I saw some info on the backhand of harpercollins about a new 70 ann. edition that will be published. Sad but i'm unable to log in for two weeks now. They seem to have switched servers and have big problems on website and email.

Once i manage to get inside the backhand i will post the info here. The previous (so called) 70th ann. edition was indeed just a re-print. The fascimile edition is sheduled for this year but they already let some info slip and made some mistakes... very terrible. Now you can see an image of a new book and order it, but you will receive a different (old) book.

It is for sure they were planning a super deluxe edition. First I did receive info on this and even received info on ISBN and how it will look like. Then suddenly the project was been rediscussed and put on hold. Reason was new discussion with the Tolkien Estate. Of course this made me think they would proceed from a signed edition by Alan Lee, towards a signed edition with both Alan Lee and Christopher Tolkien.

If they have the project ready and start discussing with the family I thought it would be about time and place to get the signatures of CT. Then one month later they told me to contact them again in January 2007, and said things had changed and that it was unsure there would come a signed edition in April 2007. So there for I contacted David Brawn in January and you saw about 60% of my answers and questions.

Something went wrong, or pre-orders of the normal deluxe edition are not as high as they expect, or something completely different.... I can contact David Brawn again for more answers if you wish. But if i do so i will need a full list of new questions. So people, if you need to ask anything to the Tolkien publishers just say what you need to know!

Well, bargains i wouldn't call it really, most books are in poor shape...

By the way what do you think of this item: signed letter ??
Doesn't look like Tolkiens Hammond typewriter, doesn't look like Tolkiens autograph either. Any ideas?

Hi Beren,

Are you sure it was a 1st/1st Fellowship? Cannot find the auction in the completed listings. Cannot imagine a 1st/1st Fellowship selling for anywhere close to £100 (or close to £500 for that matter).

I saw a Worn (and poorly advertised) 1st/1st ROTK go for just over £100 alright.

Ebay seems to be a little quieter in general and prices have come down somewhat. But as always, the quality and rare editions still seem to sell very well.
