I don't think you are the only one this has happened to, but as a tip - broadcasting your good fortune on the internet is a bad idea (relative to sitting quietly smug which is a good idea)! If you were sent something of greater value by accident, legal title doesn't automatically become yours (at least not in most jurisdictions)! I doubt the value of the difference between what you ordered and what you got is worth HC chasing you for a return about, but please don't go posting the number up here. :)

Well, that's why I have waited a while to tell this because it happened some while ago. But I think I had a bit of a (too) light-hearted moment yesterday when I posted this
So I won't post the number up here (thanks Stu for putting my feet back on the ground ).
All I can say is that it isn't a very early and a very late number

Good find Jlong! I had a copy already archived, but good to have it online for everyone to download. I did a search in their archive and also found Oxford Poetry 1915

http://www.archive.org/details/oxfordpoetry1915oxfouoft

and Beowulf and the Critics (which probably shouldn't be on there as it is still under copyright! I have sent a note to Mike Drout asking if he is aware)

Here is what he sent me:

Dear tolkien_hunter,

Hello and thank you for your interest in our auction. We are selling this book on behalf of the daughter of the recipient of the dedication/signature. He was a student at Oxford in the late 50's. I hope this helps.


- jtwros_bks

I replied to him that this was not enough info. Someone will spend thousands of dollars on this tough. I wish people would just not buy signed work without good provenance so the markey for fakes would go away.

-It is a very nice book, but very expensive, I bought on the first day without the discounts that you can now get

yes i wasnt aware of the current discount until i went to purchase it, which was a nice surprise.



-If you like this book, you also may want to get the Super Deluxe Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun, though it is not as good a quality as COH.


The S&G Super Deluxe is next on my list. I appreciate all tolkiens works and i find this edition, being the first of its kind for a new, sadly overlooked, work, very appealing.
