I had been watching an auction for this ROTK 1/1, it had 3 days or so left but had a reserve. Just noticed he had reposted it as a buy it now for $195. Guess the seller thought noone was interested, but i sure was!

Thanks Jlong! Just got the book today and it's a very nice copy! The seller threw in a nice 1/1 (unjacketed) Tree and Leaf just as a gift!

Well, I had some trouble finding this related thread, so why not link to it here (where I looked first):

I have had a chance to have a look at the book, very nice signature.

I also recently went to the same bookshop where he bought it, in case they had the matching signed Two Towers and ROTR for sale as well.

No luck

So are you buying it from your Uncle, or is he just going to keep it?

He is keeping it, he likes owning a signed Tolkien book
