Not a 1st edition, not from 1938. But in fact a 2nd edition from 1957...not to mention that eye watering asking price.

You could always ask Alan to sign your edition, he has been known to sign a few Tolkien books

Not a bad copy, shame about this wonder of an asking price though...

Looks like a 6th state slipcase, that someone put a 2,1,1 set into. Also looks like it's been kept in someone's garage...sheesh

A nice set but the starting bid is up there…at least the seller states the initial price is “audacious”

I think they added an extra zero to the price.

I'm really not sold on this particular book. I understand its rarity, uniqueness and such, and how collectors covet it now. But still. How else does everyone feel about it? Do you think it is deserving of its current asking prices? (not this one obviously)
