Love the fact that Tolkien still did the Football (don't like using this word, but "soccer" for US members) Pools

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Football_pool

and he was very keen on getting "more paper!!", mentions it twice.

I am very pleased to see that he is reminding himself to remember his daughter's birthday (18th June), and it also allows for a year for the card, Monday the 18th June happened in 1956, 1962 and 1973.

Most of the other items are from the 1970's in the auction, so I am guessing 1973 as the date, but that is incorrect as he states to ask Edith about items, sadly Edith died in 1971.


Please note that I have been advised that this card may have issues, and could be fraudulent on another forum

I think this one is quite funny, though not to helpful in what you might get for your $100.

1331 posts in this thread, and I am still amazed by the ridiculous auctions on ebay.

"another collectible book listed by river bank books" for £20.

This item looks to have been nicked from a library

Really looking forward to this from Wayne G. Hammond & Christina Scull.

Open in new window


"Only now can we say that our latest Tolkien project – which has occupied much of our time this summer and early autumn – is The Art of The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. With the 60th anniversary of the first (U.K.) publication of The Return of the King coming next year, HarperCollins asked us for a Lord of the Rings companion to our successful Art of The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. We quickly agreed, then took time to think about what the new book should contain and how we should approach the subject."
