I also do not subscribe to "grading" as frankly, grading is totally inconsistent and most of the "graders" TRULY have no clue, so I will use plain English if it is ok with you.. As you can see by the pictures above, this exquisite set is a collectors dream!!! Each book is a delight to behold and each features an exquisite illustration on the endpapers as shown in the pictures to the right.
This is a brand new set, still sealed in plastic and unread. If you are looking for the ultimate in currently published editions, this is it. This would also make a phenomenally nice gift for someone! A FEW WORDS ON TOLKIEN COLLECTIBILITY...Granted, some may be hard to find, but not rare. In order to be a VALUABLE collectible, the books need to be immaculate or close to it, a scarce or extremely early printing of an early edition and if it comes with a dust jacket, that too should be close to fine. Otherwise, they are just common items not worth much, but people are paying gobs of cash, caught up in the frenzy. Before you pay high bucks on a RARE or COLLECTIBLE edition, ask questions and demand to see a picture. I don't believe all sellers are trying to be dishonest, some just don't know any better...
