Khamul,

Yes, it is true. One an the same. I thought a name change was a long time comin', I'm not particularly good at coming up with names for myself and was never very happy with the former. We'll see how Elwë works out. I imagine it will go quite well, until I become consumed by my lust for a Silmaril, and ultimately ensnared by the doom of Feanor! (We'll focus on the good times, for now though.)

Regards,
Steve (my real name )


I think Khamul is already consumed by a lust for a Silmarillion, and ultimately ensnared by the doom of Feanor in collecting Silmarillions

Michael tends to write in his book the name of who gave it to him (in the MHRT book that I have, he wrote it was from Daddy), so I think he did the monogram and it represents Christopher.

The thing that gave it away for me was that Tolkien had not signed the map and the postcards as well, schoolboy error.

I know that Tolkien owned a Morris car in his early life, but we have conclusive proof that he also owned one of these (to get to the year 2000 for book signings).

I'm still interested in working out when HarperCollins will sell out of this book, but am amazed that they allocate the numbers (out of 500) at random, when you buy the book.

Elwë recently sold #490 on eBay and bruffyboy in his blog (http://collectingtolkien.blogspot.com ... super-deluxe-edition.html) bought #379 from HarperCollins last year. I just bought another copy from them (with the 30% discount) and got #254 this week.

Beren was asking for questions for David Brawn, one must be that for future limited editions, buyers expect some consistency in distributing the editions, but this does not appear to happen!

It refers to Royd Tolkien, great grandson of J.R.R.
