Come on then- now that it's over did anyone go for any of the rayner Unwin books at dominic winters today.
There were some crackers. The signed Lott went for £24k plus 19% fees!

Other highlights included a uk proof silmarillion and a one off presentation copy to Rayner from Christopher - wow
That's not too mention 2 red Sils numbers 3&4 ,a number1 & no 3signed 87 hobbit, 2ted nasmith sils, and numerous other signed Tolkien books.
Also noticed a Hammond dedicated copy! Bet someone can remember that?
I have got some pics I will post when have chance.

A feast for sure and some nice prices to match.
Well done to anyone who won any.

Oh dear, I missed all of that... damn it. That all sounded terribly good. Was there a printed catalogue btw? But, ho hum, I'm sure they all went for silly money anyway, so who am I kidding thinking I could have bought any of it.

Please post pictures & prices if anyone has them.

Holy crap! Lot # 518!!!!!!!!!!! --that was a Silmarillion collectors dream. Everything you'd ever dreamed of all piled together in one auction! Totally mindblowing.

Damn, damn, & more damn.
