By no means a perfect copy, and I'm guessing the inscription is probably embarrassing (It is so annoying that sellers so often mention an inscription and then specifically avoid showing it). Still, might end up being a cheaper copy for someone who simply wants to complete their set.

eBay Item #141418892317


I got a copy of the inscription for anyone interested in bidding, have seen a lot worse.



Went for GBP 41 (vs GBP 160 for the copy that didn't have any writing). A lesson to everyone not to write in books!

Oh noes ...

Thanks to Ian's kindness I am now the owner of one of the first 100 copies ... but there is going to be a new, changed one? So I need to get that as well? :D

Well, for that kind of booklet it's most definitely worth the effort.

The Murder of Tom Bombadil - Ian Hall

Tom Bomdrill had dealt with the joke all his life. "Tom Bombadil" he was called since grade school, after the name of the character in 'Lord of the Rings'.
Tom embraced the nick-name, even running his life round the strange stanza'd poem.
But forty years of marriage can change a man.
Even a normal man like Tom Bomdrill.
One August day, taking one barb too many from his wife, in a moment of passioned rage, he murders her.
For days he sat with the body in the bedroom, haunted by the sight of his dead wife, and the echoes of JRR Tolkein's poetry in his head.
Wrapped up in his own guilt, he does not see any of the strangeness around him.
He decides to walk to the local police station and report the crime, but the simple act does not go exactly to plan.....
When the police can't find a body, something is wrong with the world somehow.


Classic world literature...
