Some lovely Pauline Bayne's illustrations from Leaf by Niggle (Item 29) and Smith of Wooton Major (Item 30).

You can download the catalogue from here <https://t.co/z8gPGRNDru>.

I think the prices are far too high for Pauline Baynes that they are charging, hopefully may come down to more affordable and saleable levels.

Saw this last night at Oxonmoot, very, very good.

The paperback book (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Leaf-Niggle-J-R-Tolkien/dp/0008205531), has been silently reprinted by HarperCollins, and with no updates on the Impression Page.

The difference is that the printings can be identified by an error on the back of the book, the name of the theatre was wrong.

In the bottom left hand corner

First printing

"Cover design by Iain Craig for Puppet State Theatre Company, whose dramatisation of Leaf by Niggle premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Theatre in April 2016"

Later printing

"Cover design by Iain Craig for Puppet State Theatre Company, whose dramatisation of Leaf by Niggle premiered at the Festival Theatre Edinburgh in April 2016"

The books also appear to be slightly different heights, the original is taller by about 3mm.

I don't think it is, does anyone know?

You asked for some feedback on this post, and I have to say that I am uncomfortable with it.

This site is very concerned with copyright and the rights of the copyright holders.

If someone was to send you the missing copies, how would they be guaranteed that when returned, no copies were made.

In this case I would suggest sending a PM to Findegil to see what help, if any that they can provide, and please accept that they may not be able to help.

I am also going to lock the thread.
