Tyalië Tyelelliéva is one fanzine that I have been unable to track down.
I have a photocopy of issue 17 only and have never seen an original one for sale. Has anyone been able to contact the editor, Lisa Star?

Available for preorder on Amazon.co.uk

Amazon link

This sumptuous gift set contains a replica of the very rare first edition of The Hobbit, plus a book about the books’s publication history and a CD of previously unreleased archive recordings featuring J.R.R. Tolkien reading from his book. The Hobbit was published on 21 September 1937 with a print run of 1,500 copies. With a beautiful cover design by the author and a coloured frontispiece painting, the book proved to be popular and was reprinted within three months, and history was already being made. The scarcity of the first edition has resulted in copies commanding huge prices, way beyond the reach of most Tolkien fans. In addition, subsequent changes to the text - particularly those to chapter five when Tolkien decided to expand the text to marry it up to events in The Lord of the Rings - mean that the opportunity to read the book in its original form and format has become quite difficult. To commemorate the 75th anniversary of publication, this special edition reprints the first edition, so that Tolkien’s book may be enjoyed in its original form. Included in the box is a CD featuring recordings of Tolkien reading extracts from the book, including more than half an hour of archive recordings only recently discovered and never before released. In addition, a full colour booklet traces the origins of The Hobbit and its publication history, complete with a gallery of artwork and covers for this remarkable book.

Recently i came across this catalog which contains some items that might be of interest.

In the main section of the catalog it has a signed Hobbit and a copy of ongs for the Philologists, but the most interesting thing is the last section containinh books from Tolkien's personal library.

Thirty-two books are listed, most signed with annotations including books given to Tolkien from E. V. Gordon and G. B. Smith.

The annotations are briefly mentioned, no pictures are produced unfortunately.

The catalog is from 2002 and is worth a look.

Terrible...I don't think Tolkien would have approved.

Garm, I'm equally jealous of your signed Artist and Illustrator...it's one of my favourite books and I have been hunting for a signed copy for a long time with no luck!! Nice item

I agree Stu, the free postage will probably go along with the great service..I have been receiving books from the Book Depository within 8 days of ordering them.. never had a problem

I alos hope they honour the prerelease orders that have already been placed.
