I've been looking forever as well. Congrats - I didn't believe such a thing even existed. Now remember to keep it in the dark and keep it cold!

Many thanks. I did not think one existed either and less so as the years went on.

Thankfully the library has no windows - so hopefully will be able to preserve the colour.

Hi guys!
I would like to share with you some recent acquisitions.

- The Lord of the Rings, A&U, 3 Vols., 8th/7th/7th impr.
- The Hobbit, FS, 1979 1st impr.
- J.R.R. Tolkien Artist & Illustrator, HC, 2004 1st impr.
- Four volumes of the Oxford English Monographs series (unfortunately, Elizabethan Acting and Sir Orfeo lack the dustwrapper)
- The Monsters and the Critics and Other Essays, A&U, 1983
- The making of The Lord of the Rings, regular and limited editions (both are 2018 reprints by Thornton's)
- Jay Johnstone Tolkienography (Isildur's Bane and Manuscripts)

Thank you for your inspirational posts, both old and new, and many thanks for your precious advice!

PS: congratulations remy, your copy of The Inklings looks brilliant! Thanks for sharing the true colour of the dustwrapper.

Thank you, Mr. Underhill (I wish you good luck to complete the Monograph series, I think it's an intriguing hunt) and emilien!

I saw that online for sale…curious if the book itself differs from the first printing?

I really doubt it, but I haven’t gone through it yet. I was mostly after the ephemera that came with, and the seller accepted my (much lower than asking) offer. 😁

Interestingly, I cannot find a normal first US impression Unfinished Tales around here. I think I gave it to someone else at some point.

Does someone here have a copy of a first and can post a picture of the rear flap? This review copy rear flap differs substantially from what Hammond's Bibliography describes.
