1st impression hardback - Bumped spine, but might still be better than purchasing a paperback for someone who doesn't already have a copy (assuming the price doesn't go up much).

How do you know I haven't been hoarding money under my mattress for this very auction?

Nah, based on a decade of your posts, you don't strike me as on over-payer. Plus, this isn't a Silmarillion!

Ok, reposting now the auction has finished (and assuming Khamul was not the purchaser).

Very surprised at the final price of this one (£109.77).

Hee Hee. I'm surprised you don't already have this set - or are you hoarding?

I've removed the post :)

Thanks guys - glad to hear it wasn't just me that thought the idea of ren-waxing the jackets was odd!

Amazing stuff for keeping corrosion at bay on steel, though. I used to use ballistol gun oil on my swords, and it was a pain because it attracts dust and also condensation droplets, so you are forever having to wipe it down and re-apply (although it does prevent corrosion well). I ren-waxed them about 5 years ago and have never had to re-apply or do anything. Zero corrosion. Unprotected, they would just about corrode overnight if anyone had touched them.

Great stuff - just maybe not for dust-jackets.
