It is as well that Findegil (and others) have done such an extensive job of documenting Tolkien, or I fear this kind of "previously undiscovered" material would be popping up far more often. Hopefully there aren't too many slipping through the net (although there must be some).

Now that is something to look forward to!

Which means my decision to purchase no more new books after 2014 already has an exception.

It sold, so not a very good shill bid


Yeah, but that happens all the time. I've seen research that suggests roughly 10% of eBay auctions are shilled. Plus, the item can sell, then the seller just opens a no-pay dispute against with the shill account, and it hasn't cost them anything. Not saying that is the case here, but just because something sells, doesn't mean it sold to a real bidder. look how often things pop back onto the market a couple of weeks after apparently selling.

I have to admit, this early bid really surprised me. £100? Really?
