Tolkien Collector no. 33 has been posted to subscribers. We apologize once again for the long delay between issues: life, work, and contractual responsibilities have tended to get in the way.

Since The Tolkien Collector appears so infrequently, from no. 33 it will be offered only per issue rather than on subscription. Details may be found on our website. Existing subscriptions, however, will be honoured, and each current subscriber will find enclosed with no. 33 a coloured sheet indicating which number is the last issue for him or her.

Happy Tolkien's Birthday!

Swann Galleries, New York, will be offering for sale in their 23 January 2014 auction of 20th Century Illustration Lot 77, an unsigned drawing by Frank Frazetta of a hobbit and a warg, apparently a preliminary drawing for a plate in Frazetta's 1975 Lord of the Rings portfolio (house estimate $8,000-12,000); and Lot 148, a drawing by caricaturist David Levine, of Tolkien in the jaws of a dragon, presumably Smaug, made for Esquire magazine in 1966 (estimate $500-750).

This is definitely a library rebinding, similar in spirit to the original Houghton Mifflin binding but not the same. I've seen copies like it offered for sale from time to time.

We put an order through within a minute of the ABE e-mail arriving, but were told "book sold" as soon as it reached our cart.

A long time ago you did give permission for me to reprint the original article online

So we did! Not much will have changed since its original publication (1998), but no doubt something more could be said.
