It does seem that much of the Burren Tolkien Society page has been updated since yesterday to include Facsimile in the wording. Still, I am sure they have some people registered to bid who thought it was real at first. I am sure they will make more or the registration to bid than they will on the actual book.

I posted a comment on their Facebook page about it too. Someone is about to be cheated very badly.

There seem to be a couple floating around but not many for sale. You may try contacting people who have written articles quoting specific portions of the script or even try contacting Boormans publicist. Oddly enough, one sold at auction only 15 days after your original post. http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archiveitem/10848465.html

According to the seller, the copyright page is wet and stuck to the other pages, so he could not post a photo to confirm it is a first impression. LOL!

That History of Middle Earth Deluxe 3 Volume set sold for 1,199 dollars (about 800 GBP). If you look at the item directly or if you are just looking at it in your watch list you will not see the accepted sell price, but if you do a completed item search the correct sell price will show up before you click on the item. Just search for "History of Middle Earth Limited Copies" in completed listings and you will see what I mean. Yes, it is a pain, but it is a way to find out what a best offer accepted item sold for.

I sell internationally often on ebay and just noticed the global postage option the other day. From what I could tell, after the sell completes rather than simply mailing the item directly to the buyer myself, I would send it to an ebay global shipping center where they would then mail it overseas for me. My guess is ebay has had issues with some sellers not knowing how to get an appropriate tracking number on international shipping. When I buy from the UK and they ship to America, USPS picks up the tracking number without any problem. However, most shipping methods from America to another country via USPS will provide tracking only up to customs and not the whole way. This means some evil buyers can simply claim they never got the item and get their money back because the tracking information is incomplete. It is an OK plan for my grandma who would have no idea which shipping method to choice, but it is pretty useless if you know then ins and outs of USPS and which delivery method will be sufficient to prevent an ebay claim against you.

That was me who contacted you via ebay, but I never heard a reply. anyway, I mainly wanted photocopies or scans for personal interest as I have not seen most of the art and would love to read the Princess Hobbit version. I am less interested in obtaining originals, just thought it would be neat to see them.
