I have been confirmed it will NOT be sold through amazon, but will be distributed by ONE on line bookdealer. Normally I will be able to give more information in a few days from now...

If the Super Deluxe will not be available through Amazon, how do you think they will be sold? direct from Harper Collins? Or do some selected bookstores also get them?

A fine question, and I don't have my pile of references handy for accuracy. I don't remember there being any one specific sale or auction where his library was sold off. There were certainly some bulk sales made to dealers both when he was alive (moving to smaller quarters) and by the family later, but there are no catalogs (auction or dealer) for any significant part of his library in one sale.

Hi all.

I hope everyone is well and your collection growing.

Can anyone tell me information about how Tolkien's library was auctioned off after his passing away. How many books were sold, who was the auction company and when were they acutioned? Was an auction catalogue produced?

Of course, any other info would be appreciated

Dior
