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

Another cracking bargain from eBay (£121.50 buyitnow), it's a paperback by the way,and from Deagol's website possibly one of the rare 10,000 issues of the first printing

Missed this part of the description "Our Team aims to provide customers with good value for money"

When posting on this thread, can you please put the salient point in the post for posterity, as the eBay auctions are only available for 3 months (I edited garm's previous post to include the ludicrous price and my previous post).

I think that if you can get these two books for less than £1500 then you are doing very well.
