Was this thread intended for everyone to dump their "interesting finds" stories?

Well, here is one for the ephemera lovers out there. This is a unused promotional sticker from 1977...

I don't know exactly, if these are interesting finds, but make your own judgement..

This is a nice little book I won in a quiz 1984. It is a bilingual special hardback edition of Farmer Giles of Ham (one page in english, the opposite page in german), printed only with a number of 19 copies.
The regular edition is a paperback

Here is an other book, I want to share with you.
On tolkienbooks.com it is stated, that the 3rd printing of "The Road goes ever on" was first printed in Germany. But it wasn't the 3rd printing, that was issued 1993, it was only a 2nd. It is an english reprint of the 2nd edition with a translated booklet in addition, containing the "Notes and Translations". So the book itself is an english reprint from 1978, the booklet contains a foreword for the german edition. In the paragraph next to last, Donald Swann says, that he hoped the 9th song "Luthien Tinuviel" will be published recently in addition..

The note is removed and I'm glad that I rendered a service...
Thanks
