"My dear people!"

Today I received a Dutch Linguaphone Course English.
On two records it says that 'Prof. J.R.R. Tolkien' speaks on it.
Also in the booklets Tolkien's name is mentioned as a participant.
My question is: how much would this course be worth? If it is worth enough, I could insure it...
I am not going to sell it, perhaps if I find another one and then I'll mention it here again.

Hoping you can help me

But then you'd have the problem of damp; and moisture is the enemy of all books! Altho' you might find more square foot for your money...

There is probably some lackey in the warehouse numbering them as we speak with an old bic biro :)

On a more serious note, I think it is a bit poor that I haven't had any response from them (even a simple acknowledgment of the email would be nice) and they still haven't fixed their site. Mind you when I courteously pointed out the bugs in their website before the formal launch they didn't reply to that either, so my faith in them caring is low.

In truth, perhaps I am just getting a bit jaded and cynical with all these deluxe re-re-re-releases of existing material. Unless they do any more editions signed by CRRT, then perhaps I'll get back to concentrating on existing releases for my collection, rather than continuing to fall into the 'special edition collector' trap. I went to see the new Bond movie yesterday (it was quite good, actually) and they had these 'special edition collector cups' of coke. Plastic junk for the masses, but I couldn't help thinking about the parallels with my collecting special edition books. The buyer of the collector cup and the buyer of the book are really both suckers pulled in by the marketing machine for a product being sold way above its intrinsic value.

Maybe I need to go and live in a cave or something as this modern world is getting me down. Sigh :)
