Don't know if this qualifies as a lucky find or not, but I found this tucked inside a softcover copy of The Silmarillion. I bought the book some time ago, but never noticed the bookmark until now.

Yes, I think that counts as a lucky find, Red! Probably not a very valuable one, but luck doesn't have to be about monetary worth.

Yeh, these small surprises are always the best. Like when you find loose gatherings in your 1982 Super Deluxe copy of The Silmarillion!

I had a visitor to the library the other day with a family Bible, wanting advice on binding repair. It was a nice Bible, late 18th-century, but laid inside (and not known to the owner) was an unrecorded leaflet, in mint condition, from (I think) the early 19th century, offering a special prayer to relieve the people of Kent, England from some terrible disease then afflicting them. You never know what you'll find.

I was happy today to win the HarperCollins Tolkien Family Album (thanks to Khamul for selling me the Houghton Mifflin edition earlier!) for almost the original price on the dust jacket: £13. I was actually a bit surprised to see it didn't go higher, which surely indicates that it is often overpriced.
