Dont see many of these at a good price. got a copy myself about a month or so ago.
Shame about the 'stamp' but a good price vs others for sale
Anyone get it?

your comments made me laugh and this image of car boots/flea markets piled high with Tolkien books came into my mind. Well for a second and then the bubble burst.

Price sounds ok - i dont think i would pay that but then again i am fortunate to have brought my set 20+ years ago.They sound in good condition and with the 'Film' approaching I expect all prices will rise for a while now so a shrewd purchase.
Well done

Well done Red- a good find
These seem to sell for a wide range of prices and indeed some on for as much as $300 at moment on a well know auction site. If a first printing you have done super well.

I came accross a whole stack of unused Pauline's narnia map a few years ago and brought them for a £5 each! Sold them and completed my HOME set. O happy days.

My faith in Lucky finds is restored

I have put this under lucky finds as it is for me

Am sure a lot of us have had that 'excited' feeling when you eventually track a book down and successfully buy it only then to have to wait for the post to come?

That happened to me last week. I finally got my hands on a deluxe 1987 Hobbit 135/500. Been after a copy for years without spending high £100's. Finally I was lucky enough to spot one in auction in Ireland.

Placed my bid and low and behold I won it at less than I would have gone up to. It arrived last week and what a lovely book it is. Any of you guys that have one will know exactly what I mean. It has now gone into my top 3 of Tolkien owned book.

The feel and smell of the leather is wonderful and is a real pleasure to own.

With lucky finds seemingly disappearing at moment this came as a bolt out of the blue. For anyone interested I know of another one which will be readvertised next month so keep eyes out if after this edition.

Greetings
What do we think of this bookplate?

I read somewhere that JRR used to use initial R when communicating with family and friends etc but this is the first time I have seen a possible bookplate where he has used the R initial.

Do we believe this if JRR? If not who might it be?

If JRR has anyone else seen/own such a bookplate?

Any thoughts ?
