I have added an article to the database for Bloomsbury Auctions results over the past few years (going back to late 1998).

Bloomsbury Auctions article

I hope to add similar data pages for Bonhams, Christie's, Sotheby's and other auction houses as time permits.

Useful? Better way to organize the data? Let me know!

Ran across this while looking for proofs online... not affiliated with James Pepper in any way, just passing on the info.

Title: The Silmarillion
Publisher: London George Allen & Unwin 1977
Seller ID: 11592J

First Edition. Publisher saleman's dummy copy used in advance of the book's publication. This sample book prints the half-title, title pages, copyright page and the first 32 pages of the text followed by a couple of hundred blank pages to fill out the book. With a long blank folded sheet at the rear as a mockup for the map that would be in the finished book. Bound in blue cloth with the stamping and decoration the same as that of eventually used in the finished book. Fine copy in a fine proof state dust jacket.

Ah yes, I had forgotten that (though it has come up recently on the MythSoc discussion forum, so I should have remembered! Sleep deprivation most likely excuse.)

It looks good.
Christopher was at Mythcon in 87.

Any opinions?

I don't have enough CJRT signatures to compare against. Any public appearances by Christopher on 26 July 1987?
