Nothing special, but I found these in a bookshop in Queenstown for NZD 5.00 (£2.50). The owner had found them in his stock room a couple of days ago. I missed this one back in 2016, and quite glad to have it.

But what will you do with the extra one?

No idea, but given the price, seemed a shame to leave it behind (though I wasn't game to buy any more of them -- I think there were four).

Finally united with my '42 (upper) and '46 (lower) Hobbits that have been sat in the UK for three years or so...

An especially tatty jacket on that '42 (though the rear and flaps are all complete -- the missing stuff is basically all visible in the photo), but they don't come up often, and they were both cheap.

Yeah, me too. I only had my in-laws bring about 5 books so as to spread the risk a bit. A few more to come (including that deluxe LoTR set) when my wife visits the UK in October.

Had to re-use a scratched-up old DJ protector as I'm out of Brodart, but my £10 UT from a couple of years ago turned out to be better than expected. The book is unread and the DJ actually very clean. Not as good as the one I already had, mind.

Happy to have completed my Oxford English Monographs collection, with dust jackets.
