If you have any genuine J.R.R. Tolkein first editions, then they possibly are...

I gave up a few paragraphs in. Besides typos abound and what Trotter already pointed out, I gave up at this sentence:

On the dust jacket of first editions, “Dodgson” is incorrectly spelled “Dodgson”.


It gets worse, I think you picked a wise point to stop.

The Current Bun (Sun) in the UK, published this wonderful web article about J.R.R. Tolkein's (sic) books.

My precious

Do you have these Lord Of The Rings books lying around your house? They could be worth up to £30k

J. R. R. Tolkein's (sic) series has been around for decades - but do you have an early edition?

It is quite a challenge to spot anything in the article that is factually correct

The creative genius of J.R.R Tolkien will be the focus of a major new exhibition opening at the University of Oxford's Bodleian Libraries in 2018.

Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth will explore the full breadth of Tolkien's unique literary imagination from his creation of Middle-earth, the imagined world where The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and his other works are set, to his life and work as an artist, poet, medievalist and scholar of languages.


Trotter edit:Sorry for the re-post, but will probably re-post again every few months, so that everyone who can attend, does
