I don't have anything super fancy to show off this week other than in this day and age I got this 1/1 EX+ Silmarillion for $15... shipped lol. For what I see people paying for them recently I felt like I won the day! The Hobbit is my 3rd Longmans but my first 1/1. Enjoy!

Received the Klett Kotta author-illustrated Silm today. Appears, like their LotR, to be another good quality item. Obviously more expensive (RRP 88 EUR)than the UK trade (52 EUR), but also correspondingly better. Still contains a bunch of irrelevant pictures, but can't blame 'em for that.

New York Release CoH. Red blocks added just to avoid any relatively hi-res bookplate imagery being inadvertently made available.

Nice Stu ! The genuine ones are not so easy to find.
And congrats Éarendel !

Indeed. I've seen quite a few fakes for sale over the years. I don't think you can be sure about one of these until you see it in person and look at the plate under magnification. I'm definitely happy that this is a legitimate one. Most of the fakes I have seen are pretty obvious copies, but I don't doubt there are also competent ones out there.

Congrats Stu and Eärendil!

I realized I hadn’t shared anything recently - here’s a shot of the “recent arrivals” prior to being shelved. That Amazon 3:2 sale tempted me!

Very nice. I’ve just ordered that updated Tolkien at Exeter College myself.

Thank you, @Huan68 and Urulókë! I was not aware of this updated publication.
