My Wish List always seems to grow (no matter how many editions I acquire...)

Some of the most desired are as follows:

1925 Review of English Studies Vol 1 No 2 (Contributions to Middle English Lexicography)
1928 Dialect of the District of Huddersfield (with Dustjacket)
King Edward’s School Chronicle (Various Tolkien Issues)
1918 Spring Harvest
1939 Reeve’s Tale
1947 English Studies
1913 Stapeldon Magazine
1922 Gryphon
1923 A Northern Venture
1930 Oxford Magazine
Rebound Thornton's Hobbit and Silmarillion (if they exist - not sure they do)
1937 Summer Announcments (and possibly Spring - can't remember) - GA&U Catalogues
Introduction to Old Norse (with DJ)

guess i only have 1 item on my wish list these days: "JRR Tolkien Letters to Rhona Beare"...

and maybe some more books from Tolkien's library but i'm actually quit happy with the stuff I got already; but they are always welcome!

My three most wanted would have to be a 1st/1st Hobbit (British) with DJ, 1st/1st complete set of LOTR (British) with DJ, and the proof copy of Smith of Wootton Major on Beren's website.

I would also love to have a handwritten letter or two by Tolkien.

"10bis. (sorry) Roverandom, bound by Thornton's (the green one, ltd to 10)"

I think the Rebound Roverandom was limited to 25 copies.

Yet another example of horses for courses (or, in this case, 'one man's meat is another man's poison'). Personally, I wouldn't have one of Alex Lewis's knock-offs if you paid me!

- but I agree with the rest of the list. And, (don't tell anyone) - I do have a copy of the Reeve's Tale. It's lovely!

BTW - I'd heard the Thornton's Roverandom was bound in more than ten copies, but I can't remember how many off the top of my head. Mine is unnumbered.
