The following question has been posed on the MythSoc mailing list - does it trigger anyone's memories of something you've read?

>First, when discussing the Inklings in her most recent lecture (which
>by the way drew heavily on Diana's book, which she praised by name),
>she told of an occasion when Tolkien and Williams happened to be
>lecturing at the same time and said that Williams drew a huge crowd,
>while the only person to attend Tolkien's lecture was the official
>note-taker. I don't remember ever having heard this story before, nor
>that there is any such thing as an 'official note-taker' at Oxford,
>never mind the fact that it was Tolkien himself who arranged for
>Williams to give lectures and set the schedule. Has anyone else come
>across this incident?

Hi Jeremy -

The auction that you listed was the second one for a signed 1980 desk calendar within a week. I won the earlier auction which also included a very nice, glossy print of the Hildebrandt's Caras Galadhon illustration (which was also signed by both brothers). As I had not seen one of these calendars on eBay for a couple of years, much less signed copies, it's very curious that two signed ones showed up within a week of each other.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir

Thanks for that, remy. Alas, my copy is hidden away; but I will make a note of this for when I can get it out.

The First Edition of 250 are numbered on the Back Cover. The Latest Edition of 100 Copies are not numbered at all. I will have a look later to see if there are any other differences.

How can you distinguish between them?
