Sigelwaraland parts one and two in Medium Aevum for £1.20 (each).
Mind you, that was a fluke.

Hi all.

On the wikipedia page for the 'Moberly–Jourdain incident', at the bottum of the 'Aftermath' section it reads "The incident is said to have exerted an influence on J. R. R. Tolkien's views and work.".
In the bibliography it references 'Flieger, Verlyn (1997), A Question of Time: J. R. R. Tolkien's Road to Faërie, Kent State University Press .'

I have not read this referenced book yet and cant get my hands on a copy at the moment. Can somebody shed light on how this exact event influenced Tolkien.

Thank you in advance.
Loonka.

bruffyboy: Someone got Peoples of Middle Earth 1/1 for £50 at the weekend


I got my own copy of Peoples for about £30 (Buy It Now). I was quite lucky (and happy afterwards)! It was an auction on eBay, but without a picture, so one would've thought it was the paperback edition, unless you read the description.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Peoples-Middle- ... ction&hash=item1e5fde1133

The seller meant to put it on for £150 but a slip of the finger had it sold in minutes!

My own best buy in the short time I've been buying would have to be the 1996 ALan Lee illustrated LOTR box-set PB http://tolkienbooks.net/html/lotr-sc-hc_6.htm which I picked up for £3 plus P&P. It really is a lovely set!

Bit slow in posting here, but previous to a few days ago I hadn't really had any remarkable finds. But, I just bought (another) GA&U (staff copy) CT signed Silmarillion last week for £5! Seller, upon questioning, stated...

" The signature " Christopher Tolkein " appears on the first free end paper. The signature is clearly and neatly written. I can not guarentee, but I think it is likely, that the signature is actually an authentic signature of Christopher Tolkein, who is the editor of this first edition of the book which was published four years after the death of the author. Christopher Tolkein is, as far as I can deduce from the foreword, the son of the author.

Yes, I think he is J. R. R. Tolkien's son; & needless to say, Christopher didn't spell his surname incorrectly...
