Beren, I know you have been busy with the CoH paperback release party, but have you had any time to check your records to see if these books were sold at the Loome's sale? Whenever you get a chance, if you could let me know, that would be great. Thanks.

Nice find David. Wish I could find a Tolkien book like that lying in some box. I knew a guy that found a first American edition copy of The Hobbit (with the dj) at a thrift store for cents; he ended up selling it a couple years ago for over $10,000.

I do occasionally come across good finds on eBay, Abebooks, or some other place online.

If Bloomsbury has, in fact, withdrawn the letter, why is it still listed on eBay: http://cgi.liveauctions.ebay.com/ws/e ... ewitem=&item=170269890214

It is good to hear that David Miller pulled those other items; it is unfortunate that he purchased them, nonetheless.

Ok, so when I purchased those 4 books, the seller also gave me the following dedication inscription that Tolkien wrote to some person. The dedication originally contained a signature but that portion was cut off and used for other purposes by David Miller. Do you guys think this looks like Tolkien's writing? I have a clear date on it; it was written in June 1973. Not that cool of an item, I know, but better than nothing.
