Well, it's been about three months since I last posted. Guess it's time - now that the summer is over - to reacquaintance myself with he goings on at TCG. Picked up a few calendars over the summer. But as most serious collectors would probably agree, the more you have, the harder it gets to find something that you don't. Have to add the 2008 S.T.I. issue to the list. Am still trying to find someone, anyone that can help me find the Minotauro calendars from Spain. These are commercial issues and seem to be impossible to find (except rarely on eBay). Any suggestions? Thanks all. Hope your summers went well.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir

I was listening more closely than usual to my copy of Sir Derek Jacobi's audio reading of Farmer Giles of Ham, and I noticed right at the beginning (in the space of two sentences) he says Giles with a hard G and then with a soft G. (First same "g" sound as "guilt", second "j" sound as "jump").

Does anyone else pronounce it with the hard "g" sound? I assume the "j" sound is the accepted pronunciation?

Here is an image for you of the lower (rear) board of a book club version of this book. Note that I have seen some where the blind-stamp is not colored, it is just an indentation in the gold faux leather, but this is a good example that really makes it stand out. Note that the spine is on the right in this photo.

This seller is not me, I am just passing on some interesting items:

Jobcol has five very scarce (some even rare!) items for sale on eBay right now. A first edition Leeds University Verse and an 1945 "Welsh Review" that contains the Lay of Aotrou and Itroun, for example. Get out those credit cards!
