I agree that this is a good price, I have four double signed COH's, UK Trade, UK Deluxe and two Super-Deluxe editions, but if you don't have a signed copy already then I think it is worth waiting for tolkien.co.uk to have a 30% off sale on the Super-Deluxe and get that instead.

It is one of the best designed books that I own and its release has significantly lowered the value of the bookplate editions.

I order three years' worth at a time from the publisher, and volume 6 was sent out quite quickly - I'll dig out a link for them.

I'm not in anyway associated with the seller jobcol, and I know most of you guys have probably got a signed (UK no doubt!) CoH in your collection; but this is a pretty good price for the US version. And, if nothing else, a cheap and affordable CT signature.

Yes, the old Riddle letter... the images are slightly different to the ones I have seen before of this letter.

I have done some more research into this and the digital copies of the sound recordings on the British Library web site are under copyright by the British Library and Linguaphone, the copyright on this digital recording runs out in 2059. As they own the copyright on this digital copy then they can restrict its use to streaming only. I wrote to the British Library and asked them to make it available for streaming outside of the UK and it looks like they have done that, you can stream it from the US at any rate now.

The interesting point as I made earlier is that the original 78 record from 1929 is out of copyright, under UK law it expired in 1979 fifty years after that recording was made, and because it is out of copyright anyone who has access to the original record can make copies including a digital copy. If this digital copy was assigned a license such as Creative Commons License then this copy could be made available to anyone and for instance hosted on archive.org or possibly on the Tolkien Collector's Guide

Is anyone on the board able to make a digital copy of these two tracks from the original 78?
