Good choices. I think I've got most of the LotRs I want. What I _need_ for the collection would be more in the line of academic / poetry stuff -

Songs for the Philologists

Sir Orfeo (1944) I know it's reprinted in Tolkien Studies, but I like originals.

A Little Book of Yorkshire Poetry

And of course a copy of the 1982 super deluxe Silmarillion, but that goes without saying.

Hi, i know it seems like i am only interested in Morgoths ring, lol but i found a copy on Ebay starting bid at £50.

there are photos which show it to be a first edition, however the ISBN is not the ones i have seen in the past for a first edition, first impression.

Could someone please tell me if this is indeed a first impression and perhaps why the ISBN is different.

i dont know if this will work but here is the link to the ebay page.

My top three wish-list (by which I guess I mean I don't have the funds for them) would be:

1) 1963 deluxe box-set with Pauline baynes art.
2) 1992 lotr green box-set signed by Alan Lee and limited to 250 copies
3) The deluxe folio editions

Yours?

Khamul, I would love to see photos of your collection sometime.

I also need to add in two more to my list: first and second illustrated hardbacks by Ted Nasmith.

i realise this sale on ebay has now ended but i was curious as to why you are not interested in it because it is unpriced?


The unpriced books are probably, though not necessarily, Book Club Editions or export editions, the priced copies are probably, though not necessarily, UK Trade editions. It is all as clear as mud.

Have a look at this article on tolkienbooks.net.
