I got my copy of the Super Deluxe CoH about a week ago (#34, dunno, might have bought it from a frequent of this site) and I love it more than I thought possible to love a book. but there's one thing about it that, and this is pretty funny, I feel sorry for it about (instead of concerned for it's market value), it's bookmark. Mine is a frayed piece of string (silk, lest i be mistaken) that is pulled horribly at it's base. In general terms it seems way below the standards of the book (i mean each page fells like about 3 regular pages perfectly glued together(i simply love this book!!)) What does anyone else think about this bookmark issue? if indeed i am not the only one who got the goofy type?
thanks all!

Just come into my possession is an Easton Press set of The Hobbit and the LOTR all signed by Michael Hague with an original drawing, I think these books are amazing! I now have the chance to purchase a set (also Easton Press) of the lost tales 1&2 and Unfinished Tales, signed by Carol Heyer with an original sketch of my choosing along with an Easton Press edition of Guide to Middle Earth signed by Greg Hildebrandt. Any ideas, personal feelings advice, etc. from some of you more salted Tolkien collectors would be very much appreciated.
thanks all!

I'm pleading the fifth (but did vote). Should my wife ever realize what the total is (or what I have spent in aggregate over the years), my next post would be posthumous! My next website would be the "Compleat Wight's Gyde to Tolkien Calendars".

I have just had a look at some old issues of The Tolkien Collector.

The 60 minute version was first broadcast in 1993 and the 110 minute version was first issued on video in 1997. The reference to Morgoth's Ring must be a slip - not updated from the original broadcast.

I appear to have the Visual Corp. version.

The first time I read Hammond's comments as wasn't quite sure what version (on TV) he was describing. Earlier (in the quote) he describes the US TV version as 1 hour long (or implies that it is). The UK version is clearly more than 15 minutes longer (although I suppose the US TV version may have only run to 45 minutes with commercials). Either way he doesn't ever appear to be talking about the 110 minutes version.

[For information] The Tolkien Teaching Pack that Deagol sites was from 1995; but the Visual Corp. version (from 'The Tolkien Partnership') was quite a bit earlier (1992; MR was forthcoming, and spelt wrong in the credits!)

I think I bought mine on Amazon...
