I am struggling with why you like misprinted items for books. Perfect copies are preferred

As for 2012; the Tolkien Society is holding a special event of its own that year; 'The Ring Goes Ever On.' I shouldn't think many folk could afford two big events; but we'll see. Let's get 2011 out of the way first!

Happy New Year!



I agree, I don't think many Tolkien fans would be able to afford to attend both events in 2012 and garm did not mention location, it has to be more central, somewhere like Birmingham (which would allow you to use Festival in the Shire as the title without complaints), not Wales.

Happy New Year as well!

What do people think about Mark's claims on rare Tolkien items.

Rare Tolkien books remain one of the safest and consistent investments. While values rise sporadically, rarely if ever have they fallen. With the new film coming out, prices are bound to rise. Consider expanding your collection of art and books.


Do you agree?

Misprints in books add no value, in fact they seriously reduce the use and value of the book.

I would complain to the seller as they should have told you about this.

Hello Guys
What do you think of this?

Out of curiosity I brought a copy of FOTR Second edition from ebay recently.

Within the book there are a number of faults listing in pencil on front blank page.

1 The title page and page 23/24 are missing. There is no signs of tearing and rest of binding looks ok.

2 Page 147/148 has misprinted. It looks like the page has folded during printing and part of 148 in now on 147 leaving a blank trinagle on 148?

Has anyone seen similar misprints/faults ? Any thoughts?
