Thanks for all your help with this, I will do a web site and hopefully have it up and running in the next couple of months.

Deagol, Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I did contact you about the lettering on the 4th Impression. As I understand it, the original question was why did the spine of my 4th Impression have a completely different GA&U on the spine (silver and a different font) compared with a copy on E-Bay?

So as you state there are two different 4th Impression Bindings and yet another printers mistake to add to the list.

Do you want a scan of the binding for your website?

Not sure how useful others were finding the RSS feeds in the Links section - I wasn't, given the way the module put them all together, and that most (99% or so) were not specifically collecting related.

For the moment I have turned off all of the RSS feeds from other links (with apologies) while I do some experimenting to try and make the feature more useful to the site.

I have put a test feed in the links section from craigslist.org, for classified ads mentioning Tolkien. A reasonable number of hits come up, and I have bought some good stuff through the ads in the past.

Quick Jump to the RSS feeds page in Links

Please let me know if others find the idea of pumping classifieds through the RSS feeds a useful idea. I can also pump eBay search results in, but they have bugs so the search results in the RSS feed do not match the search results from the original query. I'm in touch with their technical support, but don't expect quick resolution. [As an aside, the search I did a test on was for auctions mentioning Tolkien, with a price of $100 or more, with 1 or more bids. Cuts out all the noise, gives 10 or so auctions per day that tend to be interesting.]

As another aside, a lot of people here may not be familiar with Craigslist. It is for face to face transactions only, they greatly discourage mail transactions (leaving those to eBay and the like.) If you see something interesting in the San Francisco listings, I am willing to work out a way to acquire the item for you and arrange shipping. Let me know if similar search results would be useful from other craigslist regions.

Thanks for the info. I bought the book from a small bookshop about 3 hours away from where I live. I get to go there once or twice a year and it always has something of interest.

I paid $7 Australian.
Thanks again.

The last copy I saw on Ebay (about 6 months ago) sold for almost $350. It was close to Fine.
