H'm. I bought a set like these, but without box and in slightly worse condition last year in Amsterdam, for about 25 Euros. Of course this set will be worth a bit more, but ten times as much?!

Yes indeed - something like that. After I posted I started looking into my Yahoo-groups account. For some reason it had stalled. I've got it working again, but all the mailgroups on which the announcement was made, Lambengolmor, Elfling and Elfscript2, run on Yahoo-groups, so they were all affected. Other cares worritting at my mind, I hadn't noticed that the drip of group mails had dried up.

No fault of the ELF, therefore.

But it may be noted that Julian Bradfield's Tolklang mailgroup doesn't work on Yahoo, but on Edinburgh University servers; it may be barely alive, but it isn't dead yet; although it breathes maybe once a year nowadays.

ITF also runs on its own servers, but that of course isn´t open to the public. It is, however, intended for committees and editors, conference organisers and the like, of Tolkien societies and closely related organisations in good standing, for (among other things) announcing, even in advance, events, publications, etc., so that societies can then pass these on to their members (at the proper time).

ELF forum? Or do you mean the Lambengolmor e-mail list? That's were the announcements always are in the first place, of course. I'm subscribed to that and I haven't seen anything from it in months.

That link to Rateliff's blog is the first sign I got that PE #18 is out. I would have liked to have had the opportunity to pre-order. Is it really asking too much to wish things like these were announced to the usual channels for the discerning Tolkien-community, e.g. ITF, Beyond Bree, TolkienLibrary, this site?

Before the real experts come in, just a few thoughts on the Lewis book ...

1) If the book was in Tolkien's possession, he might well have signed it just there - top of title page. But if so, why would Lewis have signed it? Surely because he gave it to Tollers. But then, he would probably have added a few words to his signature, and he would hardly have used the same pen and ink.

2) Also, how would the book then have got into a school library? Does anyone know what Priscilla's job in Bristol was, and whether she still worked there in 1958 or later?

3) That (sickly blue colour of) ink looks awfully familiar ...
