Just got my two Caitlin H's in the post today from BD; very nice looking books, although I'm still not too sure about the drawings themselves...

I got my signed standard edition today, and I like it more than I expected to, to be honest. Some of the pictures do have a certain charm to them. Interesting that no printer is listed (so presumably printed in China).

Question: Leave "Signed by Illustrator" sticker on the front or take it off? I'm tempted to leave it on, even though it will inevitably discolour the cloth underneath as the glue changes. I figure it is like the price stickers on early HoME editions - it is a sign of originality and "untamperedness".

Anyone who goes to the new (and not-very improved) tolkien.co.uk site will be presented with a banner that offers the Catlin Hobbit signed. Be aware that this appears to be erroneously associated with the deluxe version, but it is actually the standard version that they are selling signed. Usual Harper Collins website shenanigans :)

But the Hobbit was first published in 1916 wasn't it???

In the good old days, you could use an anonymous proxy in the UK to get around their price-discrimination (you just needed to use the proxy when adding the first item to the cart, not when paying). Nowadays they don't allow any proxies.

Yep, rather than move to an honest and open pricing model, they banned proxies and continued with the 'Free Shipping' lie.

For some reason, it doesn't come up under Fiction anymore, nor does it appear when I search "Unfinished Tales." I figured it was just some sort of glitch - hope to add it to the shelf in December!


Stuff randomly appears and disappears off the Tolkien.co.uk site all the time. It is fundamentally broken - I wouldn't worry about it!
