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.

More madness from the same seller. He has quite a few books up and prices are - without exception in the case of the ones with the David Miller slipcases - completely absurd.

Wow that guy is living in dream land with those prices.

Surely nobody is crazy enough to spend that kind of money?

Hopefully not. He is probably looking to recoup the cost of the custom slipcases as well as make a profit. They appear to be nice slipcases (David Miller produces a good product with these, I think), but I personally doubt they actually add much monetary value to a book (much the same way facsimile DJs don't).

With regards to those three map books, I have the 1st impressions of each, and I think they varied from about a pound for the cheapest to three or four pounds for the most expensive. Pretty sure they were all remaindered (without remainder marks). They aren't very good books or maps, IMHO.

Lost for words. I received this set from HarperCollins and wanted to kill it with fire it was so rubbish. In fact, this was the set that stopped me collecting new Tolkien books. Maybe I should put 'em on eBay...
