Happy to oblige - http://www.thisisstaffordshire.co.uk/ ... 2533710-detail/story.html

- from which comes this:

"And far from the glamour of the darting world, they have chosen to play on the town's literary heritage by naming a small side room after JRR Tolkien – who is believed to have written much of Lord Of The Rings while downing cask ales in what was The Green Dragon."

We were inspired to put up a blog post ourselves about the north Staffordshire claims. Their history has a lot of twists and turns. We couldn't find out if The Swan in Leek still has a "Tolkien Room": the owners who named it were evicted a couple years on, and the pub has now been bought by a corporation who are renovating.

Heaven's me! --the Leeds University Verse item is up to £601, with thirty-one bids! Anyone want to hazard a guess as to the final price this might go to?

The last one on Ebay a number of years ago went for over £1100 from memory.

Very rare and not many chances to acquire this book - so bidding could end up anywhere....

Yep its flying for sure. I was going to have a go but for this book too much for me.
The last one went for £1999 in April 2010 so who knows.
My guess will be £1400 !

The ironic thing is a copy was on Abe a few months ago for £200 and sold pre notifications going out!
DARN DARN DARN - o well !
