"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.

Just wondering does anyone know anything about a Red Slipcase that contains the 6 Horn Book Magazines from 1938?

I have attached photos.

The slipcase does not seem to fit the magazines perfectly and I wonder was the slipcase privately made (possibly by a reference library?) or would it have been issued by the magazine publisher?

Any information would by greatly appreciated?

I just got my copy of Volume 6 last week. I gave up waiting for it to become available on Amazon and finally ordered it directly from WVU. It looks like WVU are only selling it directly now. All earlier volumes are now unavailable on Amazon (except through 3rd Party Sellers).
