I recently bought a copy of Essays and Studies 1953 and I was wondering if someone can give me an idea of the books worth. It has two small tears on the spine (0.5cm), the rest of the book and dust jacket has no other faults although there is a small neat inscription.

I have looked on abebooks and there are only two listed; an ex library copy for $245 US and the other is listed as a fine copy for $883 US...both these prices seem very excessive.

Thanks

Hi All -

Have not catalogued any "new" calendars although the 2007 HarperPrism is out. So will add that one eventually. I did post a new Calendar of the Month for September. Hope everyone's summer was great.

Away from the Green Hill Country,

Hi Jeremy -

It would seem you have done things the opposite of me. I got back into Tolkien (specifically collecting the calendars although I never stopped re-reading the books) when my youngest went to college. Without the homework tutoring, cross-country meets, and band concerts, I found myself with a lot more time. Best of luck and congratulations to your wife and you on the adoption. Just don't think that your life will ever be the same. It will be better and busier. Share your passions with your child and create your own "Mini Me".

Best,

Phil (Parmastahir)

Hi Trotter -

From the movie "Field of Dreams": If you build it, they will come. It doesn't matter whether anyone here thinks that a diary website would be useful or not. (Even though I think it would be of interest to me. But more on that following.) If you have fun with it, learn anything from it, meet any people with common interests, then you have three good reasons to build it. I built my Compleat Gyde to Tolkien Calendars website for those reasons, and I have not ever regretted it. Although many fellow collectors have asked that I add the diaries to my calendar website. I have not been very much interested in them - no insult to your interest intended as I do have several of them. But I have not actively pursued them as I have the calendars. You might consider expanding your "world" a bit and collect the diaries from "all over". I know of US and Italian issues (and, I think, a Polish one??) I say go for it. Good luck and have fun!

Thanks Deagol, that is very useful.

I assume that your pre-2000 Diaries have the same illustrations as the respective calendars for that year, or are any of them different?
