You probably know this picture, it was used by John Garth as cover (or a part was) for Tolkien and the Great War.

How many pictures of these exist?

The one I have is an original and is still framed as it hung in Exeter College. I'm curious about how many of those pictures were made and if more have been seen in the past?

And also what would it be worth?

Just stop posting all these pictures of stuff you have signed by Tolkien!

(Jlong) I'd second that regarding Drout's Encyclopedia. I haven't got a copy yet! C&G was so much more competitive at the time (-and I've still got TS V to read!)

Postage from UK to US is presumably as bad as postage from the US to UK at present: totally prohibitive! I bought seven new books (standard hardbacks) from Hippocampus Press the other week. They sent it over in some strange big heavy duty bag, called an 'M Bag'. It only cost $49.

More recently I bought two Arkham House volumes (relatively small hardbacks) from a US dealer, and the postage was $34! -more than the price of one of the books. There is basically no point in buying from the US (I feel) at present in less your buying multiple books, especially with the ~1.65 (or whatever it is) conversion rate for the £/$ as well.

Damn credit crunch!... (and USPS!...)

(Sorry) I don't fiddle about with eBay that much, and I'm sure many of you are already aware of this function. But for those of you as stupid as me, I'd like to draw your attention to the Show completed listings only option on the Advanced Search function on eBay.

It's quite useful actually. Or at least I found it so, when I'd been offline for a few weeks. For example you can basically look at all auctions ending in the last couple of weeks (15 days?) with 'Tolkien' in the description (or whatever your interested in).

I thought that was pretty good. You can put them in order of price, and get the most expensive Tolkien items sold on eBay in any given month by just doing this a couple of times. Unfortunately you've got to trail through all the '0 bids' auctions as well, but the successful auctions are clearly highlighted in green.
