The article reminded me of a book I own, with a great title The Man who loved Books too much, pity I don't know anybody who fits that title

It is an interesting read.

Rare work of poetry by Tolkien to be auctioned at Tennants of Leyburn.

http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=11800

Auction listing : https://www.tennants.co.uk/Catalogue/Lots/387659.aspx

TOLKIEN fans have the chance to snap up an extremely rare piece of the author’s work which is expected to attract international attention.

The rare first impression copy of a volume of poetry containing early works by J.R.R. Tolkien will go under the hammer at Tennants Auctioneers in Leyburn on August 2.

The Swan Press originally printed a first impression of 170 copies in June 1923, followed by a second impression of 200 the following month, containing three original works by the then young academic.

The volume is expected to fetch between £3,000 and £5,000 and is part of Tennants’ August auction of Books, Maps, Prints and Manuscripts.

Finally got my Deluxe B&L today after my original order apparently got lost in transit and the seller (Speedy Hen) being out of stock for a long while. Has the slipcase height been mentioned here? There's an 1/8 inch gap above the book which is quite a lot more than any other in the series. The first 10 volumes in their slipcases are more or less level as they sit on the shelf, but B&L stands noticeably taller. It's a small thing, sure, and I'm sure glad they went back to L.E.G.O. for this one. I just wish HC would take a bit more pride in its design and consistency. They fix one thing only to mess up another.


The slipcase on my copy is the same height as all the other books (1st prints), which are actually all very uniform. The gap between the top of the book and the slipcase is about the same as LoTR. Some of the others have smaller gaps, or like FoA and Kullervo, no real gap.
