I can offer only negative information, I'm afraid, i.e. that the Folio Society official bibliography (Folio 60, 2007, a lovely book in itself) gives no number of copies for the first printing. It does indicate that there were five printings through 2004, and that there was a stated limitation of 1,750 for some copies of the fourth printing (2003). The Folio Society tends not to indicate print numbers in its bibliographies, and I believe I'm correct (without unearthing my old correspondence files) that that they couldn't or wouldn't supply them for their Hobbit and Lord of the Rings when I was writing my Bibliography.

Further on the Festival in the Shire, 'Saranna' has posted a long report on the scholarly side of it here on the Lord of the Rings Fanatics Plaza (post of 12 September).

(Is there a vol. 2 too?)

Yes, there is, and apparently both it and vol. 1 (with JRRT) are available for purchase from the Moseley Society - or at least are still listed among their publications. Vol. 1 is priced at only £1.50, vol. 2 (with no name I recognize among the subjects) at £2.00 - plus postage, I'd imagine. See http://www.moseley-society.org.uk/publications.

(Is there a vol. 2 too?) There was a copy on eBay very recently (can't find it, must have gone) for Buy-It-Now (~)£12; better then $219!

I think I would rather just send the rest to you David, and keep doing so each month until I take receipt of a rather special trio of books!
