I doubt it! I'm no expert, but I know a few and I've helped out one or two, now and again. For instance, in his write-up about the 1st ed. set on the front page at present, David says:

"The Return of the King - 1st UK Edition, 1st impression, the later state with the slipped type and signature mark '4' on page 49, as per Wayne Hammond's revised opinion."

It was I who provided Wayne with the information which led to that revision. That sort of thing.

That sounds like a good plan, John. Thanks for stopping by,

Thanks for watching!

I got a bid of $700.00 for the book, but declined. If it doesn't sell I will keep it and wait for the movie to come out. There is a printing company locally that could reproduce the maps and a local book binder that could put them into the book. Obviously I would have to list the repair when I try to sell the book. I could also simply tip in copies of the map. I'm not an expert on Tolkien books - apparently there are a number of them posting on this site.

thanks for the comments

have a nice day!

John Pollard
