Hi Jeremy,

Excellent detective work! Many Thanks indeed for that. That certainly makes a lot of sense and explains why I had not come across one before.

I actually acquired it from a UK Seller. Maybe it was someone working in Harpercollins at the time who decided to keep one for themselves. In any case, it is great to know the background to the item. I am very grateful for your time spent in researching this. I could not find anything at all online about it myself.

Many Thanks Again!!!

Real life has been intruding, so I haven't done much on the Tolkien front for quite some time.

I did manage to get down to the exhibition at the weekend though - it was good to see some familiar faces and meet some new people. Ted Nasmith's new illustrations for the George RR Martin books were fantastic, and Jef Murray's artwork was very striking when seen close up.

There was also a small exhibition of Tolkienalia including his panama hat, a letter to his brother, a letter from Mabel Tolkien to her sister (dated 1894), signed first editions of The Hobbit and Tom Bombadil, some unpublished photos and (courtesy of Beren) a selection of books from his library.
