That's so awesome! Congratulations, and welcome to the club! (Having adopted children myself as well).

... but I hope forgiven ...

... my wife and I have recently been approved for adoption, and we met our little girl for the first time today

This may mean that I have (a) less money and (b) less time for Tolkien collecting, but that seems a small price to pay

I believe the correct approach is to simply remove the page. Wait, with that level of dishonesty, I could become a book dealer.

Actually, if you do look at the pictures from one of the more prominent dealers, you do often see a lot of little bits of eraser residue where things have been "tidied up"... Unfortunately it does tend to leave a shiny finish in areas that otherwise would have been flat, so it a naughty practice.

I'm interested to get the views of anyone who has read the "official" version of Aotrou and Itroun, and also the Serbian/English version.

So far, my feeling is that the Serbian/English version is a far more enjoyable read. The HarperCollins version is - as usual with the official books - overburdened with dry padding. Do I really need a footnote to tell me what a Phial is or what Reave means? Really? Do we have to footnote commonly known words, now?

The HarperCollins release also has the Corrigan Poems, of course, so it is worth having both. If I only had to have one, it would be the Serbian edition (with its sometimes clumsy English).

One of these books is a product, and the other is a labour of love. They are both worth having, mind.

Not bad, right?? I tried that 'two direction' eraser trick on my 1915 Oxford Poetry 1st... the inscription it had on the ffep is completely invisible now! And I only ripped through two of the pages in the process!
