"Part of the description reads: "Rare Book. Lost Edition"

Whut?!"


It must have been lost down the back of the sofa, they might want to look and see if they can find the dustjacket

Well, at least remove the price tag if you are going to ask for such a high price. Sheesh. (Great book, by the way.)

Does this looks real? For me it looks faked?



Someone has paid £310 for this defaced early copy of the Fellowship, not good

Oh, and this.

I think it's the picture of the spine bent back on itself that makes me want to pay £100.

Someone can't spell out 'Tolkien' - even in books!

Are you kidding me?

Not the book, but a single page from a book owned by Tolkien.

Who would ever buy a single page?

Is the seller planning to tear the page out of the rest of the book?

Maybe he's going to sell the whole book - one page at a time.

More bargains £179.99

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOLKIEN-SIL ... ks_UK&hash=item1e7676f1d1

Initially described as "TOLKIEN: SILMARILLION & HOBBIT - 1/1 LEATHER DELUXE EDITIONS- LORD OF THE RINGS", later on mentions the word Faux.

£17.99 for both would be more like it
