My commitment to you

I have used eBay to buy and sell and I have been disappointed with poor or misleading descriptions many times. This will not happen if you buy from me. Every attempt is made to describe your item accurately and provide photographs that are, at least, above average. Please do consult these 

In addition I guarantee that I am selling an authentic original item, of the correct issue date, that is complete unless otherwise stated. 

Absolutely no attempts are made to hide flaws or deceive potential buyers regarding publishing information.

Where the term 'First Edition' is used this refers to the first published edition, not a later modified edition. If there are any prior editions then the reason for using the term 'First Edition' will be made obvious by additional descriptive factors, for example, First Hardback Edition. Occasionally some editions are simultaneously released in more than one country. Where there might be room for doubt, the country of release for the listed book will be specified. 

In the case that you are not happy with your item you may return your purchase (except items marked Sold as Seen) within 14 days for a refund, provided the returned item is in the same condition. Alas I cannot refund return postage costs unless I have sent you the incorrect item although in some cases, where I am in error, I will make this offer to a buyer. 

I take great pride in 100% positive feedback and will endeavour to ensure you are as happy as my previous customers. That said, I do not tolerate members who seek to abuse the eBay system or its terms and conditions, and will quickly make report of such behaviour to eBay. 

About the Seller

Matt’s first Tolkien read was The Lord of the Rings at the age of 10 or 11 when ill. He had to pretend to still be ill in order to finish the book, so much did he enjoy it. Since then he has read it it over a dozen times and has been gradually building and then selling and rebuilding his collection on and off for over 30 years.
Now a (relatively) recent father, Matt strives to recoup years and earnings lost to a very different illness with a host of initiatives aimed at securing his daughter’s future. Selling his book collection is one of these.
