Hey Beren, you weren't the only internet bidder. I know I had to get up earlier than you to bid on them!! Probably dropped out of bidding earlier as well. Someone really really wanted them!!

I'm sure a lot of you have noticed the 2nd UK Impression of the Hobbit that is listed on ebay. Also some of you may have noticed that some or most of the photo's were taken by myself some years ago. The link to the auction is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/280724837525? ... _trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

The reason I'm posting this notice, the seller indicates the book is in the original cloth with repairs to the spine tips. Then the photo's of mine, show that book, but not the exterior. The photo's that have been added after my request show a fully rebound copy, which also appears to have been one that I had rebound, by the small JRRT monogram on the spine versus the runes. I just wanted to point out that something is very wrong on this auction. It may be legit, but something is a bit hinky. The seller has not answered my questions about whether it is rebound or not, says to read the description (mine) and then goes and posts photo's of the fully rebound copy. Just wanted to warn anyone who might be considering bidding on this auction. Photo's of the original 'repaired' cover are attached.

I am sure Peter would not mind, so I am going to upload a photo of the 4th Hobbit and dustjacket. Has a couple of areas with some loss, but a very nice copy.

Also I've added a few few photo's of different copies of the 3rd Book Club Hobbit. I don't have photo's of one that was the best of all of these, but a gentleman purchased it from me before I was able to take photo's one day, much to my regret. But thought you might enjoy seeing the dustjackets on these. I don't believe any of these are the one in Peters Collection.

Hello, I was curious if anyone noticed the 'short' 7th imp Fellowship in this set listed on ebay,

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... &ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

I remember reading in The Tolkien Collector that some shorter copies had been seen, besides the 2nd & 3rd Fellowship. This is the first one I had actually seen photo's of, and thought someone else might be interested in noting it. Fairly unusual I do believe.
