I think it would be interesting to hear what everyone has decided to focus on with their collecting.

I'll go first:

Early on I realized I can't collect everything so I decided to focus on US published tolkien editions. I'll never get there but Im aiming for every US edition of everything tolkien has done.

I also like to collect the older poems like Goblin Feet and scholarly works like Beowulf, Green Knight and Ancrene Wisse.

Lastly I liked getting books about tolkien himself and about the various movies made. I'm very casual about this category.

I probablly should have narrowed my focus a bit but these areas called to me.

What am I missing?

They look to be the exact same book - but for very different prices ($189 vs $750)

This is completely off-topic, but I hope you can bear with me!

I'm looking for a DVD of "Dorothy Vernon of Haddon Hall", starring Mary Pickford. My researches so far have drawn a blank; can anyone here help me?

Thanks

Here's another example of John's handwriting (in a typically marked Michael book) for you to compare...

I have several books from the library of Michael, and a few more from that of Father John. The sig. in the second book certainly looks like his, from around that time.
