I have got a question on this book. My copy of 'Essais' is 'uncut'. With this I mean that I cannot turn all the pages because they still stick together in quires (see photo). Does anyone of you has this sort of copy to? And what is the correct term for this (the term I refer to as 'uncut')?

Thomas

Laurel I have lost out on some great offers including a 1963 deluxe LOTR set for £400 only last year because i messed around.


Something like that happened to me also. About two-three years ago, I had the chance to buy a Dutch first impression of The Fellowship of the Ring, signed by Tolkien for about €75, I think. I doubted because it was an ex-library copy (without d/j), in bad condition and wasn't too sure about the signature (I was rather a 'newbie' back then), and it was quite a lot of money for me back then. So I let it slip out of my hands, just like that.
A year ago, I was searching Beren's website and in his shop I saw that same book, for about €1800!
I cursed myself to hell. I could have had one of the very few - if not the sole! - signed Dutch Tolkien books.

But too bad, such things happen (although I hope they never do anymore ).

Edit/ Thank you for those photo's Remy!

Hi Onónion,

The Iuliene in the photo is rebound. I have attached a few pictures in original (softcover) binding.

another good debate

I agree with Khamul. The RoK would be my choice. This being said I personally would rather save my money until i could afford a first impression (can get for £300 with wrapper if patient) or maybe buy a first w/o a d/w (circa £50) and then get a copy d/w (circa £25) to complete. I know the latter is not everyones cup of tea but with a different option.

'Sometimes it's worthwhile buying the rarities when the opportunity arises'

Great advise and dont hesitate. I have lost out on some great offers including a 1963 deluxe LOTR set for £400 only last year because i messed around. So if ROK is a good buy go for it.

Are you getting the RK 1st/4th for £30? That sounds awful good too. But, another RK will always come around (altho' doubtful at this price) --will the others? Sometimes it's worthwhile buying the rarities when the opportunity arises; you might not see another copy for a while. I'd buy RK personally...
