Yes Carl, one suspected you might collect them!

I actually just bought XVII before any of you replied after reading Garth's review in TS. It sounds like a very important piece, well worth purchasing & reading. Unfortunate so many are OOP though. What's the point in publishing this stuff & not being able to keep it in print? I appreciate the work the guys who produce all this stuff put in, but why can't these be kept available via POD or something. Carl has managed to keep VT available with the collected volumes of VT, as mentioned.

Jeremy, I'm getting quite a lot of New Post automated emails (because I've selected this preference) which are clearly spam --I assume stuff that hasn't quite made it through the TG filters to actually appear in the forums as spam but which is managing to creep through into the automated email notification function thing. Just thought I'd mention it...

Just a general query as to what everyone thinks about the ELF publications Parma Eldalamberon and Vinyar Tengwar; in regard to both collecting them, and, perhaps more importantly, the original Tolkien content.

Rather than buy individual volumes (although I bought some originally) I've been quite happy just buying the collected volumes of VT --you get all the content, the little bound volumes will probably hold up better over the years, and they can stand nice on the shelf.

Parma Eldalamberon I haven't bought at all. Now, with copies OOP, and with them being quite expensive if you were thinking of acquiring all of them, I'm not that sure what volumes to purchase. Taking my collector hat off for a second, I'm tempted to just go with trying to acquire the issues Neil has up on TolkienBooks as containing original Tolkien content. I've been reading through the last few years of Tolkien Studies, and Parma Eldalamberon is always reviewed quite favourably; & the content does genuinely sound quite interesting --i.e. quite a lot of the material is not just of a philological nature, there's a good deal of collateral legendarium material too.

What does anyone else think? I'm caught between my primary & fundamental interest in Tolkien's writings, and my collector instinct not to start buying up another 'area' which might be quite expensive, and which I may not be able to (fully) complete. Sad, I know. But what can I say...

Are you sure?

Good morning. Flatsigned. No bookplate.
- alamo-books


But how?

GHi. As far as i'm aware it was sent to Chris Tolkein to be signed on behalf of a small library in East Texas.
- alamo-books


Still a bargain to be had, if you fancy the story. Less than an hour to go...

Yeh, I didn't think the signature was very smart either. And, a US CoH flatsigned? --I don't think so. Auction is very short, but, again, not very highly priced I don't suppose. I've queried: no reply.
