First copy I have seen for sale in around 3 years. Anyone ever see a rebound Hobbit or Silmarillion from Thornton's? Do these exist?

My Wish List always seems to grow (no matter how many editions I acquire...)

Some of the most desired are as follows:

1925 Review of English Studies Vol 1 No 2 (Contributions to Middle English Lexicography)
1928 Dialect of the District of Huddersfield (with Dustjacket)
King Edward’s School Chronicle (Various Tolkien Issues)
1918 Spring Harvest
1939 Reeve’s Tale
1947 English Studies
1913 Stapeldon Magazine
1922 Gryphon
1923 A Northern Venture
1930 Oxford Magazine
Rebound Thornton's Hobbit and Silmarillion (if they exist - not sure they do)
1937 Summer Announcments (and possibly Spring - can't remember) - GA&U Catalogues
Introduction to Old Norse (with DJ)

"10bis. (sorry) Roverandom, bound by Thornton's (the green one, ltd to 10)"

I think the Rebound Roverandom was limited to 25 copies.

With regards to the latest forgery:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Signed-J-R-R-Tolk ... t=Antiquarian_Collectible

These books were issued in 1978, some 5 years after Tolkien had passed away. Quite a miracle if he managed to sign them for beyond the grave.

Thanks for your thoughts Trotter. Much Appreciated.

I too thought the Printed Label made it more likely that it was issued by the Publisher but then when I saw the fit of the magazines into the slipcase, I was not so sure.

I did have a search on the web (including the Horn Book Magazine's own webiste) but could not find any information. I am sure I will eventually find a definitive answer.

Many Thanks Again.
