If you don't already own this box-set, then you may well be interested in this eBay auction, no idea what the reserve is?

This is an edition of Alan Lee's signed deluxe 3 volume illustrated Lord of the Rings.

I bid fairly high myself and other people must have bid higher than me and it still hasn't hit the reserve so who knows what they want for it. If it's at the price I think it is then there are several other copies at that price on david's site and tolkien library so I doubt it's going to be a steal for anyone.

When I looked at the auction, I happened across another ebay Listing. This one is for the blue single volume signed/limited edition from 1991, but the seller claims it is signed by Rayner Unwin as well.

[Edit: added image of the Unwin/Lee signature bookplate added in to this copy.]

A nice book indeed but overpriced i feel even with the signatures. The last uk version went for circa £400 and an american one under £300. I suspect this one will turn up at a large auction house with a large reserve
