Something new on Ebay -

http://cgi.ebay.com/c1934-CHAUCER-as- ... tible?hash=item518ebe9da1

Looks ok to me - but the price seems a bit steep. What do others think?

BTW - H.F.B. Brett-Smith was a member of the 'Cave', that is, a junta within the Oxford English School which was formed by Lewis and Tolkien in order to put through Tolkien's proposed changes to the English syllabus. Which, if he'd had his way, would have seen Shakespeare out of an Oxford English course (more or less), in favour of more philology!

See 'The Oxford English School' by JRR Tolkien; The Oxford magazine, May 29th, 1930.

" Chaucer should be recovered for such students as a mediaeval author, ... The pretence that no 'English' curriculum is humane which does not include Shakespeare must naturally be abandoned, since that author lies quite outside the purview of such a course."

Somewhat slightly more expensive than Amazon but at least you get free shipping.

I just came across a nice copy of the 1982 Super Deluxe Silmarillion by Allen and Unwin, listed on ebay. It is number 205/1000 and looks to be in nice shape. Unfortunately, it is missing its slipcase, but with the prices this thing usually commands, it could be a real bargain. All it would take is someone to make up a reproduction of the slipcase.

Yes indeed - something like that. After I posted I started looking into my Yahoo-groups account. For some reason it had stalled. I've got it working again, but all the mailgroups on which the announcement was made, Lambengolmor, Elfling and Elfscript2, run on Yahoo-groups, so they were all affected. Other cares worritting at my mind, I hadn't noticed that the drip of group mails had dried up.

No fault of the ELF, therefore.

But it may be noted that Julian Bradfield's Tolklang mailgroup doesn't work on Yahoo, but on Edinburgh University servers; it may be barely alive, but it isn't dead yet; although it breathes maybe once a year nowadays.

ITF also runs on its own servers, but that of course isn´t open to the public. It is, however, intended for committees and editors, conference organisers and the like, of Tolkien societies and closely related organisations in good standing, for (among other things) announcing, even in advance, events, publications, etc., so that societies can then pass these on to their members (at the proper time).
