Since my German is not that good: even though the lot description says "Ein Brief mit fünfzeiliger e. Nachschrif", does not the sale actually include three letters (1 März, 16 März, 7 Dezember)?


Not that my German is that good, but I think the lot description translates as follows:

3 Br. m. U. „J.R.R. Tolkien“. Oxford 1. und 16.III. sowie 7.XII.1967. 3 S. kl.-4o. . Ein Brief mit fünfzeiliger e. Nachschrift. Auf seinem Briefpapier. Gelocht.

3 letters signed "J.R.R. Tolkien". Oxford 1 and 16 March as well as 7 December 1967. ["3 S. kl. -4o" ??]. One letter has a 5 line postscriptum on his [Tolkien's] brief paper. Perforated.

[I'm assuming all three letters are typed except for the postscriptum of the third letter]

Thanks, very interesting site and article. Maybe one day I will order something like that for the Dutch first ed of Lord of the Rings. Have to get a duplicate set first though.

Welcome :)

Do you know who did the binding? Do they have a (English) website?

"Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, the educational and trade publisher in Boston, has agreed with most of its creditors to eliminate $3.1 billion of debt and enter a prearranged Chapter 11 bankruptcy process, the company said on Friday.

The publisher has struggled financially for years, laden with debt that was taken on when Education Media and Publishing Group, an Irish private-equity concern, borrowed heavily to finance the acquisitions of Houghton Mifflin in 2006 and Harcourt in 2007.

The company’s trade division has published authors like Jonathan Safran Foer, Philip Roth and J.R.R. Tolkien."
