Yeah, I remembered it was darker and a little wider.

I thought about buying that set off eBay, but figured "what do I need with another very slightly different version of a set that I already have in much better condition that only cost me $25".

Hopefully someone lacking a set at all picked it up (which was why I posted it, despite the box being a bit rough). The money I didn't spend on it will no doubt go towards a second edition Hobbit at some point :)

Thanks for sharing the old thread... looks like I have the larger variant. Didn't realize I'd have to find another one of those sets!

What country did you acquire your larger variant in?

Silly price, but interesting to note another Encore version showing up in Australia. That's the third I have noted from there.

But he spent "three weeks trying to find a true value"!

Yeah, I should let him know that my set - also from Australia - cost me $25 and I was the only bidder...

This looks pretty good, looks to have some first printings, but ends very soon, about 5 hours from posting.

Hmmm, I see has increased the price from £500 to £725.

I must admit, I'm not fond of this seller (still somewhat annoyed at him downloading the medium res facsimile Hobbit dustjackets I created and posted up here a few years ago and sticking them on his eBay books without the courtesy of asking -- in which case I'd have probably given him the high res ones...).

That gripe aside, these are undoubtedly rare books, but equally there can't be that many people who particularly want a copy either.

If anyone is daft enough to pay that kind of price, I'll sell you mine which is in better condition :)
