For those interested, I see another copy of Eorclanstanas is available on Abebooks (no affiliation whatsoever with the seller): https://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=21753127053

Very impressive Hobbit collections, Stu, Trotter and Berelach!

Onónion, if Doug has no plans for a book on this, then you can publish your own book now, as could anybody else


A quick glance on Abebooks and Amazon shows me I missed my chance... Editions with two different, highly inspirational front covers have already been issued and are available on POD basis. :(

All joking aside: I would be more interested in the co-text of Anderson's possible edition (as the primary text itself has already been circulating some time now)!

Nice to see an actual scan of the volume. Thanks for sharing, Trotter! Coincidentally, I sent an e-mail to Douglas A. Anderson earlier today, inquiring about the current status of his edition of A Spring Harvest, of which sporadic reports have been circulating since ca. 2012.

Perhaps a custom rebound copy of a first impression copy? B/w illustrations, font looks like a bold look-a-like of the original, the title and the dragon-motif appear to be gold-stamped onto the boards (although it's hard to tell from this picture)...

Although still different from the book shown, this clamshell case comes to mind as an example: Open in new window


(Trotter: sorry about the mess-up, working with very slow internet and accidentally deleted my post instead of editing it...)

I'd be interested in purchasing a black/red one, if you ever plan selling some to the TCG members

It's a shame they went through with the awful 3D-picture on the front of the box, it gives the whole a rather cheapish look... Nevertheless, looking forward to reading the complete lecture on dragons!

Congratulations! Would have bought it myself, if I had not bought so many books already recently...

At £65 this is a reasonably priced copy of Angles and Britons:

Hope you are well, and getting better by the day, Deagol. Take care!

I have taken some more detailed pictures and can e-mail these if you wish. Just send me a pm with your e-mail address.
The Medium Aevum reprints are in the publisher's binding. No need to credit me, I'm happy to contribute to your excellent website.
