Not a good answer to my question, I am now more suspicious of these items

I have not seen these signed labels before, can you give any more information on the event that you got them from?


The event was the Fellowship Festival in England (I forgot which one of them) and they are pretty unique as they are sorta business cards stuck into the books. It was Royd Tolkien that brought them, he got his granddad Christopher to sign them as he couldnt come. I have completely forgotten who the other autograph belongs to :( I think in all there were only like 10? Maybe 20? The convention (Fellowship Festival) is not done anymore as the one who did the others sorta didnt pay the actors as promised or something like that. There is no official site for it.

One of the book dealers that you see in this film (the first) is Nigel Williams from Cecil Court, in London, off of Charing Cross Road.

I walked past his shop (my favourite shop) yesterday and it is closed down, as appears to be his website, very sad

I was in his bookshop one Saturday and a lady came in with a very small child (infant) and said "Do you have a copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Nigel said Yes, We have a copy and this is the price (as it was a first edition), the woman looked terrified and thought this is the wrong shop for her and left very quickly.

I'd like to state good luck to Nigel Williams for the future.

Please update on Dealers in this film who no longer are able to supply us with the items we need i.e. books?

A documentary about the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America (ABAA) and its members. The film is centered around the Thirty-Sixth ABAA California Bookfair (2003) in San Francisco. The film focuses on the business of book selling, collecting and the fascinating diversity of material ABAA members present.





There is a Tolkien signature at 20:13, but fortunately not in blue ink.

Some very apt comments on eBay and fakes at 42:17, including an eBay representative giving some guff about Private Auctions.

It is no surprise that nothing seems to have changed on eBay in the last eight years after the film was made

I am trying to find out any more information on these blue stickers that I can.

Can you check your books (seems to be 1975-1978 UK editions) and if you do have any with the same Blue A & U stickers can you post the edition name and printed date?

Thanks

Andrew

A very interesting article by Anke Eismann on how she personally illustrates Tolkien from The Lord of the Rings Fanatics Plaza
