New book up: http://collectingtolkien.blogspot.com ... arper-collins-deluxe.html and can we please get more than one 'follower' for the blog?! Whoever it is looks so lonely all by themselves!


I don't think anyone here is the follower, as any comments from guide members have been made in this topic and not on your blog.

If you fancy branching out from Tolkien books, how about some of these books and ephemera at Sotheby's London in December.

Tolkien may get the same prices in 4-500 years time

This is one of my best finds.

1st, 1st American edition of Farmer Giles of Ham very good + to near fine condition with dust jacket (same condition) for $15 buy it now on eBay.

The seller obviously didn't know what he was selling.

It was just sheer blind luck about 2 years ago. I happened to be loooking on ebay just as someone listed it as a buy-it-now for £75. I spent at least 10 minutes double checking the listing to make sure it was what I thought it was before buying it.

I joined Folio Society a few months later and discovered they still had a few of the limited numbered Silmarillion left for £100 (now sold out) so I bought one but am still looking for a Hobbit to complete the set. They won't be a matching set of numbers but that doesn't bother me.

As for selling it, I think (paradoxically) if i had paid £200+ for it I might consider selling but, as it is one of my best lucky finds, it has a certain sentimental value as well so will be staying on my bookshelf.
