Not sure why I've put this in the Collector's Forum; suppose I should have put it in the General Discussion section. Anyway...

The Worlds of Fantasy
BBC4 Wednesday 27th February 9pm
3 part series (? I think)

Tonights 1hr programme dealt with child (hero) characters in Fantasy; C S Lewis was briefly touched upon. Generally poor; but next week deals with the 'giants' of the genre, including Tolkien.

Might be worth tuning into. Although judging by the content of the first programme, it will probably be totally infuriating!

Hello everybody... Not that I would like to do necroposting but I saw your thread and if Rowns is still interested in the "collector corner" related to Mithril, there is a website / database / gallery / mailboard talking about all aspects of Mithril...

It is unofficial but it retraces Mithril history back in 1988 and all figurines from this time are not available nor discussed at all at Mithril.ie

The url is : http://mithril.faerylands.net

The database is currently under work I am refilling all the info reguarding it, but the forum along with the gallery can provide a lot of interesting collector info (and the database has the average price for all rare figurines , some can reach 500€ and as you said, one reached $2000.

Feel free to visit, and ask questions about it if interested.

Regards,

Gildor

Smaug and Tolkien get a mention from Jeremy!... Paxman that is; not TCG's Jeremy

I've got the stickered Silmarillion copy Deagol may be referring to (unless, of course, Deagol has a copy also!).

Its just a big blue sticker (not dark; quite light) with 'A&U' at the top; leaving a space underneath.

No UK bookseller up to ~1995 could vary book prices though (as you state). GA&U was signed up to the Net Book Agreement (some publishers were not), therefore all books carried the 'Net UK Price' blurb regarding book prices.

To add to this oddity, is the information Deagol had passed on to him from a former employee at GA&U, regarding stickers generally. It seems that these were probably illegal too, as they were clearly able to be removed i.e. were not permanent.

All the same, the blank labels (as you have now confirmed a totally different book with one present) do seem a slight puzzle. The most likely explanation is that they were for a market that did not require a UK price i.e. Book Club, or for Export.
