Just in case any of you had missed the email, or not followed the links. The HarperCollins 40% sale doesn't have that much in it of great interest (I'm sure most have everything of interest here already), but the Rateliff boxset The Hobbit, Mr Baggins and the Return to Bag-End is there; and reduced by 40% that would make it only £30 (with free postage within the UK). Quite good for a boxset I think (always popular with eBayers!), which I assume still has 1srt/1rst's in it (although maybe not...)

This sketch took our breath away when we found it being used as a bookmark in a photograph album. It would be nice to think that whoever buys it would put it on show for all to see. His level of skill at just 19 was astounding. I know I speak for N too when I say that we were honoured to be in the right place at the right time.

Indeed, Findegil wins the Best Wedding Present Ever prize hands down. What a great story...

Now now Holford, you have plenty of nice Tolkien items already I'm sure. Plus, I'm positive this isn't all you've had a close look at in recent months of a Tolkien nature.

If signed Tolkien books can go for £50K+ (although exceptional), then I think a piece like this for £30K-£50K is pretty good. Interesting to see what price it goes for.

Any reason their selling Deagol?
(Garm) Where is it going to end up do you think? (Bodleian?)

Well it was in 80-something and I think his job was to clean out the house to be demolished or something. He wasn't just going snooping in random houses. That really is beside the point anyway
