So....

I have added code to the site that will recognize eBay auction links in forum posts (new posts moving forward), then go out and grab the primary image for that auction, save a copy locally, and attach it to the forum post.

All automatic, just works from (pretty much any) eBay auction link that you include in your post.

It is still a wee bit buggy so just let me know if you see any funny stuff.

I now need to grab more images (a lot of times the first image is not the best to save away) if I can figure out a good way to do that. So please still attach images to your forum posts if you think of it.

In the meantime, this should help us moving forward. :)

Would anyone here care to give their assessment of my copy (based on the attached photo), and can anyone make further comment on the number of known US Deluxe CoH copies that have this double signed plate in them? Thanks!



I'd think it is a very small number that were directly inserted into the US Deluxe editions, less than the UK which could not be more than 30-40 copies, but I think the problem is that it is possible to take the bookplate out of the Trade Edition and put it into the Deluxe edition as I have already mentioned.

The Super Deluxe editions would have significantly reduced the value of the Trade copies with bookplates, so I can see why people would move them to Deluxe copies.

this double-signed Hobbit boxed set is up again. Not $18,000 though; and the blurb is just as ridiculous -

http://cgi.ebay.com/Rare-2-Signed-J-R ... tible&hash=item41562c7d7a

He writes:

"Rare Double-Autographed by J.R.R. Tolkien on the album cover (mysterious imitation, hand-signed by ?, close-enough though) & front page (presigned & printed?) of this book, to owner of Talking Illustrations, Terry Sillman, a top Comic Art Shop in BC. Hand-signed!."

So, it's signed, apparently. And it must have been signed by somebody!!

Hello, All. Sorry to resurrect an ancient thread, but I wanted to run something by the forum. I recently came across a US (Houghton Mifflin) Deluxe Children of Hurin with the double signed bookplate in it. I know that from Beren's and Dunedain's posts, that some of these indeed exist. I have been comparing the images posted by Uruloke back on 1-June-07, and I believe that my copy is legitimate.

Would anyone here care to give their assessment of my copy (based on the attached photo), and can anyone make further comment on the number of known US Deluxe CoH copies that have this double signed plate in them? Thanks!

P.S. I can't remember which thread it was, but I very much agree with the recent suggestion that people begin to post actual images and screenshots, rather than links. It's quite frustrating not to be able to view all of the dead ebay links within the forum. Unfortunately, it is a lot of great reference material that essentially has been lost.

Seeing the photos of Trotter’s nice bookshelf made me think to ask the people on this forum; How do you arrange your bookshelf?

I go for the special, valuable, signed editions on the top shelves and the cheap, insignificant books on the bottom.
