Not affiliated with this seller in any way, just an interesting item for you Hobbit collectors. I just saw this on Ebay today:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140077232116

From the auction description: "The Israeli airforce distributed copies of the book among its officers, accompanied by a letter from the Head of Personnel Dept. in the Air-Force command. This 1st edition copy still has the original letter inside."

It is one of the more interesting Hobbit translations out there (I think).

The Tolkien Society are selling unlimited editions of the Tolkien material. Their first disc is identical to 'Facets of Tolkien;'; their second disc contains Tom Shippey (from 'Archives 4.), Humphrey Carpenter/Dr Havard (from 'Archives 3.) and an extra short talk by Barbara Strachey which is only found on the TS disc.

Also, after putting a note in with Nigel, I am going to also buy #1, #3 and #4.

#1 contains a recording of Donald Swann performing "Bilbo's Last Song" in addition to a lot of interesting material on CS Lewis.

#3 contains Humphrey Carpenter talking about his book The Inklings and interviewing R E ("Humphrey") Havard, physician to Lewis and Tolkien, and one of the original "Inklings".

#4 contains Tom Shippey discussing Tolkien.

#5 does not contain any Tolkien related materials, but still looks interesting (George MacDonald focus.)

Oh yes, I forgot to mention - when I was adding the Amazon.com links for the forthcoming books, Amazon let me know that all pre-orders for books (any orders place for books not yet available) are currently getting an additional 5% off. They also reconfirmed that you will get the best possible price between when you place the order and when the book ships.

This is only for Amazon.com (in the USA). Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.ca are not currently offering this deal.
