As a collector I would agree - don't do it I would shout and instead spend what ever monies you can on as early a Hobbit as you can with jacket. You should get a 46 or even a 42 for the same cost as a good rebind

As a seller it is always harder and longer to sell rebinds, you will be lucky to get monies back on a top quality name IMHO

Still its a personal taste thing and no wrongs or rights

It is with great sadness to announce that Roger Garland died this morning after a fight with illness.
A superb artist with amazing talents and one of my favourites. Had numerous exchanges over the years.
A sad loss

Yeah good point - buy it because you like it. You should get one of these at the best price in years. Negotiate I would say

Melthuen for me any day.
Better feel, better look overall looks and feels a quality copy.

Had a few Salesman ones over the years, they are in the main blank pages that's all. Why pay a lot for blank pages??!?!??!?!

HM proof- nah wouldn't bother. Now a UK proof might be interesting !

Good luck
