I didn't know this feature was available. Quite handy. Thanks!

Beren,
You have quite an impressive collection and nice find. You sure know how to make a fellow Tolkien collector jealous. :) Smith of Wootton Major is my favorite Tolkien tale (other than the LOTR). I wrote my MA thesis on it, and I'm teaching it in my Tolkien/Lewis class this semester.

Is there any easier way of purchasing this than through TS? I live in the US and $30 for surface mail seems a bit expensive. Is anyone in the US selling it? Also, why are these proceedings so expensive (they're not even HBs)? The cost reminds me of Drout's Tolkien Encyclopedia. I eventually picked up a copy of it by combining my Barnes and Noble membership with a Barnes and Noble gift card & a 50% off coupon. If I could only find a deal like that I might buy this set. :)

So, I'm pretty sure three of the books are from Tolkien's library (the ones once owned by David Miller). I contacted David Miller and he had this to say:

"Yes, I can confirm the sale of the 3 books (from Loome) to Greg Miller, and the small inscription portion was a gift to him as well. I'm afraid that I
was unable to find one of the 2 page catalog's from Loome, as I purchased mine thru abe.com as Loome was listing them online. As well as I can remember, the 3 books cost me slightly less than $2000."

Here is a picture of the endpapers of the books before the signatures were removed.

I uploaded a copy of the inscription with the original signature. What do you guys think?
