indeed
I am sure he would throw it in for free if you brought the fireplace at £70,000!

eBay Item #331762944741

Here is an odd item. The postcard found at the back of fireplace. Ok it is addressed to Tolkien and no doubt he handled it but is it worth more than a nominal amount? Not for me but maybe others think differently?

H
thanks for replies
Yep tolerance high on my test books. They are old library copies with lots of stamps and wear so in theory worth very little
Like idea of a heat gun vs an iron

When I get a moment and a fire extinguisher I will give it a go

More experimental then anything else but you are right Khamul mine too have colour differences caused by solvents

Got to be worth is vs throwing away

Has anyone ever tried to remove clear adhesive covers from dust jackets?
If so what was result and how did you do it?

I have a few library books I can test possible answers on pre launching into a laminated purple unfinished tales I picked up.

I read about using a warm iron and a chemical spray !

any brainwaves?

Thanks
