OMG that is so K00l!

I have never liked the hyperbole used by flatsigned.com. Though I am sure they have sold a lot of perfectly legitimate books, I have never had the slightest desire to bid on something they are selling.

Okay, it's not Tolkien, but it's still interesting.

Anyone seen this yet?

http://cgi.ebay.com/JRR-Tolkien-SIGNE ... tible?hash=item5886e690f0

Apparently, it is the most rare Tolkien collectible in the universe!

I think we all know what Tolkien's response was , the one missed correction came from him after all (I am sure that he got crosser and crosser when looking through this copy of the book), but I still would like to know if he ever got an apology!

Penguin never got any more Tolkien books so clearly this caused huge problems for him and his publishers (GA&U).

Well of course the good folk at Puffin were quite in the right (or so they thought!) After all; they corrected Tolkien's spelling after consulting the Oxford English Dictionary.

Now, can anyone tell us what was Tolkien's reply to that? (don't all rush at once).
