I'm not sure about this one - what do others think?

hmm... looks like some folk out there think they can become 'instant' collectors just because they have money to spend. There's more to it than that.

Beren, are you saying there were only 500 copies of the Silm, not 1,000? I hadn't heard that. It would explain why this book is very hard to find.

I don't have a copy of the Silm; signed or unsigned; though I would very much like one. But I do have a copy of the Hobbit: one of the first 100, signed by CT. I also have one of the Methuen Silmarillions, bound in publishers' leather - and it has a bookplate which is inscribed: 'with gratitude, Christopher Tolkien'. nice!

- well, the auction finished on Dec. 2nd, that is, the same day as the first post in this thread. We can't be that quick, can we? >g<

I've had the same response from sellers; usually no reply; sometimes 'oh, thanks' but no real change.
