Hi! I need your help
I just received a copy of "Essays and Studies 1953", bought on Abe about two weeks ago for a good price.
The book isn't perfect and lacks the DJ. Does anyone have a scan of the DJ I could use to create a Facsimile one?
Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you!
Mauro

I'm scanning my cover at the moment

You can download them from here https://1drv.ms/u/s!ArSx_8pEHDncip0nhmNkhLYVCHi0QQ?e=tR7EmN, Stu might make them into a facsimile for you.

Thank you, Trotter! I hope Stu could help me with the facsimile... I'm hopeless with graphic design!!
I was sure I could count on you, guys!

These aren't super recent acquisitions, but both within the last 12 months. I posted them to FB yesterday, but thought y'all might think they are cool as well.

My most recent purchase is a ragged 1971 6th impression of The Hobbit. Ex library, tatty but solid.

I thought to myself "I'd buy that for dollar" or more specifically a pound. And I did so no complaints.

I bought a second copy of this first impression, the price was (too) very attractive

I still haven't scanned and re-assembled/cleaned the RU jacket for @Mr Underhill as yet.

Hopefully you can use the scanned images that I put in the link of the dj for Essays and Studies when you get time

What did you pay for it, if you don't mind me asking? I actually only got my copy a couple of years ago (fine, unread, original tissue, fine box) and I paid NZD 150 including shipping (about £75 total). At the time I thought that was a pretty decent buy.
