Hi
I had a UK version proof until recently
It wasnt in mint condition
Got £175 for it. Think $70 a great price. If you have any more let me know

I'd suggest an Auction House to sell this and one that sells quite a lot of signed Tolkien item's like this is Bloomsbury Auctions (http://www.bloomsburyauctions.com) and I'd suggest contacting them for an appraisal.

There may be some interest on this forum in buying this item, so let us know if you decide to sell it through them.

Hi ireland,

that's a nice looking signature! It would be valuable to have some provenance on the Nurse and her relationship with Tolkien, but from my perspective, the handwriting and ink look very good. The book condition (impression, wear, etc.) mean that the value here is in the signature, but I think that it would do well at auction or in a private sale as a good example of a signed book.

I haven't heard anything negative about your book yet (but some have not weighed in). I wish I had more disposable income right now!

Thanks!

I've seen and especially heard Tom Shippey give the first of those two lectures (both described in both first links) in German at the GTS's Tolkien Thing last July.

So I picked this up the other day. Does anyone else have an uncorrected proof copy of Monsters & the Critics (British or American)?

Just trying to figure out how common it is. Even if it is rather easy to come by, I'm glad I bought it. $70 seems like a reasonable price even if it is not worth anything.

Let me know what you think.

Josh

I posted a pic for those interested.
