Certain ebay sellers obviously love to appear in this thread, with the dross that they put out on every description.

A serial, repeat offender has listed another item 1973lee1973.

eBay Item #141399303024

"The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy (sic)

worthy of any collection

would make an excellent addition to any collector / fans collection

The Fellowship Of The Ring - very early 1959 8th Impression - previous owners inscription to FEP, MAP present at back, minor spine lean, dustjacket price clipped and held together with tape as per pics.

The Two Towers - 1962 9th impression - small book shop sticker to REP, MAP present at back, Dustjacket not price clipped, minor spine lean

The Return Of The King - 1962 9th impression - loose spine (from page block), minor spine lean, MAP present, some marks to page edges, FEP,REP. Dustjacket not price clipped.

PLEASE also refer to the pictures as these form part of the descripiton by showing general condition of books. Marks, tears, nicks to Dust Jackets.

worth much more than the asking price - priced for a very quick sale

low starting price, this value only likely to increase with the film release (are we getting new LOTR films?)
"

If you look really, really carefully, you may be able to spot the "Marks, tears, nicks" to the dust jackets

Still trying to find out where to get copies, and I have been told that it is limited to 100 copies (about two thirds of these have already been sold).

I agree we are both strange people and were in the room with you.

John Garth's talk today was excellent, and he has produced a booklet called Tolkien at Exeter College, which has a lot of previously unpublished material, pictures and Tolkien manuscript pages from just before WW1.

You may also want to have a look at Longfellow's Hiawatha in relation to a certain bird and the death of a dragon from one of Tolkien's books.

The booklet is mentioned on John's website, and I will try to find out how interested members can buy a copy from John and post here.

Great news

"A FRAUDSTER who sold books with forged signatures of some of Britain’s most famous people from his Hampshire home has been ordered to pay back more than £33,000 of his illgotten gains.

Allan Formhals will have to sell his home in Carrington Lane, Milford-on-Sea, in order to pay back for the “criminal lifestyle” he led while selling books containing the forged signatures of notable figures such as Sir Winston Churchill, Elizabeth I and Oliver Cromwell, a court heard.

The seller has an annoying bit of moving text on the listing stating that it is Tolkien's original cover, no it is not, that now belongs to the Bodleian Library in Oxford, and at the moment is on tour in New York.

A lot of changes were made on the cover, by 1963, from Tolkien's original cover.
