Rebinding books is ok, but not when they are as messed up as this


The following auction is for a rare first printing copy of The Two Towers by JRR Tolkien. As the copyright page clearly shows, it is a first printing - there were only 3250 copies printed


$650 USD

Thank you for the replies, Urulókë and Findegil.

It's quite an interesting piece of publication history.

We've heard somewhere that when Houghton Mifflin granted Contemporary Books permission to reprint "Oliphaunt" they thought that it was going to be just one poem in an anthology, not a separate publication.

Interesting blog post from Douglas A. Anderson, concerning a letter co-signed by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in The Times, 28 January 1949:

Anyone knows where to buy vintage issues of The Times? Old newspapers are always hard to acquire (people tend to just throw them away!)...
