Laurel, can I contact you privately (via PM function on this forum) for some images? Was it that £414 copy you bought? Like you I'd like an idea of how many were signed. Unlike other CT books, these ones are flatsigned; I assume CT did this in person at GA&U's offices.

Yes, in this title, the jacket does carry the incorrect ISBN. The copyright page is as below. The 2nd impression employed a line sequence (e.g. 23456789) --so if you see this: watch out, it's probably a 2nd impression (-don't have an image of this, sorry).

I gave an overview of prices recently in another thread.

UK HOME Hardback Reissues

Hope this helps.

Could you provide more detail? What book is it? (provide a link if you can); what are the two ISBN's?

I bought an identical copy, with same note & same price etc. It was discussed in an old thread; think I posted pictures. Will find the link in a bit...

Aye, I've had a look. Few initial thoughts...

I think collecting generally is of interest on its own. While, as you said, there aren't a great deal of sites/blogs with nice photo's, there equally aren't many sites detailing the motivation behind collecting --in this case Tolkien.

I think you could become quite bogged down on the detail of particular editions you've purchased, rather than focusing on (perhaps) why you bought a particular book, and (I think often under-discussed, but central to all acquisitions) the economics behind the purchase.

With straight facts it's inevitable that people will read and simply find fault with the 'facts' you detail; noticing errors and spurious claims. You might be better focusing more on your own opinion, rather than quoting the opinion of others. Also, once it has been up & running a while, it will be quite interesting to see how your own personal collecting has grown (not necessarily the collection itself); how your opinion of things has changed; how your collecting methods have been modified etc.

Also, if you do quote, people might want to see references. And, another idea, you could open another thread here (suitably titled) and update the forum of new entries on your blog; in the same way Parmastahir does with his long-running Tolkien Calendar Collecting thread in the Calendar section of the forum. (Have a look.)

I'll be reading it...
