I have bought one, they also claim that the 4 volume The J.R.R. Tolkien Collection is sold out.

I will list the impression numbers when I get the set.

John D. Rateliff has posted about the new December 2012 UK EMPIRE film magazine. Most of the magazine is about the PJ film, but it also includes an article on Tolkien and a photograph of Tolkien that I was not familiar with.

This is a John Wyatt photograph taken in February 1968.

Tolkien is wearing glasses and holding The Adventures of Tom Bombadil.

You can see the location at the end of the BBC Tolkien in Oxford documentary at about the 24 minute mark, Tolkien was probably photographed shortly before or after this section of the film.

The suit claims at least $80 million in damages from unauthorized merchandising of the Tolkien books.

Mere weeks before the release of the long-anticipated film version of The Hobbit, the estate of author J.R.R. Tolkien has sued the film's producers claiming they are overstepping their rights when it comes to merchandising the property and The Lord of the Rings.


Lawyers must love these cases.

This is now at nearly £80 with 50 bids, and still 1 day to go, I hope that shill bidding is not taking place

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/The-Hobbit- ... ks_UK&hash=item416e3189b7

Get this bargain, or as Khamûl pointed out, instead of being lazy, buy one of the other numerous copies on ebay, such as this one for the same price as it was originally sold at.
