I'm in the UK and this is good news. I was thinking about signing up for Amazon Prime, but now think I won't.

What do people think about Amazon Prime, is it worth it?

Sadly, It was very difficult, the first Houghton Mifflin Impression of The Two Towers was issued in April 1955 and was only 1000 copies, so probably the scarcest of all the Tolkien First Impressions. The pre-1960 copies of the HM book lack printing data on the Title Page.

You need to look at Steven M. Frisby's article in The Tolkien Collector (No 21) to work it out, lot of steps to go through as HM did not easily identify the editions, six steps to check including the Dust-Jacket.

Bloomsbury have stated that they can't cancel the Ebay auction or remove the entry from there web site, for 'technical reasons' but it will register as not being sold.

Just had this email from Bloomsbury Auctions

"Thank you for your enquiry. We have now had a chance to reassess the Tolkien item and as there seem to be some question marks over it, we have decided to withdraw the item. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Best wishes

Simon Luterbacher"
