Hi Deagol,

looks like someone is using your article information on eBay to help them sell some Reader's Union books. Not just referring or quoting, but a wholesale dump of your article, including images and links.

Not very polite... (the image comes from your site, so it is chewing up your bandwidth every time the auction is viewed)

Re: dated bookplates by Alan Lee

The US trade editions with bookplates were not dated, as they were signed in advance by both CJRT and Alan Lee before being mailed over the Atlantic. The UK bookplates signed by CJRT in advance were signed by Alan Lee in person, and all dated (I believe) by Alan Lee.

Other CoH signings done just by Alan Lee he has always dated the signature, to my knowledge.

American Deluxe "with bookplate" on eBay

There is now an American deluxe edition with a bookplate on eBay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260130456166

I haven't heard of any loose bookplates that individuals could have to put in deluxe American editions, nor have I heard of Houghton Mifflin giving any away if they had held onto any bookplates this long.

The deluxe edition in the US was released almost a month after the bookplates were all given away in the USA.

Beren, any possibility this is real?

Hey Beren,

I got the poster tube finally today (must have been customs holding it up) and I found some TolkienLibrary bookmarks inside. Cool! I'm so jealous, I have to go figure out how to print up some of my own now.

Can I add them to the Art/Bookmarks section of the Guide now?
