I also have loved this spirited discussion!

And I must say, when Beren said this

I should have checked chronology, but did not find it at first glance.


I had this mental picture of him wandering around his library, looking for the book amongst the shelves...

(Yes, I know what you were really saying Beren, but I still wanted to share. )

Wayne and Christina will be reading from The J. R. R. Tolkien Companion and Guide at a local event in North Adams, MA on October 11th.

The event is sponsored by Inkberry and Papyri Books. There will be a reading by Wayne and Christina, refreshments, and the entire event is free!

For those in the Massachusetts area, this seems like an excellent opportunity.

Hi Kelly,

I think you are talking about the set on this page http://tolkien.skwishmi.com/guide/pbset.html about half-way down:

Ballantine Reprint Edition, 1973-1974

In good contition, it can easily sell in the $20-50 range (really depending on condition.) It certainly is a collectible that US collectors enjoy picking up, but it is not especially scarce.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have more questions.

Aw man,

you guys start talking about eBay signatures, so someone goes and whips out a forgery to sell a piece of junk:

Hi everyone,

as has been mentioned in a few other threads, it got quiet in here (and elsewhere) over the summer. It does seem to be picking up again (though of course I am assuming a lot of regulars are at Oxonmoot right now, so it may still be a quiet weekend.)

I wanted to post my "find of the summer" as far as Tolkien collecting goes, and hopefully get some stories out of you as well. Did you strike gold in a used bookstore somewhere? Finally get a hit from an AbeBooks want? See something on eBay for the first time in years?

Here's mine...

Through some creative google searching and a random stab in the dark, I managed to track down a Tolkien fan active in the late 1960's who wanted to get rid of a stack of fanzines. Just recently the box arrived, and I have had a great time digging through it - a complete run of "Middle Earthworm", some Amon Hens to fill some holes in my collection, the Tolkien Alliance version of "News From Bree", and a bunch of others - look for Guide updates over the next few months as I read and review most of the issues.
