Indeed. Is it a (DM?) custom slipcase with Poems & Stories, & Unwin Hyman H & LR perhaps?

It is indeed! I have the boxes, but much prefer to see those lovely spines. The slipcase is one of David Miller's and I love it!

But you can see the spines with their own original slipcases...

Ah, I thought so. I have first printings of those books; but only LotR is in a slipcase. The others are in boxes.

Must say the DM slipcase looks good, but for myself, I think the original boxes etc are an integral part of the book.

Only a quick post, but anything longer and it won't get done right now!

New book just arrived today!

Still having issues with the blog rotating pics of its own accord - frustrating to say the least.
