I'd hope that most bookshop owners do not get customers like this.

Sigelwaraland parts one and two in Medium Aevum for £1.20 (each).
Mind you, that was a fluke.

Hi all.

On the wikipedia page for the 'Moberly–Jourdain incident', at the bottum of the 'Aftermath' section it reads "The incident is said to have exerted an influence on J. R. R. Tolkien's views and work.".
In the bibliography it references 'Flieger, Verlyn (1997), A Question of Time: J. R. R. Tolkien's Road to Faërie, Kent State University Press .'

I have not read this referenced book yet and cant get my hands on a copy at the moment. Can somebody shed light on how this exact event influenced Tolkien.

Thank you in advance.
Loonka.

bruffyboy: Someone got Peoples of Middle Earth 1/1 for £50 at the weekend


I got my own copy of Peoples for about £30 (Buy It Now). I was quite lucky (and happy afterwards)! It was an auction on eBay, but without a picture, so one would've thought it was the paperback edition, unless you read the description.
