One last comment, and then I'll quit blabbing about my books....

If anyone actually is interested in purchasing one, feel free to PM me and we can work out a price outside of ebay. I could pass on the savings of not paying ebay fees to the buyer, which would sweeten the deal. Also, I would be willing to sell either the medium blue one that is currently on ebay, or the dark blue one shown in my previous post. I only ever intended to keep only one of them, I just couldn't decide which one to have made, so I did one of each. They both turned out lovely, so I would be quite happy to keep either one.

Thanks for reading, and I hope that no one minds my use of this forum to show these books. I don't mean to turn it into a classified ad. This is truly the only Tolkien related forum that I enjoy, and I feel that the contributors actually 'contribute' to the collecting community. Thanks!

Here is why I was under that impression:

From the Harper Collins Update thread.....

(Rowns)

David Brawn has gotten back to me with some answers to questions I asked (mostly based on questions posed here in the forums or in private emails to me). I thought I would summarize here as well as tracking down all the threads and posting snippets all over the forums.

Sigurd and Gudrun Super Deluxe will be available to ship to the USA at the same time as the rest of the world, now that HC and Houghton Mifflin have an arrangement in place. Only the Super Deluxe editions are covered, though, so other titles/specials from tolkien.co.uk are still not allowed to ship to the USA.

Well, the Super Deluxe Sigurd is now shown as available for sale. Too bad the website is rejecting me due to:

"Sorry, the following products are not available to be bought from and/or shipped to the country you have specified"

I really was under the impression that this was to be made available to the US right away. I am not sure why I thought that, but it looks like I will have to wait to get one. I am hoping that it is simply because I have to wait until I receive my 'go ahead' email from HC before it will allow me to purchase, but somehow I doubt it. Once again, another great Harper Collins website experience!

Local PBS station broadcast a British edition of the Antiques Roadshow. A yound man brought in two JRRT letters that he found in a book among many that were in a lot that he (or his family, forgive me, I don't recall the entire story he gave) obtained. In any case, one was a typewritten letter with his signature. The other was a wonderful, handwritten response to an enquiry about the outcome of the tale. In it (reading as quickly as I could), the Professor noted that Frodo was ultimately doomed to fail in his quest to destroy the ring. It had some condition problems. But the appraiser nonetheless thought it worth at least 2000 pounds. I suspect, given the date (1954?) and the subject, it could be worth more. Has anyone else seen it?

Away from The Green Hill Country,
