perhaps one of them is only "astonishing" or "amazing"....

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.

Hey Elwe,

I have a set of "lightly tanned" dustjackets that just came in from Chernobyl or another slightly 'Hot' spot. You can almost distinquish the black print from the "light tanning". Let me know, an even swap might work out. You know you could also go buy a can of black and a can of gold spray paint and turn them into "DeLuxe" Editions. Slap them in reproduction slipcase, and no one would ever know......

LOL!!
