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.

This text starts on the third line of page 66 in Tolkien's essay On Fairy-Stories in the book Essays presented to Charles Williams (Oxford University Press 1947).

"In the world of Special Collections it may be said that some books are born rare, some achieve rareness, and some have rareness thrust upon them. The last is the case for the unassuming blue pamphlet titled Songs for the Philologists, which recently made its way to the stacks of the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library."
