Did anyone here buy this? The TS library bookplate was what really interested me about this auction; it's not something I've seen before. Not interesting enough to pay £40 for it though...

Saw it before it sold.

Toyed with the idea of buying. Would have if the dustjacket was in better condition.

In the end, I decided to put in a best offer (which I did) but it sold soon after.

Interesting enough though.

That's basically exactly what happened to me. I'm pretty fickle about DJ condition & the photos provided no evidence that this was a decent copy. Plus, £40?! Too much.

Interested indeed !

Been after an advance copy of the Sil for ages and so throw in the interesting book plate as well - too good to resist.

Ok cover not great but when all said and done its exactly the same as a Billings copy which will cost extra £5 tops if I want to change it.

I really wouldn't like to lose a book trying to get £10 or £20 off the price if you want it. I can only recall seeing 1-2 of these in years and have never seen a Tolkien library bookplate therefore £40 good value in my eyes.

Need to do a little research on it so if anyone has any ideas would welcome it.

Did the Tolkien Society have a library somewhere in 1977 ?
or
Has someone just made this up and in which case why?

You see hours of entertainment for £40 !
