That's a sure fire way to earn yourself a tidy £50,000!

*puts on glasses... so, that's Christopher Tolkein, signing in the year of Our Lord 211, is it?

I know when I'm looking for a copy of The Lord of the Rings, I usually type in "collectible book" on eBay. :)

At least, the price is reasonable... :)

"This is the 1st American edition (Third Impression). This book was made using the original sheets produced by the publisher Allen & Unwin in Great Britain. In other words, what we have here is a first edition in the truest sense of the word."

"A first edition in the truest sense of the word" would be a first impression, not a third. What kind of nonsense is this?

Hmmm. It's not a third impression either. The dual A&U-HM imprint on the title page dates it to the 1960s, so (from memory) more likely an 11th, 12th or 13th impression.
