For me it's about slipcased and boxed editions. As I am early in my collection, I am going for limited editions and 'fancy looking' books first.

Why would Tolkien sign a book written by Lewis, especially given the fact that he did not think highly of this book?

Like most collectors, I mainly collect 1st, 1sts.

However, for research purposes, I also collect unpublished and uncollected images of Tolkien's letters. I have also acquired copies of most of Tolkien's published interviews, but there are still a few I still need. His interviews are fascinating.

I think it would be interesting to hear what everyone has decided to focus on with their collecting.

I'll go first:

Early on I realized I can't collect everything so I decided to focus on US published tolkien editions. I'll never get there but Im aiming for every US edition of everything tolkien has done.

I also like to collect the older poems like Goblin Feet and scholarly works like Beowulf, Green Knight and Ancrene Wisse.

Lastly I liked getting books about tolkien himself and about the various movies made. I'm very casual about this category.

I probablly should have narrowed my focus a bit but these areas called to me.

They look to be the exact same book - but for very different prices ($189 vs $750)
