Nigel Williams Rare Books was pretty well known; I didn't know Nigel at all, but probably emailed him once or twice. The name's sort of up there with Peter Harrington etc. --sad news.

I'm very sorry to hear it. I rang a book-dealer friend of mine, who knew Nigel. Passed away on Christmas Eve, at the young age of 48. Gosh!

Nigel had been ill for some time, I hear. The business won't be going on without him. A dreadful shame; very sad news. He was a nice man.

Im sad to say that Nigel Williams passed away recently. I knew of him from the wine collecting world.

Many different illustrators, lots of different takes on what the characters and scenes look like. Kudos to Lotho Sackville-Baggins who edited this one.
