Andy's already shown Hilary's Hobbit at Moreton, a couple of years ago. it's very nice - I'd like to see it again.

...errr, yes, I see my error. For some reason I thought the letter was with the initial item; should really follow your link next time Trotter. Not "way, way", but still way out of my price range. Very nice though. Do you think we can convince Andy (of ADC Books) to bring Hilary's copy of The Hobbit to Moreton exhibition?

This will be an expensive set of books and I'd like to know before purchasing if they plan to bring out a box-set as I'd rather buy that than the individual books. Trotter


What kind of horrific boxset would it be, with 12 volumes? *chuckle* Khamul


Something like this from David Miller and no way is it horrific.

Incidentally Trotter, you selling your other copies? BH


A bit of confusion here, two items mentioned in this thread

The first was a lovely signed 1963 Deluxe LOTR which was to be sold at auction this week but it was unsold and anyway far out of my price range. I only have one battered unsigned set of these books so am not selling them.

The second was the C.T.Onions book with a letter from Tolkien in it (that was the item that I bought).

Can't afford to buy this, but I'll hopefully be able to go and have a look at it on Tuesday.
My copies also looked the same as these, sadly that was in 1963 not 2010.
-Trotter 3rd July


I decided myself that my doubts were wrong and I bought the item.
-Trotter 5th July


Incidentally Trotter, you selling your other copies?
