I was looking at an Ebay Item J.R.R. TOLKIEN ~ COMPLETE UNWIN HYMAN CATALOGUE 1989/90 and was intrigued by the entry on this page http://www.mjtbooks.com/images/ebay/jrrtcat08.jpg

There are two maps in packs of six, does anyone know what these maps looked liked, and why were they sold in packs of six?

If they are all 2nd(edition)/2nd(impressions) then they might attract a bit of interest from the more obsessive collectors out there (last impressions Tolkien had a hand in.) They'll still attract interest from the general collector if in good nick though. Might get between £50-£100 on eBay if just VG/VG. Mabey higher if excellent examples i.e. F/F.

I'm no expert though; mabey wait see what others estimate...

I am wondering how I can get someone to give me an idea of what my books might be worth. I have the set of J. R. R. Tolkien books(The two towers, The return of the king, and the fellowship of the ring) Hard back with dust covers. They are dated 1967, and is very good condition. I need help finding someone to appraise them. Can someone help me?

Come on then -where did you get it?

On the matter of low numbered De Luxe's. There had been some discussion at publication time about #1 and #2 going to CJRT and AL. But ?thekerosinkid (eBayer; can't remember the exact eBay ID) stated he was a family member, and was selling an unnumbered copy! It went for £400.

This doesn't affect your prized #1 wellinghall, but if this story is to believed, family/estate copies were probably unnumbered.

Hello everyone

I was lucky enough to acquire copy number 1 of the super deluxe edition of "Children of Hurin". I could be persuaded to sell this, for the right price.

If you're interested before it goes on eBay, please drop me a line, to:
andrew at avro707 dot force9 dot co dot uk, saying how much you would be prepared to pay before p&p (which I will charge at cost). If we can find some way to do it without PayPal or bank charges, I'll be all the happier.

Thanks

wellinghall
