This week I received the 1st/4th of RotK, so I didn't order the 'original' edition of Seinte Iuliene after all. Perhaps I will buy it too, but I'm still doubting. I found it for approx. £55 with original cover - not rebound like the one I mentioned and showed earlier in this thread - but it's a lot of money to me...
A photo of RotK is coming, but it's not that special to you guys, I think. (For me it is, as it is my first LotR 1st edition so I'm quite proud of it.)

I got myself a copy too, and there was a post card accompanying it from the secretary with some information. I'll post a photo or scan of it as soon as I can, but here's the text on the back of it:

"This building is very close to 214 Alcester Road so JRRT would have known it well. We (the Moseley Society, I suspect) also look after an ice house and the entrance is very hobbit-hole-ish. JRRT was known to stay nearby with a friend when a teenager so we tell people its the original hobbit-hole."

Thank you for the information. I couldn't check the Companion & Guide, because it's in my student's apartment. But I'll checked when I'm there again.
There was a copy of the booklet on eBay, which I was following (and perhaps to buy), but it has sold today or yesterday. Did someone of you bought it? If so, can you give me quick review when you get it?

Does anybody have a copy of this booklet/pamphlet or has anybody heard of it? It contains a chapter on Tolkien (and his life in Birmingham?).
