All i am interested in is if they were all indeed the skinny, thin, ribbons? mostly i just want to know if everyone else's has started to unravel.


I did buy mine off of e-bay, but i am almost positive the gentleman I purchased it from hadn't previously taken it out to read by the fire, and likewise I have handled it as little as possible, although i do gawk over it constantly!!

I got my copy of the Super Deluxe CoH about a week ago (#34, dunno, might have bought it from a frequent of this site) and I love it more than I thought possible to love a book. but there's one thing about it that, and this is pretty funny, I feel sorry for it about (instead of concerned for it's market value), it's bookmark. Mine is a frayed piece of string (silk, lest i be mistaken) that is pulled horribly at it's base. In general terms it seems way below the standards of the book (i mean each page fells like about 3 regular pages perfectly glued together(i simply love this book!!)) What does anyone else think about this bookmark issue? if indeed i am not the only one who got the goofy type?
thanks all!

Just come into my possession is an Easton Press set of The Hobbit and the LOTR all signed by Michael Hague with an original drawing, I think these books are amazing! I now have the chance to purchase a set (also Easton Press) of the lost tales 1&2 and Unfinished Tales, signed by Carol Heyer with an original sketch of my choosing along with an Easton Press edition of Guide to Middle Earth signed by Greg Hildebrandt. Any ideas, personal feelings advice, etc. from some of you more salted Tolkien collectors would be very much appreciated.
thanks all!

I'm pleading the fifth (but did vote). Should my wife ever realize what the total is (or what I have spent in aggregate over the years), my next post would be posthumous! My next website would be the "Compleat Wight's Gyde to Tolkien Calendars".

I have just had a look at some old issues of The Tolkien Collector.

The 60 minute version was first broadcast in 1993 and the 110 minute version was first issued on video in 1997. The reference to Morgoth's Ring must be a slip - not updated from the original broadcast.
