It has been relisted with a buy it now price of $8889, only $7200 approx more than they paid for it, what a bargain.


This book has been relisted again

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/JRR-Tolkien-SIG ... tible?hash=item1e5b6dc9a5

The most rare book ever now has no reserve and seems to be a loss maker on the price paid to Jonkers, oh dear, it was way over the original price paid but unsold last time.

Could be a good buy as we are certain the signature (initials) are real.

Khamul, I'd never state that any of the threads that I start are interesting, though your contribution has certainly pushed it that way

Khamul, Thanks for posting the link to the old thread, very interesting to reread it.

I noticed something unusual in the thread, Jeremy joined the website on the 26th May 2006 and as webmaster you would expect him to be first

skwishmi responding to my points, joined on the 31st December 1969, as Tolkien was still alive at the time it was a great shame that he did not get him to join. It is also remarkable being 22 years before Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented websites.

On tolkien.co.uk all I keep getting is Commerce Server Error when trying to buy the new HoME Index... BH


I bought the book this morning through the site so it seems to have been fixed, 28 days for delivery, be interesting to see what it is like.

I also cancelled my Amazon order for the HoME Index.

I let Orcraider know that it was not the first printing and the eBay auction has been finished as unsold, which is the right thing to do and mirrors garm's positive comments on the seller.
