Hi funkybudah,

Never knew a limited edition of this existed either and it seems like nobody here has ever heard of it either (and these forums are probably browsed by a large number of collectors with some of the most extensive private Tolkien Collections).

Therefore placing a value on your item would seem like quite an impossible task (with no previous sales to compare against).

Speaking personally, I would have a mild interest in the item (but others here may have a much greater interest). My main focus is on printed material but I do collect audio also.

My only suggestion is that if you wish to sell it - then list it on Ebay with a starting bid of 1 penny or 1 cent. You can be pretty much assured it will find it's value (especially if you announce the ebay listing on this forum).

Best Wishes.

In our two copies, the impression of the signature on the plate is very shallow, but can be detected by touch, if a finger is sensitive enough, or by looking at the back of the plate with a raking (sideways) light. In letterpress printing, in which inked letters and images are pressed into the paper, the depth of impression will vary according to the preference of the printer -- some like a deep indentation, others only what is called a 'kiss', and everywhere in between -- and the depth may vary slightly also through the course of the print run as a result of wear of the printing materials or mechanical variations in the press.

People who use the internet are about to get a new opportunity to complain about company websites. From 1 March, consumers are being invited to make official objections about indecent or misleading information on the internet. They will be able to complain to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), which is taking on new powers to regulate commercial websites. Up to now the ASA has only been able to monitor traditional advertising. These were generally on billboards, in newspapers or on television.

I wonder if you could complain about fake items or collections of e-books, being sold through auction sites?

Can you add a picture of the limitation to this post?
