You can see some of the items which I think are part of the sale in the photo below from the Making of Mordor exhibition at Wolverhampton. The menu to the left of Tolkien's hat is mine, but the other items are part of Hilary Tolkien's estate, which is a lot bigger than shown here. The sale seems to be for a substantial part of this estate.

eBay Item #391040017507



Makes a nice change from "Near Fine", which seems to be the default claim that most book dealers make for their books these days, no matter how damaged the book might be.
