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...

Adanedhel posted this as a comment in the Blog of Mazarbul but I thought it useful enough to add here where more people might read it.

A while ago, I started compiling a list of Tolkien’s works in various languages (whether the books were published or not) so that it could be used by collectors to find titles in those languages and use them for search on the internet (or just to see how ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’, for instance, would sound in different languages). At first I started only with the Middle-Earth related books but now I decided to expand the list. It is far from complete, but I’m working on it. You can take a look at it here:

I’m also working on collecting translations of the Ring Verse and I’ll soon post it.

I just finished reading A Tolkienian Mathomium by Mark T. Hooker (with illustrations by James Dunning) into the Guide database. I will have a review of the book written up soon, but it is a good read and a good reference, so go buy a copy if you haven't already.
