Ah, 11 June 1933 entry of the Chronology is where it is called out. Missed it before!

And it was an Honorary membership.

I am seeing in multiple references (online, and in print dating back to the 60s) that Tolkien was a(n honorary) member of the Icelandic Literary Society, Hid Íslenska Bokmennta-Felag. I don't see any mention of this in the Reader's Guide or Chronology, Carpenter's Biography, or a few other sources I checked. Anyone have additional information?

@Stu and @Berelach - I kind of agree with both of you. When a rare or uncommon item shows up and sells for a good price, that can definitely nudge other sellers to dig out their own copy and list as well. I don't think that happened here in this particular case though - I agree with Stu that we are probably just sensitized to the title having just sold a copy so recently. I do see these on the market every now and then, but definitely most copies are priced higher than I think they will find buyers at. Seeing two copies around the reasonable £100 price point is definitely unusual.

As an additional note - I tend not to use Foster/Tyler any more because I have been spending much time in the Reader's Guide and Reader's Companion volumes from Scull/Hammond. Well worth getting! Not exactly the same purpose, though.
