I don't think that's so - is it? Tree and Leaf was traditionally only LBN and OFS, until 1988 when Mythopoeia was added (and I'm not sure if it still is included, nowadays).

Beorhtnoth appears inThe Tolkien Reader; and also 'Poems and Stories'. I have a Harper Collins ed; with an Alan Lee illo on the dustwrapper. My favourite versions of Beorhtnoth are to be found in Essays and Studies 1953, and a 'special' - that is, a booklet pub. by Anglo-Saxon books in 1991 to commemorate the 1000th anniversary of the Battle of Maldon. (bet Mr. Faith hasn't seen or heard of one of these, either). I bought that at the Tolkien Centenary Conference, held at Keble College Oxford in August '92. where we delegates received as a gift from Christopher a tape recording of Beorhtnoth read by JRR, with CT reading 'Beorhtnoth's Death' and 'Ofermod'.

And there's a special place in my heart for the de luxe Poems and Stories, ill. by Pauline Baynes with two-colour illustrations. Beautiful.

p.s. I also have a set like the one Faith is selling; in very tidy condition.

And then there is the misprint copy of "Black and White Ogre Country" that he has listed for GBP 125.

"Gilt on book spine is double stamped, a rare misprint"

Last time I looked, misprints do not add to the value of a book. We aren't talking rare stamps here...

Another fine listing from Mark Faith and a £159 bargain.

Unwin paperbacks 1977 impressions, special slipcase editions. Scuffing to spines, but books are stiff, unread. I've never seen one of these before and I sell a lot of Tolkien. It must be rare! A must for any complete collection. As far as we know this is the only known printing of the story- The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth.

I can only find five examples for sale on Abe (at much more sensible prices), http://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/Sea ... +Hobbit+and+Other+Stories

No it is not. It is also printed in Essays and Studies by Members of the English Association(1953), and most paperback copies (EDIT published after 1976) of Tree and Leaf
