Last I checked you were keeping your books on your car roof, not in your cupboard!

Nah, I switched to buckling them into the passenger seat and taking them for rides... :)

I'm still waiting to hear from HC - their customer service certainly isn't too hasty. If they won't ship to me, are there individuals or bookstores in the UK that might ship the item to me (either I could order it to them or they could order it) for a small fee (on top of the shipping costs). Obviously, I would want it to be secure on both sides and not get scammed.

Beren - I sent you an inquiry on your website and am still waiting to hear back...



Do you have any friends in Canada? That might work as they would - I believe - ship to Canada (for 5 pounds) and then you could get it forwarded from there. I know Canada post is a bit expensive, but it still might be your cheapest option.

When you first typed that Morgan I wondered what you were talking about!

Yip, £750 would have been a little steep for just a plain old First Edition. It's still steep for a book that was bought for £268; assuming this is the same copy. That price, in itself, was pretty high for eBay, based on previous auctions. But, you could make an offer...

To be fair to the vendor (not that I like being fair), purchase price doesn't really have to be tied to selling price. I would just be questioning whether it would be worth getting one CT signed book this way or getting three copies of the signed SD CoH for the same money.

Not that I'd ever want 3 signed SD CoHs.

Oh wait... looks in cupboard.... D'oh!

Only ever bargains from this particular vendor. Still, making these books available is a great service to the fan base.:)

Well, perhaps, but in this case I think Tolkien is dead on. The Dunsany story, e.g., (which is short and freely available on the web) really is _awful_, and its final paragraph truly execrable.



Yeah, I expect it was, but it does seem to be a common theme when he writes about the work of others. Or of course ot may just be that I make more of a mental note of certain types of comment and my memory tends to skip over the others. I'll have a re-read of Letters, etc at the weekend and see if I am imagining it.
