I have to admit, I don't have a separate Tolkien book count; just a reasonably easily calculate-able, total book count --but that in itself is a big mix (obviously) of (mainly) Tolkien, H. P. Lovecraft, and "Books about Books". So, in summary, I don't know off-hand. In any case, nothing like the nonsense figures banded about by a few of your posters Wellinghall! --'6000' I think I read; crazies! Like most people I'd probably have many more books if economics allowed; & if I had a bigger home...

Worry me!? I have to admit, I don't see a great deal in the copy I have. If there is any ridge it is very, very, very slightly visble. Just the merest hint of... something. It would not be visible in a photograph if I were to take one though. Not that it matters a jot, but you could, Ballboy, post a photograph here...

I asked the seller to post images of the letter yesterday (or send me an image); clearly they've been pretty quick --& Trotter too!

I've also had a friendly email from [removed-BH] in regards to the seller's claims. I'll see what he says about the letter, which wasn't available to read yesterday when I emailed him. Anything pertinent will be posted here first.

It does just look like a rebound copy of the pb. Wayne might be able to comment on more recent 'special' bound copies of various editions. I'm pretty sure some 50th Aniversary editions of LotRs (standard or deluxe --I don't recall) were bound in full leather for a select few i.e. Wayne & Christina, Christopher, & perhaps various other folk involved in the publication. So there are 'special' editions out there; doubtful whether this is one though...

I'm never that impressed by this sellers auctions, but this is a sensational claim.

J.R.R. Tolkien 1st LORD OF THE RINGS EXCLUSIVELY BOUND!

I don't have the 1968 pb; does this copyright page match the pb 1st printing? Basically can anyone, with a few more copies to check than myself, confirm what edition this is...

Andrew, are you talking about the dummy copy you just posted about? (--that I'd like in my collection!)

Dummy Silmarillion

I assume not, as it's not cloth: yes/no? It looks like the usual paper-covered boards.
