It looks lovely to me. Signed on all three title pages? Wow! Pity I can't afford it. I'd like to know its story - that is, who it was signed for, and how it comes to be for sale. garm


From this article it looks like it was Pauline Baynes personal copy of the book and some of the other items in the sale were also from Pauline Baynes collection.

This will be an expensive set of books and I'd like to know before purchasing if they plan to bring out a box-set as I'd rather buy that than the individual books. Trotter


What kind of horrific boxset would it be, with 12 volumes? *chuckle* Khamul


Something like this from David Miller and no way is it horrific.

Incidentally Trotter, you selling your other copies? BH


A bit of confusion here, two items mentioned in this thread

The first was a lovely signed 1963 Deluxe LOTR which was to be sold at auction this week but it was unsold and anyway far out of my price range. I only have one battered unsigned set of these books so am not selling them.

The second was the C.T.Onions book with a letter from Tolkien in it (that was the item that I bought).

I have not seen any Diary this year, has HarperCollins given up on Diaries?

I'll probably bring it with me to Moreton, so you can see it then
