For the record, this was the response I received when I inquired about the item's provenance: "I bought it in a [sic] anticuary in UK."

Please be aware that Deagol's site (Tolkien Books) looks like it has been compromised by malware. I have informed Neil (Deagol) but I would not advise that anyone visits the site until Deagol confirms that he has removed the infecting code.

If you have been on the site in the last couple of days then I recommend that you virus check your PC.

Hello all.
I have been a fan of Tolkien as long as I can remember. Like many my first book was The Hobbit. I couldnt put it down. I read and reread one summer until book started falling apart. Then came Dungeons and Dragons -wow. Myself and a group of friends were in a world of our own, sure beat drugs!

Favourite part of a book has to be Riddles in Dark -Chapter 5 The Hobbit. I know its boring but I still love it to this day. Other favourities are Tolkiens piece in Essays to Charles Williams and review Devils coach Horses. Great reading.

My book collected days started 20+ yrs ago with a Smith of Wooton Major. Paid £5 (not worth much more now!) but I had my first first edition. I was well chuffed and I still have it.

I find collecting is three part -
Firstly the chase! Finding that book at fantastic price before anyoneelse does!
Secondly - I am getting very picky as got older swooping a book for a better copy. Regulars will get this point i'm sure. I'm on my third Farmer Giels of Ham and still not happy!
Thirdly - Staring at them on shelf. I admire my books. Sad I know and I have not got the biggest collection in world.

Finally best find. Tricky this bit but best financially -almost mint Peoples of Middle Earth for £30 last year. Most satisfaction Sir Gawain & Green Knight with d/j at modest sum!


Look forward to reading everyone elses
