Recently i came across this catalog which contains some items that might be of interest.

In the main section of the catalog it has a signed Hobbit and a copy of ongs for the Philologists, but the most interesting thing is the last section containinh books from Tolkien's personal library.

Thirty-two books are listed, most signed with annotations including books given to Tolkien from E. V. Gordon and G. B. Smith.

The annotations are briefly mentioned, no pictures are produced unfortunately.

The catalog is from 2002 and is worth a look.

Terrible...I don't think Tolkien would have approved.

Garm, I'm equally jealous of your signed Artist and Illustrator...it's one of my favourite books and I have been hunting for a signed copy for a long time with no luck!! Nice item

I agree Stu, the free postage will probably go along with the great service..I have been receiving books from the Book Depository within 8 days of ordering them.. never had a problem

I alos hope they honour the prerelease orders that have already been placed.
