So it's not going to match the recent deluxe editions of LR, H and CoH? That is a shame. I know of a lot of people who want to complete their sets.

I hope that this cloth and leather edition is of better quality than previous HC attempts, which have been a little disappointing when compared with old Unwin editions.

This site was down when I was searching the other day.

http://www.bfdc.co.uk/

Type tolkien into the search box and there are LOTS of first day covers - I was going to mention them at TolkienBooks, but have chickened out - they are a website on their own!

I am looking for information on Tolkien-related stamps issued in the UK by the Royal Mail, especially First Day Covers issued in 1992 and 2004.

Does anybody know what was issued?

If you own any some scans would be appreciated.

Just noticed that Jeremy has a copy of the original publication at Rown's Books - at a very reasonable price as well - the other copies for sale at the moment are over $1,000.

I will have a think about how to offer alphabetical and chronological options. You have a good point there.

One of the pieces of information I have entered for each item in the database is the section of Wayne Hammond's bibliography it fits into, i.e. A, B, C , D, E, F.
My original idea was to include a drop down menu on the gallery page that would allow you to filter what was displayed. I played around with it for days but couldn't get it to work properly. I didn't have many entries in the database at the time, so I might revisit the idea and have another crack at it.

Thanks for the offer of assistance - I will bear it in mind - working with php and phpmyadmin has been quite a step up from good old html, so I'm a bit out of my comfort zone.

PS. The package of goodies arrived - great stuff, thanks!
