Well i think a certain Swiss collector might be interested too and no doubt there will be some interest in the States too.

Seeing it for the first time is one of those memories that will stay with me forever. I had sat looking at the drawing for 2 or 3 minutes making the mental connection between the shape of the house and the name of Lamb, both of which were familiar and the cogs were slowly whirring. before my eyes drifted to the bottom left corner, when I made out the letters in the mongram one by one T R R J

I think I said "It's a Tolkien picture" which was a bit daft considering the company at the time! But when i said "It's a Ronald picture" the look on peoples faces was wonderful! We spent the next half an hour trying to convince ourselves that it might not be an original, just a print, but looking at it under magnification showed it was original. The detail in the drawing is fascinating, and it makes a nice pair with the picture JRRT did later of the other side of the house.

Very honoured to have had the chance to see it up close, one of many gems I've been lucky enough to have seen (and touched!) over the last year or so.

TolkienLibrary did cover it I think. Personally I also subscribe to the ELF forum and get the announcements that way.

That link to Rateliff's blog is the first sign I got that PE #18 is out. I would have liked to have had the opportunity to pre-order. Is it really asking too much to wish things like these were announced to the usual channels for the discerning Tolkien-community, e.g. ITF, Beyond Bree, TolkienLibrary, this site?

Those careless Tolkiens!

That said, I think everybody is genuinely looking forward to what you two reveal in late March. No pressure...

Just in case any of you had missed the email, or not followed the links. The HarperCollins 40% sale doesn't have that much in it of great interest (I'm sure most have everything of interest here already), but the Rateliff boxset The Hobbit, Mr Baggins and the Return to Bag-End is there; and reduced by 40% that would make it only £30 (with free postage within the UK). Quite good for a boxset I think (always popular with eBayers!), which I assume still has 1srt/1rst's in it (although maybe not...)
