Well I think an aim of owning 75 books is pretty decent, but you are right about being able to slipcase books myself. I have a lovely slipcase from David at tolkienbookshelf which would take care of any book. The only problem is would the book be creased and leaning etc before it got to me.


It would be a lot more than 75 books, as a lot of box-sets include more than one book.

I did not include slipcases and clamshell cases that I have made, but they are really good to protect books (I have 6 of these).

If you buy a 50 year or older book you may have to put up with "the book be creased and leaning etc. before it got to me."

Good Lord, really? Cor. Well, after a v.quick count-up, I see I have around that number of books or sets of books in boxes - well, slipcases, really. Only one of my Hobbits and a Poems and Stories are in actual boxes; that is, with a lid. And of course there's the super deluxe CoH, and Sigurd... hmm; that's more than I thought.

Based on the ISBN only, I think you are correct (the Complete HoME Vol 2 trade edition). Other than that, a completely useless eBay listing as far as information content.

Boxed editions are restricting but if you take UK published books alone (both hardback and paperback, and include Folio Society editions) in slipcases or boxes, there are about 75 different sets to collect.

Some of the paperback box sets from the 1970's are now difficult to find, mainly because the cardboard boxes were poorly made and have fallen to pieces.
