Hi Stu,

I just wanted to make a couple of thing clears, this set was sold in July 2012 (and I thought it had been removed from Beren's site at that time) I think it was probably listed in 2011, so there is the reason for not saying it was the later printing box set, as they hadn't been released (I think) when I listed this set. Also I checked back on my listing, and it was described as Good only in the book and dustjacket condition box on the listing software. When it was uploaded to Berens site, it drops all the extra boxes, and only lists the description and title boxes, which I agree it should not have been listed as Near Fine, completely wrong. I guess I took it wrong in that it was two year old listing, and I thought it had been removed from Berens site. I assume since I have not listed any others of these sets since then, he left it up to at least show what the sets looked like (even with the damage). So my apologies

David

Stu,

Please note that the set of HoME that you found fault with my description is no longer listed on my web site. I have notified Beren that they are no longer available. Also, did I miss somewhere where it said 'rare'. I may have said "hard to find", but certainly not rare. At the time they were listed, they were much harder to find then now after many more were issued by Harper Collins.

Thanks Carl,

I would agree that the last bit is "olts", or at least looks just like the way he wrote. I've attached a sample of his writing, photoshopped the letters together for fun one day. The 's' looks very like his, as well as the 'o' and 't' even with the changes in writing in script.

Hello

A friend recently sent me this photo and asked if I had a clue about the possible language that it was written in. It is in a 1950's Hobbit, and he makes no claim as to who wrote it, but have a look. A lot of the letters are made just as J.R.R. Tolkien wrote them. Anyone able to unscramble, translate, or offer any thoughts on this very interesting item.

Regards,

dunedain
