The Michael Tolkien item is definitely legitimate.

Although I haven't seen this particular item, orcraider has sold two Michael Tolkien items (on eBay) very recently both of which I had offered to me privately from a reputable PBFA/ABA book dealer. I know this dealer sold one or two through eBay, back in late 2007, and presume orcraider bought a few of these at that time. That aside, orcraider is an honest and reliable dealer; to be highly recommended.

Those careless Tolkiens!

That said, I think everybody is genuinely looking forward to what you two reveal in late March. No pressure...

Just in case any of you had missed the email, or not followed the links. The HarperCollins 40% sale doesn't have that much in it of great interest (I'm sure most have everything of interest here already), but the Rateliff boxset The Hobbit, Mr Baggins and the Return to Bag-End is there; and reduced by 40% that would make it only £30 (with free postage within the UK). Quite good for a boxset I think (always popular with eBayers!), which I assume still has 1srt/1rst's in it (although maybe not...)

Indeed, Findegil wins the Best Wedding Present Ever prize hands down. What a great story...

Now now Holford, you have plenty of nice Tolkien items already I'm sure. Plus, I'm positive this isn't all you've had a close look at in recent months of a Tolkien nature.

If signed Tolkien books can go for £50K+ (although exceptional), then I think a piece like this for £30K-£50K is pretty good. Interesting to see what price it goes for.

Any reason their selling Deagol?
(Garm) Where is it going to end up do you think? (Bodleian?)
