I have been umming and aahing about this one for a few days. I'd be interested to know - does the condition really make it worth as little as £145 compared to copies going for twice that?

Hi everyone,

I posted this before but it seems to have disappeared. It's been ages since I have been able to post so I may have messed up the previous attempt. I noticed the item is still for sale and the price looks good to me.

Might be a good buy for those trying to complete their HoME collection.

Admittedly you might have a bit of trouble shifting the S&G deluxe.

I have to agree with Jlong here. I don't think anyone should pay four figures (£ that is) for any post mortem book relating to Tolkien --why not just go out and buy a few genuine early impression of, for example, LotRs?

(Bruffyboy) CT never did any 'signings' (not really), and his signature can't possibly be getting rarer! Where are they going? If you mean it's harder to get a recent signature, then that too would be untrue --there are more CT signatures kicking about from recent times than ever: CoH launch bookplates, CoH Super Deluxe, S&G Super Deluxe --there's approx 1900 for you. His signature is not uncommon, and isn't going to become so I don't think.

Also, if you want to compare prices, you have to think about what, say, £100 was actually worth back in 1982 i.e. the price for the 1982 signed copies of the deluxe Silmarillion --inflation and all that. What would £100 of early 1980's UK money be equivalent to now? I'm not going to guess, but I would suggest many hundreds. That said, it sounds like the most elegant, well made of the Super Deluxe editions...

I went to the Edge of the Wild and had a great morning.

I arrived early and decided to find the Rollwright stones - approx 15 mins away. For those that are unaware these were Tolkiens inspiration for the Barrow Downs. In true fashion the weather was foggy and very wet, although upon reflection this really gave it a 'magical feel'.
Worthy of a visit if ever in area.

From there I made my way to Moreton for the first time.

The artwork was fantastic and myself and another member ? spent some time discussing which Ted Nasmith print was the best. This being said Ted did agree 'Entering Mirkwood' was his favourite - well kind of . After much pondering i couldnt make my mind and brought neither!

The 'Tolkein' section with letters and of course the now famous drawing was the highlight with some facinating family life background- brilliant.

Angela Gardners talk on the new book was very good and gave an interesting insight into her recent research.

Jef Murray and Ted Nasmith were more than open to have a chat and sign and doodle in books etc which was very nice. (Thanks for cat Jef).

And of course not forgetting the real highlight - meeting Trotter & garm of course.

Overall a great event - thanks to the organisers.
