I just bought the last one that he had for sale, much higher number than 9 I might add.

I wonder how many he has in reserve for when they sell?

Are members of this forum really interested in the number of a limited edition and prepared to pay more for a lower number?

For us low number collectors out there, David Miller let me know that he just listed #9/250 of the blue quarter-leather Lord of the Rings at his bookstore.

I too don't believe that Tolkien's secretaries signed letters for him.

And I see no reason to suppose that this might be the case here, with Max's 'water colours' example. Christina and Wayne seem happy with it, and that's good enough for me.

Max, in case you're wondering - 'Findegil' is the name used by Wayne Hammond and Christina Scull, two of the world's top experts in Tolkien. Wayne wrote the 'collector's Bible', that is; 'JRR Tolkien: A Descriptive Bibliography', Oak Knoll Books, 1993.

Since then, he and his wife Christina have done much top quality work in this field; they are among a very few scholars allowed by the Tolkien Estate to work with Tolkien's original papers. Here's a list of books written or edited by them (all are published by Tolkien's publisher in the UK; Harper Collins) -

1/ Roverandom - written by JRR Tolkien, ed. Scull and Hammond

2/Farmer Giles of Ham 50th Anniversary edition - written by Tolkien, ed. Scull and Hammond

3/ JRR Tolkien - Artist and Illustrator

4/ The Lord of the Rings 50th Anniversary edition, ed. Scull and Hammond.

5/ The Lord of the Rings: A Reader's Companion

6/ The JRR Tolkien Companion and Guide (two volumes)

These books are generally regarded as essentials for the serious Tolkien collector and scholar.

I ought to declare an interest in this - like one or two other folk on this forum, I contributed one or two things to numbers 5 and 6 in this list.

So - I rate Findegil's assessment of your letter very highly; in my view, you've nothing to worry about.

On the adcbooks website it says it is postponed, so it is confirmed sadly.

Is this definite Wellinghall? Just, the advert is still in latest AH (or have I just received this really late?) Has ADCBooks not officially informed everyone? I mean, people would have had hotels & what not booked. Surprised Malcolm Lindley hasn't put out an email...
