The Power of Tolkien's Prose: Middle-Earth's Magical Style by Steve Walker

Has anyone ordered a copy of this? I was just wondering if it was any good, though it seems kind of pricey.

My copy of the HC Deluxe LR (bought about a year ago) is a 2nd printing, it has the additional corrections (including Fréaláf, hamfæst, swift falcon) and the right Ring inscription, but still the old index.

It's a questionable signature, the portion of text reveals nothing about style and little of use for comparing the typeface to attested Tolkien typed letters, and we found no instance of his having used "Very truly yours" as a closing in a spot-check of our Tolkien correspondence files.

The signature looks pretty bad to me and seems rather suspect given that it was evidently taken from a letter. Where is the rest of the letter? "COA ISSUED BY MY COMPANY" seems like a worthless piece of paper. I won't be bidding on it.
