This has been pushed back to September 2014 according to HarperCollins, a long wait

Wayne & Christina say it's good, so...

BH

Where did they say this out of interest?


Still can't find any comments from Wayne & Christina?

Wayne & Christina what do you think about this item, having said it is ok, I like backup

It also appears to be the library edition

It looks ok to me.

"This is a scarce first edition of J.R.R. Tolkien's Farmer Giles of Ham complete with dustwrapper.

The book was published in 1949 and is in overall V.G condition. The dustwrapper has a couple of minor closed tears at the top of the spine.

What makes this book very rare is that it is signed and dated by the illustrator Pauline Diana Baynes.

She has written 'Pauline Diana Baynes 49 on the title page underneath her own printed name.

This must be one of her first signatures as she was only 27 years old in 1949 and this was her first of many commissions for Tolkien's books.

Pauline Baynes,to my knowledge did not do book signings. Her signature is very scarce. I have only seen two other books signed by her
"
