yes skepticism is always good, but so far I'm having far more fun on this new platform then on all the others together. It feels and acts like a community. For example it is possible to discuss things with the Tsu team and founder and never saw that happen on other social networks + we have managed to gather together tons of money for charity ... which would be attractive to any hobbit out there.

Don't know if any of you is on Tsu yet, if so please let us connect!
It is a new social media platform that is easy and fun. Just like facebook but more simple and sideeffect is that you get paid to be active (ok is just pennies but overall after one month made about 10 $ - so indeed a side effect). However the network is growing fast and is in my opinion better then all other platforms, since the community drives the changes that happen there and not the other way around.

Just 74 days after officially launching, Tsu’s social network and payment platform has eclipsed 2 million users!

Consider these numbers: In 13,148 hours (a year and a half), #Facebook had 3.65 million users and #Twitter just over a half-million (503,000). #Tsu’s 2 million plus worldwide users took just 1,776 hours to capture.

It currently has an #Alexa global rank of 2,408 (ranking 2,332 in the United States) making it the most viral social networking platform in the world!

Guess if you desire to, come and check it out using this invite code:
http://www.tsu.co/TolkienLibrary or just TolkienLibrary make sure to send me a friend request and I'll welcome you and guide you around. But it is fun and hope many Tolkien fans come and join in!

J.R.R. Tolkien-"The Fellowship Of The Rings"-1965-Houghton Mifflin-5 1/2" X 8 1/2"-421 pages-Hardcover Book-With Map- Signed By Author.English writer J.R.R. Tolkien is a towering figure in fantasy literature. He wrote the novel The Hobbit (1937) and the classic trilogy The Lord of the Rings (published 1954-56): highly imaginative tales of elves, dwarves, and wizards in a land known as Middle Earth. The hobbits Bilbo and Frodo Baggins and the wizard Gandalf figured prominently in these stories and became Tolkien's best-known characters. Tolkien was an expert linguist and a longtime professor of language and literature at Oxford University. He was also part of C.S. Lewis's informal group of scholars and writers known as "The Inklings." The three books which make up The Lord of the Rings are The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King... A live-action film trilogy of The Lord of the Rings, directed by Peter Jackson, was a great box-office success; the first film in the trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring, was released in December of 2001, followed by sequels in December of 2002 and 2003. Those films starred Elijah Wood as Frodo, Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn and Cate Blanchett as Galadriel... Tolkien's colleagues at Oxford included the famed poet and author Robert Graves... In 2006 one of Tolkien's sons, Christopher Tolkien, announced the completion of the 30-year editing process for the publication of his father's work The Children of Hurin.The book has been autographed on the title page by J.R.R. Tolkien with a fountain pen in brown.........BOTH BOOK AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.

What do we do?

I have several of such books... they are author copies.
They are either unnumbered or get the initials of those who they are for. Like I have some copies with PC in them.

The Hobbit HmCo 1966 pirated edition?

Do you know the following copy of the Hobbit?

http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/tolkien-book-store/CLP0052.htm

It reminds me of the Taiwanese editions, but is not the same...
Just mentions HmCo on the jacket, printed by Houghton Mifflin and a 1966 date.

Further has something that looks like Chinese characters... but no other info.

The red boards are similar to a Fellowship of the Ring copy I hold, that also shows the same Chinese characters and no further info either.

Is this some kind of pirated edition? The paper is of extreme low quality
and the book is very thin (like the taiwanese hobbit).


Got one reaction so far from Wayne Hammond and Christina Scull:

"We haven't seen this edition, but agree that it appears to be a Chinese pirate."

well it is still up on harpercollins website but you can't find it just by looking under tolkien! http://www.harpercollins.co.uk/Titles/86506/unfinished-tales-(deluxe-slipcase-edition)-j-r-r-tolkien-9780007542925
the site is buggy and so I'm used to books seeming to disappear (most of the times it means they are doing updates and images are coming!)

I can make one... but it is the same set, same box, but with one book extra. Actually looks better then the 4 sets. Saddest part, the courrier they used managed to destroy ten sets (don't know if HC is going to replace the slipcases), otherwhise there are now 90 sets left.

Man I hate shipping carriers who have a lack for what we buy. Too many stories these days.
