These don't often show up for this price (the BIN but especially the opening bid).

There are some old Orcrist issues available:

This issue is probably the most noteworthy for collectors: http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=51310

Thanks for that! I had already bought two issues I wanted last night, but somehow missed (or he hadn't listed yet) #8, the final Orcrist issue that is incredibly hard to find. Just went back and added one of those to my order as well.

These are really good fanzines, for those into that sort of thing - started and shepherded by Richard C. West, a noted scholar in the Tolkien field. The club is still active today!

While I am not really an LP collector, I have always liked the BBC radio dramatization artwork and this album cover is a very nice example of it - at a good price!

Looks a nice set and maybe get at a reasonable price. Worth a double check first impressions of this printing though

If anyone is trying to assemble a set (as I was) --I have a spare 1974 TT (this is the 8th --not sure why you'd want this impression! ) & a 1973 (7th) RK.

I must admit, with books like these that have no great significance, I don't tend to worry about the impression, it is more down to getting nice condition copies with that particular style of dust-jacket. I think I paid about a pound each. I paid a bit more to get the slipcased set with these wrappers.

I've never seen a copy of The Hobbit like this re-cased, have you?

Re-cased: A book that has been glued back into its covers after having been shaken loose.

I don't think I'd ever buy this for this price, but I guess someone here might be interested.

That is not a very nice looking recasing, in my opinion. I'd rather someone did a custom binding rather than gluing old fabric down on random green boards...
