Hi 'the Don' and welcome
This is a nice book and looks good on shelf.
Whilst it was limited it was in fairly high numbers
I assume yours has a cloth type case rather than a faux leather?
this being the case they normaly sell on well known auction site for £150-£225
If I were selling it I would start bidding at .99p and attract interest or if not that brave say start at £100.
Maybe someone on here may make you an offer to save on the 10% fee?
Good luck

did you see the state of the 395 copy. it started at 600 and has slowly been reduced. this being said I do agree make an offer no matter how silly you think it is as you never know.
I think 400 maybe a little more is a realistic price to pay

Wow - a good price for the seller . these normally go for £4-500. The bidding suggests there were two people who really pushed the price up. Must have really wanted a copy.
anyone want mine for £1,400 ?

I have been very suprised by the lack of 'good' books/items going up for sale paticularly in light of the Hobbit film being released.

I was anticipating a flooding of the market similar to the effect the LOTR film had but it appears not. Ebay numbers under a 'Tolkien' search has gone up to around 11,500 items from 10,500 and has maintained this over Christmas but in the main this has been the usual film tie in's etc.

Even abe books havent had a huge amount more put up for sale.

Whilst I have brought some items I wouldnt say it is a huge amount more than usual.

Anyone else noticed this /thoughts ?
