generally, I agree with the posts above - with the addition that it's not a good idea to buy a book as an investment. I buy books because I like them.

But to answer one of your questions - Bayntun's is an old-established firm, and the bindings are excellent. Temple is a new company, relatively speaking. I've never had any of my books bound, but they've made some boxes for me, and I'm very satified with their work. Their bindings look good. Ian Barnes is the owner - he's approachable, and very professional.

I haven't seen any of Chelsea's bindings in the flesh, as it were. Years ago, I heard from a book-dealer thT some staff went to work there from Sangorski Sutcliffe when they ceased trading.

oh, yes - well, here's the first paragraph; maybe 3/4 of the way down the page - about where the side-bar on the right ends.

A SLIGHTLY UNEXPECTED GATHERING
Matt Showering
On Saturday 2 September, a Traditional Low Mass was held at the Oxford Oratory to mark the anniversary of the death of world-renowned Catholic writer & philologist JRR Tolkien (+ 1973). The Mass was offered, however, not for the repose of Tolkien's soul – but rather praying for his Cause for Beatification to be opened.

I found this - the article is at the bottom of the page, beneath the comments.

here's an interesting listing on ebay; it includes a copy of Tolkien's translation of Beowulf - I hadn't heard of any copies being signed, nor have I seen a bookplate like this. Too rich for my blood.

Hi there - as you see, I'm not Jeremy, but I hope you'll excuse my popping in. I'd just like to say that I have copies of your posters - they're quite scarce.

I do have a question - I also have a poster of Treebeard which, to me, looks to be in a similar style. So, silly question - did you ever do one of Treebeard?

Anyway; no doubt Jeremy will be along soon. and I look forward to watching your progress. Welcome.
