Another nice listing from David:

I just wanted to let you know I just listed a 1st US Edition Lord of the Rings, all 1st impressions in dustjackets. A pretty nice set, TT's & RotK are exceptional. The url is http://www.tolkienbookshelf.com/si/000735.html I don't think all the photo's show on the direct link


The images will all show up if you go to this link instead:

http://www.tolkienbookshelf.com/?page ... ge&wt=1.00&product_id=169

"The set is housed in a custom marbled paper slipcase to show and protect this beautiful set."

Price = 7600.00 USD

David sent me this to add to the current conversation:


I had no idea that someone was trying to sell it at an auction. Not that it will do much good at this point, but I will print 'facsimile' on the back. I just didn't think anyone would try to pass them off as real, and I should have known better in this day and age. I assumed that being printed on an inkjet would be about the easiest thing to spot, and just thought most people would enjoy a little sample of his writing. Just for the forums info, the original note was only initialed, and I photoshopped in his full signature from another note that came with it. Both now reside at the project earth site in Hawaii, and were tipped into a set of a Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. I will attach a photo, if you like you might post on the forum just for everyone's info. My apologies to all.

I have one of those signed sheets, too. it's very nice - though in hindsight it might have been better if the seller had printed 'facsimile siganture' on the back. On the other hand; it could be said that it's obviously a copy, because of the 'feel' of the card.


Just got another one on these signed sheets with my purchase from David Miller and it does now state Facsimile on the back.

Why am I surprised that there is no Elvish translation on this page?

I was just made aware of this student discussion group by Janet Croft, who will be talking there tonight, and added them to the links section.

Student discussion group/organization at the University of New Mexico. They occasionally have guest lecture/appearances by Janet Croft and Verlyn Flieger.

They have produced two T-shirt designs, so I hope to find some images and get permission to add those to the Guide!
