"An unexpected treasure has been discovered by two sharp-eyed charity bookshop volunteers.

Christine and Robert Williams were sorting through the latest delivery of donations to the National Trust’s second-hand bookshop at Mottisfont,when they came across a small, hardback book, complete with beautifully illustrated dust jacket.

It was a rare 1956 first edition of the children’s novel, The Last Battle, by CS Lewis, which could be worth £1,000. "

Created a new Calendar of the Month for June on the homepage of:

www.tolkiencalendars.com

It is probably appropriate given all of the talk about The Hobbit movie. Hope you enjoy it.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

It is just my paranoia. It is well put together. I have just given it a good tug and it is still in one piece!! For those that haven't seen one yet, the ribbon lifts up a hinged flap inside the clamshell raising the book up out of its protective coccon, which is a much closer fit than with CoH, so no rattling around.


I missed this, it works fine on my copy.
