Hello All,

Sorry to have been out of contact, it appears that Cox.com or Cox.net has had a server issue which shut down my dmiller@southwind account and another account as well. The info@TolkienBookshelf.com email seems to be fine, as it is off of a completely different server, which handles my web site. I am just now getting email from last Friday and have been informed that it may take days before all the email has been forwarded, and that only 55% of the accounts are receiving their email at all. So my apologies to all, absolutely nothing anyone can do about it at this point. If I have not answered your email, it is because I have not received it yet, and will answer as soon as possible.

Happy Holidays,

David

I received this enquiry thru my web site, and was unable to help this gentlemen. Here is his question,

"I kindly like to ask you about a book that I saw in the Bristol public library. Unfortunately nobody there could tell me the name of the book and I cannot go there and take a look on my own because I live in Switzerland. It is a kind of compilation of Art work of Tolkien editions (Lord of the rings and/or The Hobbit including covers of these books) from all over the world. I remember illustrations of the editions of Russia, Japan, Hungary, Czech Republic, the Netherlands, France, some Scandinavian countries etc. So it really showed a big variety of international illustrations of Tolkiens work. The format of the book was approximately around A 4 and a few centimeters thick. It was not an illustrated copy nor was it Art work by Tolkien himself (maybe it contains a few of his drawings though)."

Any help would be appreciated

David

Here was a lucky find from ebay last Sunday night.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/230825756161? ... _trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

A nice set of early 1st Editions in very nice condition. Price was ok, but in looking thru the photo's I saw something quite interesting. As you can see in the photo of the dustjacket on the 5th impression Fellowship. No impressions noted on the dj. Just received it yesterday, and it turned out to be a true 1st impression dustjacket. So that dj will fit nicely on one of my extra 1st Fellowships that lacked a dustjacket.
