It was cancelled before ending. Don't know if eBay killed it because of the controversy or if the seller pulled it.

I agree with Deagol, eBay is probably the best place to find one. There was one just a few weeks ago that ended up going for a little less than $40 (£20) including shipping.

[Update - whoops, that was the US poster, with the photograph, not the Baynes artwork. The same seller had a Baynes map poster up at the same time and my memory confused the two.]

I certainly am already finding it useful, thanks for putting it together! The book section here is beginning to fill out, and it is helping me a lot. I have permission from Doug Anderson to work off of his Annotated Hobbit bibliography for example, but his is entirely transcribed as you say, so getting the original language titles is important for me to add.

Thanks again,
Jeremy

The final bid was $5069 plus 20% buyer's premium, so someone took this home for a tidy $6082.80.

[Update - Just after posting this I found Jason's post here as well. Gotta fix those anonymous postings so they come through automatically...]

One never knows.... I was of the same opinion as those voiced here (looks convincing, but that letter couldn't be written by CJRT...)

As it turns out, the letter and signature are authentic (though the seller is not whom the letter was written to.) For the whole story, read this interesting blog post and comments here:

The note and signed bookplates were originally sent to Carl F. Hostetter. Wish I got nice letters like that from Christopher...
