O dear, I don't think I have anything very good (have I been collecting long enough?)

Best find (not online - aren't the best finds the ones where you physically come across the item?) was last year at Edinburgh book fair. Found a couple of Michael Tolkien's copies of the little 1979 Unwin paperback Silmarillion. One was from before publication (cut wrong) & the other was a better copy with a little headed note from GA&U stuck inside apologising for the previous copy; all with the usual Michael Tolkien name & address, and little notes about how it was sent back etc. I know Michael's books come up quite a bit but since my main focus is The Silmarillion - this was nice.
