Bubb Kuyper in The Netherlands has two Tolkien related lots for sale this week. Use the link above to contact sales reps for more information. Prices seem remarkably low, so someone over there (or willing to bid remotely) might get a good deal. If anyone tries to see these or buy them, let me know how it goes! I haven't dealt with Bubb Kuyper before. These lots are being sold on WEDNESDAY 21 NOVEMBER 2007, 7.00 pm

Yes. its very tough on collectors outside of the UK. With both Christmas and my birthday coming up next month, I was disappointed that I couldn't add this to my collection.

Oh well, there's still plenty to collect.

Well, what a relief! luckily i still had my Irish credit card, so was able to purchase 2 copies for delivery to my family in Southern Ireland.
But the whole thing is a mess, I cant understand why they would not be able to deliver outside of the British Isles, its unfair to genuine collectors outside of this region.

Jeremy - thanks for the information on the two books at Rowns Books.

The info on the 1928 impression of FCV is especially helpful because I also have a copy but it includes a later printing of the glossary and a jacket with adverts dated 1932. Your copy would seem to be earlier, perhaps the first binding variant.

It drags the information through from the previous page and isn't editable.
