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?

Deagol has updated the site www.tolkienbooks.net

****NEW**** TolkienBooks.net has a new look. Virtually all of the site has been updated with just a couple of Bibiography sections left to do and a few of the articles. ****NEW**** Printing and Binding Early Editions of The Hobbit has been added to the Articles Section. It is based on material that was lost when the site was hacked, but this has been significantly expanded to include new information.

A great post from Beren on his website

http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/9 ... ke_Tolkien_Signatures.php

I think that there is only one copy of the third letter down it has just been sold on eBay multiple times, it is the same letter that Bloomsbury Auctions were going to auction in 2008.

Thanks, Mark. Personally speaking, I didn't go to the 2010 Festival because I couldn't afford the £800 I'd have to find for two tickets plus four nights' accomodation.

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 aford two big events; but we'll see. Let's get 2011 out of the way first!

Happy New Year!
