I for one am pretty fond of them, and have collected them assiduously.

For anyone interested the Book Depository are selling the 2 Volume Hardback Tolkien Companion & Guide Boxset US Version HMCO on ABE for £18.41 with Free Worldwide Delivery. A fantastic price.

http://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=4862879758

Although they have just slashed the price on their own website, strangely it is more expensive than their listing on ABE (a mistake possibly?)

Jeremy, I'm getting quite a lot of New Post automated emails (because I've selected this preference) which are clearly spam --I assume stuff that hasn't quite made it through the TG filters to actually appear in the forums as spam but which is managing to creep through into the automated email notification function thing. Just thought I'd mention it...

Just a general query as to what everyone thinks about the ELF publications Parma Eldalamberon and Vinyar Tengwar; in regard to both collecting them, and, perhaps more importantly, the original Tolkien content.

Rather than buy individual volumes (although I bought some originally) I've been quite happy just buying the collected volumes of VT --you get all the content, the little bound volumes will probably hold up better over the years, and they can stand nice on the shelf.

Parma Eldalamberon I haven't bought at all. Now, with copies OOP, and with them being quite expensive if you were thinking of acquiring all of them, I'm not that sure what volumes to purchase. Taking my collector hat off for a second, I'm tempted to just go with trying to acquire the issues Neil has up on TolkienBooks as containing original Tolkien content. I've been reading through the last few years of Tolkien Studies, and Parma Eldalamberon is always reviewed quite favourably; & the content does genuinely sound quite interesting --i.e. quite a lot of the material is not just of a philological nature, there's a good deal of collateral legendarium material too.

What does anyone else think? I'm caught between my primary & fundamental interest in Tolkien's writings, and my collector instinct not to start buying up another 'area' which might be quite expensive, and which I may not be able to (fully) complete. Sad, I know. But what can I say...
