Urulókë congrats for your last acquisitions !
Regarding the new Lord of the rings houghton mifflin's paperback edition, shouldn't this come with a boxset initially?

The individual paperbacks came out in early October. The slipcased set is not due to be released until November 3rd, according to the latest information that I have. I'll post pictures of that when it comes in, too.

Thanks for that info. So I will wait for the boxset to be out.

Here are some of my recent acquisitions
The 1940 Beowulf which is most likely a proof copy, with jacket unpriced, and without the logo on the spine nor the advertisements on the back cover.

A good day's work!

Nice acquistions. Congrats.

Hadn't seen the Road to Middle Earth Proof before. Have to keep my eye out for one of those.

Yes !! :) Thanks.
Regarding the uncorrected proof of the Road to middle earth, I was lucky, was at the right place at the right time. Got it for £40 or so.
