As I'm located in Germany, I won't make it to any of those event.
Could someone organise me a deluxe copy as well, I would be happy to pay for the expenses!

What happened here? Did I miss something? I have two boxed issues on my shelfs. What are there worth?

Good job. So this was a rewarding aquisition!
I'd be happy to own such a great copy of the book. You won't sell it?

SD Sil came today. Condition is pretty good. The spine no toning, seems like it was stored in a cellar, not in a shelf compared to the smell. But anyway, looks very good on my shelf.

I've been collecting Tolkien books for over 15 years now. I've started with German editions, which I completed a couple of years ago (all in fine condition or even sealed) and went over to the original editions. Normally I focus on very good to fine condition, but in this case I made an exception. And let's face it. This book shows up for a reasonable price only every few years. So you can either wait for the next, or the one after, or you can buy this one and be proud of another gem in your collection.

Yes, I can confirm, that Martin sold it privatly. Price was negotiated and was acceptable. GBP is cheap these days

Great find, even if it wasn't a find at all!
