Spot the problem, the pictures provided do not show one area of the book

Like all his books this seller describes it as

"VERY SOUGHT AFTER AND COLLECTABLE"

and

"worthy of any collection

would make an excellent addition to any collector / fans collection

The spine has had some attempted repair work done with some white tape as per pics, appears to be ex-libris with some stamps throughout, foxing to page edges and some rubbing to cover. some spine lean.
"

"judge for yourself from pics as a picture paints a 1000 words"
We can't do this as he not provided pictures of the Spine or any pictures showing library stamps

"A VERY RARE CHANCE TO GRAB SUCH A COLLECTABLE EDITION

A TRUE COLLECTORS ITEM

VERY COLLECTABLE AND A GREAT INVESTMENT
"

Sorry, but it is not collectable, or a true collectors item or has any value

"Returns:No returns accepted"

Anyone know why there is an actual actor playing Radagast? Either PJ is taking quite the creative liberty or I missed a chapter or two last time I read The Hobbit!


Radagast gets more of a mention in the Lord of the Rings than the Hobbit, but did not make PJ's movies, so I think your first point is correct, he has to fill up the three films somehow.

Though Radagast is mentioned in the Hobbit, unlike Legolas, Galadriel, Frodo, etc.

Have a look at The Onion Seven Movies to be made from the last 4 minutes of Harry Potter

After being found guilty of Fraud and Forgery, I have put together a list of some of the threads from this forum which deal with Allan's Tolkien Shenanigans, there are a lot more.

It is also nice to be reminded of the sage words from collector on his Allan Formhal's item.

"Trotter, I dont know about ebay, I never was there. But it is very dificult to fake a book or a letter from 1968, I never bought a letter/book looking a simple picture, I need to study them.

I have a "sleeping book" (sic Laura) from Tolkien, 1ed. Blue ink. and it is very real, all you need is to do a study from a handwriting expert survey.

Thanks to everybody, this a very interesting chat

Has some Tolkien items, very very very expensive though, and the books (Farmer Giles, LOTR and Adventures of Tom Bombadil) are not Children's Literature
