Indeed; it was always interesting. There are various stories as to why it folded; and by all accounts it was profit making --so it's a pity it's no longer around.

Cheers for the information W&C!

Well (sorry, answering myself here...) I've found a August 2010 issue (#323)...

BOOK COLLECTOR 2010...

...which is probably quite late. See if I can find a later one...

Anyone know precisely when BMC (Book & Magazine Collector) ceased publication? They were up in the early 300's a few years back (e.g. #309, July 2009 --which I bought), & I just wondered if anyone knew when the last issue was; month & year etc.

I know; £131. I'll happily spend my money on something more worthwhile. I just don't think items like this are worth this much. 3,000 copies is a huge number, for how many of these turn up. It's not like you see tatty copies turning up; all are in pretty collectable condition --so where the hell are they all!? Bah! I say; people shouldn't need to pay triple figures for this.

Very interesting. And it's a HM proof, you say? I've never seen any Silmarillion proofs, as I said --& would like to see some images of it (--perhaps you could email me privately?) Have you seen/heard of any UK proofs? I'd imagine either are pretty uncommon too. Did you pick it up pretty cheap?

That's what I thought you meant. Do you recall one for sale ever (& hence perhaps your thoughts of acquiring photos/images)? --I've never seen one, US or UK, and certainly don't have one. (Something like that would be way out of my price range in any case.) Although, I would have saved images had I seen an auction etc. Sorry I can't be of any help. (Oh Beren? )

When you say "proof copy" are you referring to actual proofs of the pages, or so-called dummy copies?
