Julian Bradfield (jcb@inf.ed.ac.uk) posted the following on rec.arts.books.tolkien (alt.fan.tolkien) newsgroup(s):

Those with an interest in the history of Tolkienian linguistics might like to know that, after more than a decade of unavailability, I am in the process of making back issues of Quettar available via lulu.com. The first volume is now ready.

Further information at http://www.quettar.org/

For those interested (or who missed the post) etc

I think you can be pretty certain that priced copies did not originate from Book Clubs. Yes, one or two may have slipped through the net; but Book Clubs would almost always sell copies (regardless of origin or intended market) without prices -regardless of how this was done.

So, while I agree that un-priced copies (clipped or genuinely unpriced) may have come from either market; priced copies almost certainly did not come from book clubs.

Does anyone have any real concrete evidence that Book Clubs regularly distributed books with prices still on them? If not, then I think it can be said with a fair degree of certainty that priced copies are not Book Club (and are therefore trade).

Now, help me come up with an excuse/explanation for that 1982 Super Deluxe Silmarillion I need to buy!

Try finding a signed one though! I'm seriously looking at acquiring a copy (& getting my excuses ready!)... anyone selling?

Exactly the same as the sticker on my Silmarillion Trotter!

If they are all 2nd(edition)/2nd(impressions) then they might attract a bit of interest from the more obsessive collectors out there (last impressions Tolkien had a hand in.) They'll still attract interest from the general collector if in good nick though. Might get between £50-£100 on eBay if just VG/VG. Mabey higher if excellent examples i.e. F/F.

I'm no expert though; mabey wait see what others estimate...
