Interesting; thanks for posting Trotter.

I'm always curious as to what permissions are sought or given for publishing such things. I think it's been mentioned here before, in regard to the publishing of extracts only & also for auction houses to show letter(s) content simply by the fact that they've photographed them; the content of Tolkien's letters, regardless of who owns them, resides, from a copyright perspective, with the Tolkien Estate; does it not? Would permission have been sought here? Or is the content too redacted &/or insignificant? Just curious...

What about it?

The seller says:
Also, the cover is covered again with a protector as you can see, leaving the cover underneath in excellent condition with no rips.

What else do you want to know, besides why it looks like a photocopy?

Having dealt with Mark Terry at Facsimile Dust Jackets L.L.C. I would recommend him if he has the jacket(s) your after. It might be worth enquiring if you don't see the DJ you're after though, as Mark has only a fraction of his scanned jackets up on his site. The last time I emailed him I think he said he had about 35,000-40,000 scanned jackets & only about 8,000-10,000 listed online. He travels the world in search of the best examples to scan, so I've no doubt, if we're talking Tolkien, he's scanned some of the best examples surviving.

I've no real idea of the technical quality of his reproductions (he went into a lot of detail regarding paper stock & scanning & printing technology), but the one I received was excellent. Also worth noting is that his facsimile jackets are marked as such; so they'll not be mistaken for well preserved originals. I liked that he did that, & had done for the very beginning.

Although you'd already said (to me), it's still a little sad to hear this Steve. Good luck with the sale anyway; better to not let it drag on, as you say, if it's no fun (&/or profitable) anymore.

I hope you have more fun in the future with just collecting!
