Blimey, this one is looking tired for one that is a couple of years old. I hope a lot of people read it, rather than it just having been chucked in a tumble drier.

I'm lost; what's the Tolkien connection with the watch?


It is the one he used when on secret missions to Germany during WW2. It was this watch that allowed him to single-handedly win the war, whilst still being back in time to catch up on marking his students' papers.

And verified by Dr. Radwell, a member of the "American Institute of Forensic Examiners"..... Which doesn't *seem* to exist. Maybe he means the ACFEI, but you would think he would know what it was called, if he were a member.

I hate autograph sellers with a passion. They sell products that usually have no provenance, that we are supposed to accept as being legitimate, because they are "experts in this kind of thing".

Thanks for posting up the clearer picture. I think that shows it is indeed conclusively blue. The fact that the text on the back of ROTK remains green rules out it being an issue with the photography, I think.

Another mystery!

As an aside, the difference in DJ colour between the TT and the other two books shows a distinct lack of effort on behalf of the printers. The 14/14/16 impressions match perfectly. Something obviously went wrong when they switched to the little man in a circle on the spine.
