Somebody is offering me #519, unfortunately without the red Silm:

The Lord of the Rings, Deluxe edition, 4th
impression, 1974; The Hobbit, Deluxe edition, 1976, colour
illustrations, original black cloth blocked in gold and silver, both
contained in original boxes, Lord of the Rings with publisher’s ‘File
Copy’ ink stamp to paper label, 8vo, with three others: Poems and
Stories, Deluxe ed., 1980, The Hobbit, Collector’s ed., 1987, 3/100
signed by Christopher Tolkien

All books come with a card of authentication from Dominic Winters.

What would be a reasonable price?? Please send me PN with your suggestions!!

Hi Laurin,

Here are some pics of Lot 519. Not sure about value. Others may have better idea.
