This looks a good buy for anyone in that area of the world?

Great price for anyone who's thinking of reading (hence paperbacks) HoME, but doesn't have any of volumes yet:

JRR Tolkien, The History of Middle Earth, Vols 1-12 (Starting bid: £12; inc. postage)

Eight issues of Princess (Hobbit serialized) magazine from the 1960s have just been listed on eBay. They will not ship to USA, so I can't bid.

A very good price at the moment, if you don't own it, and if you collect why not

This was listed for a long, long while; while a few other copies came & went, for far less. Do you think this genuinely sold (@ Buy-it-now) for $599 (~£373)?

2003.Folio Society Limited Edition Tolkien Silmarillion Leather Science Fiction

Nothing remarkable about the number or anything. Always curious as to why people just suddenly buy copies at this price when other copies have been available.

I recently won a copy on ebay for £235 plus postage. I don't think I would have paid this much. Maybe they needed to complete a set.
Recently there were both a Hobbit and an LOTR from this edition up for auction but the seller wouldn't post to Australia so he ended up selling the Hobbit for a lot less than I would have paid. Also, sets of all 5 books seem to sell for much higher prices than individual copies, presumably this has something to do with having matching numbers, something that's never worried me.

All of the Folio leather bound appear to be about £250 per book for sale, so £1250 is the going rate for all the items, £373 for one book is more than the going rate.

The matching numbers question is interesting, they did not come out at the same time, so how did you get matching numbers ?

Did the Folio Society facilitate this, if you bought one 1750 limited edition, they reserved the rest for you?

All these editions were limited to 1750 copies, a high limitation.

Yes, they did.
