My brother-in-law (& my sister) moved to Matamata to work on the Hobbiton set in April this year (for 6 months). They've already moved on (or are due to right now, in October) to Wellington (Miramir, where all the studios are). So my guess is that filming is (or was) very much intended to go ahead in NZ early next year...

Well, that's something to genuinely look forward to; particularly more Silmarillion detail! As you've commented before; quite a lot has come to light since 1993 --& clearly there was much compression in the first edition in any case. At least two years you reckon? Still with (further) assistance from Doug? --or under your own byeline only (--or co-authoring with Christina)? Any radical format ideas, or just bringing up to date?

My main focus is The Silmarillion; mainly UK editions. The focus within this is (other than all the various editions out there) UK 1977 copies --variant bindings, variant jackets, review copies, dated copies, copies with marginalia, signed copies, 'pirate' copies, rebound copies, library copies etc etc. Since HoME is closely related textually, I also collect these. Still don't have WotJs or PoME yet!

Other than that I do collect other Tolkien 1rsts (1rst 1rsts as Jlong says): Hobbit, LotRs etc. That besides, I also collect H. P. Lovecraft and a few other pulp & Weird Tales writers; inc. letters (although, sadly, no HPL ones). And, like many others I assume, I have quite a few "books about books": bibliographies, checklists etc.

Here's another example of John's handwriting (in a typically marked Michael book) for you to compare...

It is the same copy; signed & ('but'?) personalised by Priscilla. Orcraider is a v.g./reliable seller; someone just didn't pay up first time...
