Seems to be the 1991 Signed Limited (250) One Vol Alan Lee Deluxe Edition. LOL!!! £5000 is a bit of a stretch. More like £500. Still, nice bonus for Oxfam.

I recently found an original School Register (January 1909 term) for King Edward’s School in Birmingham. It lists names and address of pupils for that term. JRRT and his brother Hilary are listed along with their address and of being under the care of Fr. Francis Morgan. Not of any bibliographical significance, but I thought it was a nice early item of Tolkien Memorabilia. It is a small softcover book, bound in dark blue soft leatherette with Gilt Titles.

Metapraxis, You probably got copy number 3 or 4. My order was at 10:39am and I got copies 5 and 6. Good Luck!

Khamul, Well I still have not taken the books out of the shrinkwrap yet, but if the numbers on the Shipping Labels do indeed match the books, then it looks like I got copy number 5 and copy number 6.

So it looks like Harpercollins probably did distribute the books based on the sequence in which they were ordered.
