Donald Wollheim (Ed. Ace Books) Tolkien collection sale
- I notice that here: <http://www.biblio.com/books/233799226.html#> a small lot of Tolkien-related items formerly owned by Donald A. Wollheim, editor of Ace Books, is for sale, including a letter from Tolkien to Wollheim apparently referring to contract relating to the infamous Ace Books paperback edition of _The Lord of the Rings_.
Of other particular interest to Society members is the picture of a Mythopoeic Society "Special Bulletin" apparently sent to members to announce Tolkien's death. I've never seen this bulletin before, and thought others might like to see it as well.
- Interesting -- thanks. Interesting to me personally not just for several obvious reasons, but because Wollheim was the author of Secret of the Ninth Planet, in the old Winston series of SF for juveniles -- a book that I loved when I was around 11! Some folks here may remember the Schaumburg endpapers for the Winston series, which for those of us "of a certain age" were so evocative of science fiction.
