I haven't received mine yet - but when I contacted them they told me it shipped 12th Sept. Maybe incorrect information from them.

G'day friends, been clearing some space to show off some of these goodies.

'57 First state set (5/5/3), 60 (8/7/6), union and 2nd Ed set.

Fondness of things in a slipcase, US and UK anniversary sets.

Found a 1st AW in wrapper along with an Unwin 88 set this month.

Welcome to TCG, Rob. You have some nice books there.

I think the only book I really regret never buying is that Super Deluxe CoH.

And the 1957 1st State slipcased LOTR is an absolute rarity.

Thanks everyone, the library is bringing a lot of happiness into my little world.
The biggest challenge is the volume of packing material far exceeds the size of my council rubbish & recycling collection bins.

Was so stoked to find the 1st state box set for a quarter of the price 🐕f is asking on ebay! I approached him with an offer: declined, stating he was going to raise the price even more.

The two books I regret not getting are the super deluxe COH and S&G.

Pretty excited to have got a copy of this :) Among other things, it contains a reproduction of a letter to Mr Joukes.
