I have put this under lucky finds as it is for me

Am sure a lot of us have had that 'excited' feeling when you eventually track a book down and successfully buy it only then to have to wait for the post to come?

That happened to me last week. I finally got my hands on a deluxe 1987 Hobbit 135/500. Been after a copy for years without spending high £100's. Finally I was lucky enough to spot one in auction in Ireland.

Placed my bid and low and behold I won it at less than I would have gone up to. It arrived last week and what a lovely book it is. Any of you guys that have one will know exactly what I mean. It has now gone into my top 3 of Tolkien owned book.

The feel and smell of the leather is wonderful and is a real pleasure to own.

With lucky finds seemingly disappearing at moment this came as a bolt out of the blue. For anyone interested I know of another one which will be readvertised next month so keep eyes out if after this edition.

I don't have one. But if you're going to post details of where it will be available here, I don't think I'll bother!

Found this the other day in one of the local thrift shops while trolling for old books - a poster of Middle Earth illustrated by Pauline Baynes.

Red, how much was your poster?

Picked it up for $5. Haven't had a look online yet to see what it might be worth. I like it as it is the same artwork as found on the first Canadian paperback editions of the trilogy published by Methuen (as opposed to the Remington artwork on the American, Ballantine editions which came out at the same time).
