- there's another copy for sale here -

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Tolkien-Childre ... |65%3A3|39%3A1|240%3A1318

- this one does look right (though it's reproduced smaller). the lines are generally better; and the left eye in particular looks like it's done by a professional artist; unlike the first example.

Also - the drawings are the same! I don't know if Lee did all his 'elf' drawings the same; but I seem to remember a bit more variety when I've seen him doing it!

Here's a link to a book for sale on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/The-Children-of ... |65%3A3|39%3A1|240%3A1318

- is anyone else unhappy with the drawing (and the signature?) I've seen actual drawings of this kind by Le (indeed, I've seen him doing them) and this one looks wrong.

Check the vendor's other items - there is (or was) an iffy Silmarillion - he'd said it could have been one for Tolkien's approval until he was told that JRR died in 73.

Possibly iffy Lee drawings... Something to watch, perhaps?

It reads:

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers Ltd; 25th Anniversary edition edition (1 Oct 2008)

- but The _Father Christmas Letters_ was first published in 1976; not 1983, so I'm at a loss, too.

A set of LotR which looks exactly the same as the set in this box went unsold the other day - the price was £4.50. Okay, that's a fluke; but a good set can be had for not a lot of money. Add a Silm for around the same price (not hard to do at book fairs) and a copy of TH, and I reckon we're being asked to pay over £300.00 for the box.

Too rich for my blood!
