I am about to start seriously collecting Tolkien works, I was wondering how does one tell the printing number of a 1st edition, I am under the belief that 1st edition/ 1st printings are significantly more valuable than 1st edition/ 2nd printings and so on. I would be so thankful for any help on starting my collection, if it is advice, tips, collection lists, and any help in selling me some books (if allowed sorry to mods if this is not allowed) ANY HELP AT ALL WOULD BE APPRECIATED!


Thanks Tom

P.S EXCELLENT WEBSITE!! I just joined

Comments on the HI calendar are coming in now that they are being received by purchasers. The comments have all been most positive which pleases me no end! I had thought it a wonderful piece. But having been intimately involved in its design and creation, I had wondered if I were biased (which is true nonetheless!) People are wondering if HI will do one for 2009 (which I think we will). It is not too late to order one here:

www.herenistarion.org

You may also purchase one from René van Rossenberg at Tolkienwinkel as he purchased 10 to sell on his site. And there will probably be a second print run as the Tolkien Society (UK) Trading section has enquired about 15 - 25 for their members.

Proceeds after printing and postage costs will support HI's website and journals in the coming year.

With my best wishes for a VERY Merry Christmas and happiness and health in the New Year,

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir

...good to know their are fellow people (especially on the same continent) who don't think it's lunacy to have 10 different copies of the same book :) -Metapraxis

It is lunacy!
Who's got more than 10 copies of the same book!?
