An easy question for me... After finding decent individual copies of the Reader's Union edition of The Two Towers and The Return of the King, it then took me another five years before I could find a suitable copy of Fellowship.

Finally I got one through a seller on Abe Books and another set was completed.

It is the same copy; signed & ('but'?) personalised by Priscilla. Orcraider is a v.g./reliable seller; someone just didn't pay up first time...

I'd just like to thank everyone who replied with such useful comments on my first thread on this forum

I don't have much knowledge of signatures as I have never really collected them. The only other ones I have are some books signed by Michael Tolkien in his instantly recognisable fashion. These are in one of the boxes.... somewhere...

Someone mentioned wanting one of these recently. I just saw this and thought I'd post it. It is that special edition of Roverandom (25 copies).

Seems to have been re-listed but at £150 higher starting price than 3 weeks ago.
