Ya sure...let's slap some facsimiles on these and see if can get $1300 for them.

I hate facsimiles being used to tart up books for sale. Great for making them look better on your own shelf, but that's it. They are in and of themselves completely worthless.

"As is usual for these books, boards are edgeworn, soiled, and stained. " <- Stuff like this annoys me. People have tatty books and try and justify the condition by stating it is "usual", which it actually generally isn't.

Man, I've really underestimated the value-add of diamond emojis in the title. Can't wait to tell the wife we can retire early!

"It is also rare to find this work in its original dust jacket an impressive find!" Lol

Oh boy, that was a great read, plenty more to share but I like these two:

"It features a large folding map of Middle Earth, an incredible inclusion by Tolkien herself."

"14003 Photos available upon request."
