Hopefully it will be available via the WUVP site some time soon.

Embarrassingly, Doug has included a quote from the review I wrote for Tolkien Library on the back cover of the paperback!

Just for information, the original Hb had two impressions; OOP from the publisher. It has now been reprinted (or is just about to be) again (with a few corrections; also included in the Pb) in a slightly altered format: the cover has been changed slightly in layout, and is now (I think) without jacket. (Illustrative boards I assume.) This can be viewed here:-

Rowman & Littlefield

The Book Depository prices seem to have gone up. The cheapest UK price for the Pb still seems to be on Amazon, currently available to pre-order.
