"10bis. (sorry) Roverandom, bound by Thornton's (the green one, ltd to 10)"

I think the Rebound Roverandom was limited to 25 copies.

My three most wanted would have to be a 1st/1st Hobbit (British) with DJ, 1st/1st complete set of LOTR (British) with DJ, and the proof copy of Smith of Wootton Major on Beren's website.

I would also love to have a handwritten letter or two by Tolkien.

guess i only have 1 item on my wish list these days: "JRR Tolkien Letters to Rhona Beare"...

and maybe some more books from Tolkien's library but i'm actually quit happy with the stuff I got already; but they are always welcome!

1947 English Studies
1913 Stapeldon Magazine
1922 Gryphon
1923 A Northern Venture
1930 Oxford Magazine
Rebound Thornton's Hobbit and Silmarillion (if they exist - not sure they do)
1937 Summer Announcments (and possibly Spring - can't remember) - GA&U Catalogues
Introduction to Old Norse (with DJ)

Hi Beren,

I have a Rhona Beare - perhaps we can work out a trade. :)

So easy to fill your only want! Then what will you do...
