Laurel I have lost out on some great offers including a 1963 deluxe LOTR set for £400 only last year because i messed around.


Something like that happened to me also. About two-three years ago, I had the chance to buy a Dutch first impression of The Fellowship of the Ring, signed by Tolkien for about €75, I think. I doubted because it was an ex-library copy (without d/j), in bad condition and wasn't too sure about the signature (I was rather a 'newbie' back then), and it was quite a lot of money for me back then. So I let it slip out of my hands, just like that.
A year ago, I was searching Beren's website and in his shop I saw that same book, for about €1800!
I cursed myself to hell. I could have had one of the very few - if not the sole! - signed Dutch Tolkien books.

But too bad, such things happen (although I hope they never do anymore ).

Edit/ Thank you for those photo's Remy!
