It is because of the depression that the demand for the truly unique items has only increased! Surely the market of scarce book is slow and almost completely sleeping, but at the top there is a lot going on. Sadly for most collectors this trade is completely done outside the open market. I'll have to somehow list some of the treasures that have switched hands in the last months and you will be surprised to see how well the Tolkien market is actually doing on the high end collectors market.
