I have a rather poor copy. It didn't get listed at TolkienBooks as it was only issued in the US. I haven't seen it in a jacket, but there again I haven't been searching for one that hard....

Goblin Feet (first appearing in Oxford Poetry 1915) has been reprinted quite a bit, but I just ran across an early reprint that I hadn't known about before:

The Open Door to Poetry: An Anthology edited by Anne Stokes, First Edition 1931, Charles Scribner’s Sons, pp 304

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270350031523

The eBay auction was rather pricey (and didn't get any bids) - I have seen this volume elsewhere online right now for $10-$20 in various conditions. Just didn't know it had "Tolkein's" Goblin Feet in it. This title isn't mentioned in Hammond or TolkienBooks.net so I thought I would share it (and add it to the guide.)

all of us have bought a book that we have no intention of physically reading. So we're all nuts!...


Can't agree more! And I love being nuts. Well, at least "Tolkien nuts". Those people who collect other books really are nuts.

Another point that Rowns raises (or at least alludes to) is: why not just ignore the initial clamour, and pick up a copy at a later date; either discounted, or even on the second hand market. It won't cost you any more money.


For this, I would like to clarify that I am specifically talking about S&G if it is released at 500 copies. And, to be completely honest, even S&G will be selling on the second hand market at a premium (i.e. above list price) somewhere down the road - it will be a stunning book as far as construction, the content will be good, and it will be signed by a highly desirable author - it just may take a few (or many) years to find 501 people who want to own one long term. Plus a few will be lost to damage or postal gremlins.

A fan knitted a very impressive looking sweater with Tolkien motifs. Check it out!

Anthony and Jessica have launched a blog for Heren Istarion, that should hopefully be easier to maintain and update than the (still active) herenistarion.org website. Looking forward to seeing more content there guys!
