mmmmmmm
a cunning plan indeed
I also understand signed copies went to sellers who placed the top 10 largest pre publication orders - anyone ever heard of this?

I assume you mean this letter.

I wonder if it really had gone astray or that they wanted another signed copy?

The letter does not state a number that were sent out, does anyone know how many copies were actually provided to booksellers? i.e. was it 100 as in my original post?

Deagol

Did you ever find that letter by chance ? :

'I seem to remember seeing a letter sold with one of these signed books a few years ago. It was from Allen & Unwin to a bookseller and said something along of the lines of: If you order a certain number of copies you will get a signed one for free.
I will try to dig it out. '

Thanks

You are a collector to my heart! But you already know that, right!
I'm holding on some of the really unique items, but since I need to make a living as well I have been selling as well (especially other people's treasures!).

My own collection is rather big, but i intend to sell of 95% of it and just keep the books that I treasure and consider to be my true collection (this is mainly books from Tolkien's personal library and some books that have a story that is more important then the value of the item).

I'm also very much looking forward to see the facsimile edition and in the mean time I enjoy discovering rarities (not buying any, but just gathering the info about it) and that is also a way to collect.
