That's the book - all text (no pictures). There is also Treasures From the Misty Mountains by James Gillam that has pictures (between pages 127 and 143, but not all Bakshi related materials). It is nowhere near complete in any sense, and sometimes inaccurate, but some of its pictures of rarities are nice for reference.

Thanks for stopping by lapo! Hopefully we can all work on filling out the Guide section on these materials together. Any images and descriptions you can give me I will add to the guide ASAP, if you don't feel like trying it yourself.

I agree with you Dior, I have one of the Guides on the bedside table, and I find myself seriously wanting to have a stack of other books there for cross reference.

Don't think I can get time off work, though. We will be travelling to China soon (who knows, any time in the next few months, as soon as a few weeks...) to bring home our new daughter.

Does this mean you want me to generate calendars out of thin air for you? I thought you already had them all...

I am making progress on the New Line Cinema calendar data dump I was blessed with.

Not really a collectible (at least not yet, who knows, maybe people will be buying and selling characters and items from the game somewhere down the line, or the boxed software may be many years from now) but I just got invited to participate in the remainder of the beta test for the next few months.

I had a chance to play it for a few hours last month, and it was really buggy but still playable, as expected for a beta. I had fun, but wasn't totally blown away (yet).

How many others out there are in to the massive multiplayer games? This will be my first, I'm more into seeing what they have done with the license than staying up till four AM every night hunting orcs. (I do have a soft spot for good first person immersive games, though.)

In my humble opinion, here's my thoughts on this auction.

- The seller has a pretty good reputation.
- The letter is quite likely real (hard to tell, not being able to see the paper itself to tell if it is 35 years old).
- As Parmastahir mentions, this was likely typed up by a secretary, especially given the late date (Tolkien wasn't up to doing all of these sorts of short notes himself in later years.)
- It is quite possible that the signature was done by a secretary as well (ghost signature) as the intended recipient would only care that the thought came from JRRT, not a collectible signature.
- All handwriting experts who happen by please sign up to be a resident expert.
