Oo, That Awful Mr. Wilson
Well, I didn’t think of myself as a collector for a long time. I was just interested in reading everything Tolkien wrote I could lay my hands on, and useful books about his writings, with emphasis on all things "Middle-earth related". From studying Arda, it went to studying developments of the texts, and look at my bookshelves now ...
I think Mr. Menon mistakes the excesses for the essentials of collecting.
