I think if anyone wants any of this stuff the seller is pretty willing to sell; I have his email address if anyone wants to contact him privately. I actually advised him to list most of it here on TolkienGuide, if he couldn't be bothered with eBay. But he's (as stated) split the original lot into smaller lots; whether this will help shift the stuff, I don't know. I'm not sure if this is just the tip of the iceberg, or as good as it gets. He doesn't seem to have a list of everything he wants to sell as yet.

Now now Trotter, you'd be showing off too if you had a first edition of the 2nd printing! Did that come after the second edition of the first printing?

My internet connection is crawling so I didn't look at any of the pictures properly. All I noted was the book count: 360. Think he might want to get a few more of those book things. Tolkien was an academic & a writer. Although, he may have made a few swords & the like; I don't recall...

It's not really my spare --& I think it has some unsightly writing inside; names, signatures, doodles etc. But, if it's quite good --I'll get back to you. The recipient certainly doesn't need two!

I'm actually starting to find it a bit depressing; anything even slightly appealing to collectors is going for hundreds --mostly, I guess, to bookdealers. And some books, that you just want to read (like Rayner's Remembrancer), are going for more money than I'm likely to spend on any book ever! Other more desirable editions are just totally unaffordable, & I don't think I'll ever be able to acquire these books. Which, purely from a research point of view (if that's not too grand a term for examining these books), is really annoying.
