Hi Khamul,

the only information I have on this is from Ted himself (same info he gave you, I believe). Let me know if you want any help trying to track down additional info from HarperCollins, who might recall a few additional details.

It's back again on eBay even though it sold in February:

Does anyone else have any issue with the stilted/rushed language used in the letter? It just doesn't read like I imagine Tolkien would write, even were he rushed and not much to be bothered. "I have not now got a recorder" for example.

It's the condition of the dust-jacket. Finding one that is essentially new after 75 years (especially on that paper stock) is essentially a one in 100,000 chance. At least according to that bidder, and the person who had the bid just under that.

Hi Julie,

This is one of those items that there are only very few copies, of but conversely there are only a very few people who would be interested in collecting it. There's no real way to say a market value for it since there is so little (no) data on how much people have paid in the past. You will just have to try and find a buyer, if you are looking to sell!

I do not think that Marquette has a copy in their collection - that might be a nice place for it to find a home, if you are willing to donate it - let me know if you want to pursue this avenue, and can help get you in touch.

Thanks for moderating, Khamul and Trotter! I have been out of the country (adopting my second daughter) for the month, and mostly away from the computer and unable to stay on top of things here. Back now, and should be able to start sharing more news, and working on the site fixing things and clearing out spam bots! Hope to make that process easier as well.

I have not put in a CAPTCHA system yet, because they tend to annoy real people much more than they slow down bots. I will improve the system though, one way or another.
