by Khamul on 2010/3/26 20:10:36 The listing has, literally, just been pulled! (Didn't think my questioning was that bad...) BH


That usually means that the item has been sold outside of eBay.

Did not read the blurb when I first posted this, just looked at the pictures, having read it what a lot of made up nonsense about Christopher and his father.

Not seen these bookplates before, but it looks okay to me, even though the seller recently tried to pass off a "Higgins" letter.

Beren on tolkienlibrary.com

Many collectors are waiting for the release of the hardback History of Middle-earth series. Originally the books were planned to be released on 4 March 2010, but this has been delayed. The republication of the History of Middle-earth series is now planned to coincide with the relaunch of the Tolkien website, www.tolkien.co.uk. So, the books will be available from 7 April. Also the publication of the limited edition poster of Oliphaunt will be delayed to the 7th of April. We can except interviews and other special features on this new site.


Yet another redesign for the woeful www.tolkien.co.uk, the site has a cycle of redesigns then gets completely ignored by HarperCollins until the next redesign. I think that they are better off selling through Amazon and posting interviews and articles on tolkienlibrary.com.

I pre-ordered the Index as well when it was £30, it has now gone back to £40.

just the usual Amazon release date nonsense I presume?


I assume that they have not been released yet. The release date of the 4th March 2010 actually comes from the very reliable HarperCollins website, the same site that mentioned they would have black covers.

Just watched the latest Antiques Roadshow and an American woman calls her wrought iron French item from 1925 The Hobbit Tree and says that it was well before the "trilogy ever came out", which is true but very hard to argue that it influenced the books.
