But these tapes are a LIMITED EDITION - They must be worth having. And it also seems like these tapes (or "readins") were minted in 1859, so they are very early examples of the art.

I could be completely wrong here, but It looks like a self or Mormon published book by Paul Nolan Hyde, possibly based on the following.

"A Working Tolkein(sic) Glossary

by

Paul Nolan Hyde, Ph.D"

What book/pamphlet is this? Does anyone own a copy? I was just wondering what exactly it is. Thanks.


A Working English Lexicon: being a compilation of the English words used to translate invented language elements together with volume and page number of every occurrence in the following works of J.R.R. Tolkien

By Paul Nolan Hyde, J.R.R. Tolkien, Jared Lobdell

Here's a Hobbit -

http://cgi.ebay.com/TOLKIEN-HOBBIT-19 ... oks_2&hash=item4cf87b7a63

You are bidding on an Ultra Scarce Hardcover edition of Tolkiens Masterpiece the Hobbit. Printed in 1954 before his popularity really began to soar these early volumes were as a result printed in scarce numbers.... These early editions are guaranteed to continue to increase in value over the coming years, particularly with the impending release of THE HOBBIT movies in the years to come... Needless to say quality hardbacks like this are near impossible to find. Will make a prized addition to any collection or an amazing start to one. This book is an investment and once bought tend not to be sold so can be a one off opportunity."

...

It's not even in that good a condition..
