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.

How many copies of the various versions of COH are going to be published in the first printing?

I'll repeat vidugavi's question as an important one (if and when a signed edition ever comes out): "where and how would one purchase one?"

Any news on a movie for COH? (HarperCollins is probably not part of those negotiations if they are even taking place, but might as well ask. )

Haha from me too. My todo list grows about four times faster than I check things off for this site.

Lots of good stuff to come soon, though. I'm working on American books (easier now that I can do it along with bookstore stuff, since I bailed on trying to put together a comprehensive catalog).

I have a huge upload of New Line related calendar data and images from a wonderful fellow collector that is making it's way online (2001-2002 done, 2003-2007 still coming.)

I have multiple huge files (VanHecke's and Hildfons Took's) for the fanzine database, multiple megabytes of text.

I have permission to import from TolkienCollector.com whatever I can use, so that will definitely help fill out some images.

And that's just a sampling of the list for uploading and formatting of existing data. The way I figure it, in about two years this site will be awesome!

I made this poll "multiple selection" enabled, but unfortunately you can still only vote once, so those of you who already voted for one choice can't go back and add, but new voters can check as many options as they want now.

I have gone back and added Deagol's second vote for posters and Beren's for A/V and artwork to bring the tally up to date.

Thanks guys, that's ringing bells now - the facsimile Amazon refers to is just the dustjacket art from what I can remember, not the text. I'll dig through Beyond Bree and a few other sources for additional confirmation.

I updated the banner link, working again now.

I've gotten burned by the case sensitivity too - rowns.com file uploads are case sensitive, and the web interface automatically changes everything to lower case. That caused a few headaches until I switched to a great ftp client - Bulletproof FTP - that lets me schedule uploads, picks up broken transfers where they left off, remote file rights management, everything. The perfect tool for hosting my websites on remote servers.
