A while ago I received a booklet from the 1933 -34 session. Tolkien is listed as an honorary member and his lexture on 'Celts and Teutons - Early Times' is listed.

I have tried to find minutes covering the 1929 session however the 33-34 seems to be the earliest publication from this society. The Companion and guide has Celts and Teutons being published in The Gryphon in 1929 under the title Celts and Teutons in the Early World, but I can't find any reference to minutes being published by the Yorkshire Society for Celtic Studies, although my eyes would only allow a quick flick through the Companion and Guide.

Has anyone come across a copy of the 1929 session or did they not get published?

Plenty of room for you to kip on the floor!

I was just looking at Beren's article again - the building looks huge, doesn't it? Is all that space just for the museum? It's vast!

Let's see - I have a signed copy of THE LORD OF THE RINGS AND OTHER BOOKBINDINGS OF PHILIP SMITH (no annotaions; only one postcard tipped in at the rear), and THE PRIVATE LIBRARY including ‘Understanding the Physical Book-Arts’ by Philip Smith. Mine isn't signed.

I also have a copy of the Sotheby's catalogue for their sale of 10th July 2003, in London. Pages 238-251 consist of what is virtually a full-blown article on Philip Smith's book-bindings, with pp.238-247 dedicated to Smith's 'book-wall' of LotR. There are many first-class photos of the bindings; wonderful. IIRC, the book-wall sold for around £50,000.

Indeed, Smith's LR stuff is pretty interesting. I remember buying a Philip Smith lot from a guy, including: THE LORD OF THE RINGS AND OTHER BOOKBINDINGS OF PHILIP SMITH (Signed; with signed errata notes and 8 annotated postcards), MODERN BRITISH BOOKBINDING (Signed), and THE PRIVATE LIBRARY (Signed and annotated) including ‘Understanding the Physical Book-Arts’ by Philip Smith. They are all very interesting. Maybe I'm an autograph hound too garm?

(Pieter, don't suppose you managed to see Blok?)
