Here's a nice item if you don't mind a little scuffing to the spine

This is a 36-page booklet, of which 5-1/2 pages are devoted to Tolkien. The biographical text by Roy Thomas adds a little local history to what can be had from other sources, mainly Carpenter, and has some inaccuracies. It is accompanied by 5 small modern black and white photos of Tolkien's grandparents' homes in Church and Ashfield roads; the Tolkien home at Gracewell; and the Tolkiens' homes in Alcester and Westfield roads.

We found our copy a few years ago on Abebooks. The two currently on that site are relatively expensive, one ridiculously so at $219!

Well you were right then Trotter! And I never even knew what RSS was, so now I do!

I just find it funny that you guess on everyone's behalf that the follower is not from here, as in my own point of view they probably are, and although they can comment here they probably 'followed' to save numerous wasted trips to the blog or this thread to check for updates.


You can find this out yourself, but your followers name is telco and he posts on the very quiet forum set up and abandoned by HarperCollins (http://www.tolkienforum.co.uk/), not this site. I am still amazed that HC have not killed this forum.

So, for example, you yourself posted it on this thread when the hurin super deluxe post went up. That means you would have had to look at the blog, and if there was nothing new up it would have been a wasted journey, one which could be avoided if you (or others) were a 'follower'.


I used the RSS feed on your site, same as I use for every other website or blog, including this site, to check for new articles or news.

If people don't know about RSS feeds then you can use something like Google Reader (http://www.google.com/reader).

This tutorial may help if you are new to RSS feeds and how to best use them

As regards, the height difference, it does annoy me that they do not match, but I have all six next to each other on the shelf.

Well, it isn't me!

I have another point to raise: bruffyboy wrote:

"The most annoying thing about the difference in heights is that the set becomes less desirable than the separate books which, on their own, look like very fancy one offs. _Indeed, most collectors do not seem to place the books next to each other, opting rather for a height based order rather than edition based._"

Really? I don't sort books according to height, and it hadn't occurred to me that others do, either. My de luxe editions of that ilk are together on the same shelf; variant heights and all I don't really mind the differences; I think of them as a minor detail (if I think of them at all).
