I just find it funny that you guess on everyone's behalf that the follower is not from here, as in my own point of view they probably are, and although they can comment here they probably 'followed' to save numerous wasted trips to the blog or this thread to check for updates.


You can find this out yourself, but your followers name is telco and he posts on the very quiet forum set up and abandoned by HarperCollins (http://www.tolkienforum.co.uk/), not this site. I am still amazed that HC have not killed this forum.

So, for example, you yourself posted it on this thread when the hurin super deluxe post went up. That means you would have had to look at the blog, and if there was nothing new up it would have been a wasted journey, one which could be avoided if you (or others) were a 'follower'.


I used the RSS feed on your site, same as I use for every other website or blog, including this site, to check for new articles or news.

If people don't know about RSS feeds then you can use something like Google Reader (http://www.google.com/reader).

This tutorial may help if you are new to RSS feeds and how to best use them

As regards, the height difference, it does annoy me that they do not match, but I have all six next to each other on the shelf.

Why do you think or assume this is funny? I think you have missed my point, I don't think anyone here will follow you (whatever that means), but that members will post any views on this forum if they are so inclined.

New book up: http://collectingtolkien.blogspot.com ... arper-collins-deluxe.html and can we please get more than one 'follower' for the blog?! Whoever it is looks so lonely all by themselves!


I don't think anyone here is the follower, as any comments from guide members have been made in this topic and not on your blog.

If you fancy branching out from Tolkien books, how about some of these books and ephemera at Sotheby's London in December.

Tolkien may get the same prices in 4-500 years time

I'm happy to double your money if you want to sell.

That's a very good purchase for £5

I bought all of these items on eBay for £20 (free postage), extremely poor listing, all first printings of these particular printings, with dust-jackets in case anyone asks.

I was very pleased with "The Silmarillion", but getting these copies of "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" was a bonus
