Got it yesterday! In answer to the question of the order in which I keep my Tolkien books - I store the tall books on the bottom shelves, and the smaller books on the other shelves.

As for the order on the shelves - I stores 'em by colour, starting with green on the left.

At that price, I can live without it.

£100 plus would be total nonsense. I just don't understand what's happening with middle-of-the-road HarperCollins editions at present. These cannot possibly be rare; scarce perhaps...

Agreed that GBP 100 is nonsense for a relatively recent standard hardback, but the blue covered edition is the only one that allows for a complete set of matching HoME + Index + UT to be assembled, and this edition really does seem to actually be rare. I've only seen it come up for sale three times on eBay (which isn't to say I haven't missed it). For a long time I didn't really believe it existed and the Deagol was messing with our minds by having it on his site :)

Beren - as I understand it, that's what a 'per procurationem' letter is: Tolkien dictated it, the secretary typed it up and signed it on behalf of Tolkien, with her initials underneath. There is no question of her trying to imitate Tolkien's signature.

To remind our fellow readers, here's a link to a page in that previous thread:

sammi, you have a terrific letter there! Enjoy it.



p.s. - you say you have an impressive collection. I'm intrigued - can you give us an idea of what else you have? For myself, I have some six or seven dozen copies of TH; and LotR, and multiple copies of most of the rest of Tolkien's fiction. My favourite areas of interest are Tolkien's early poetry; and his academic pieces, as well as artwok; both by Tolkien and by artists inspired by him.
