Thanks Trotter
appreciated

I must have missed the other advance Sil when nothing in header to suggest it was anything other than a standard copy.

Note to self: Check every Sil listing to make sure

Interested indeed !

Been after an advance copy of the Sil for ages and so throw in the interesting book plate as well - too good to resist.

Ok cover not great but when all said and done its exactly the same as a Billings copy which will cost extra £5 tops if I want to change it.

I really wouldn't like to lose a book trying to get £10 or £20 off the price if you want it. I can only recall seeing 1-2 of these in years and have never seen a Tolkien library bookplate therefore £40 good value in my eyes.

Need to do a little research on it so if anyone has any ideas would welcome it.

Did the Tolkien Society have a library somewhere in 1977 ?
or
Has someone just made this up and in which case why?

You see hours of entertainment for £40 !

Guess answer depends on what you are after as Stu mentioned.

I have always used Mark Terry
http://www.facsimiledustjackets.com/cgi-bin/fdj455/index.html

For first impressions of better know books. choice is limited but quality good and not OTT postage from US to UK.

I did enquire once re getting more unusual copies privately as it were. Firstly you obvious need a good copy to scan and assuming you dont own it that may prove problematic and then of course the costs to print just a few even are high making it in my opinion just not worth it

Which ones are you after?
