Just wondering does anyone know anything about a Red Slipcase that contains the 6 Horn Book Magazines from 1938?

I have attached photos.

The slipcase does not seem to fit the magazines perfectly and I wonder was the slipcase privately made (possibly by a reference library?) or would it have been issued by the magazine publisher?

Any information would by greatly appreciated?

Hi guys,

Just back to give further thoughts on the teas. I've long since finished off my box of Gandalf the Grey tea, and have been delving into the very refreshing Meadow Mint.

But the true star is the one I've saved for last. The Bilbo Baggins Breakfast Blend is truly lovely. From the moment the hot water splashes onto the tea bag, you have a gorgeous scent of cinnamon wafting to your nose. It's bright, it's cheerful, and it's warming...exactly what you look for in a morning tea. Though I must say I like the taste of it so much that I'm nearly through it after only a couple of days.

I may well have to get some of my American counterparts to order me some more and ship it sans-boxes (to save shipping).

Thanks again, Urulókë!

Trotter: As I only have a limited space for books, I only have about 500 Tolkien Books, so I have had to go for quality rather than quantity, something that I'm sure that a lot of other board members have also done


Well, I go for quality (and beauty) too, rather than for quantity
I'd rather buy one nice expensive book, than several less beautiful cheaper ones.

khamul, thank you for the pictures - that is the same edition as I have, the only difference being that my copy does have a dj (a copy of the american edition). It is interesting to know that it is a "pirated" copy and you are correct - it is not cloth bound. Any idea of the value? I picked mine up for less than 10 pounds.
