Why do you think or assume this is funny? I think you have missed my point, I don't think anyone here will follow you (whatever that means), but that members will post any views on this forum if they are so inclined.

New book up: http://collectingtolkien.blogspot.com ... arper-collins-deluxe.html and can we please get more than one 'follower' for the blog?! Whoever it is looks so lonely all by themselves!


I don't think anyone here is the follower, as any comments from guide members have been made in this topic and not on your blog.

If you fancy branching out from Tolkien books, how about some of these books and ephemera at Sotheby's London in December.

Tolkien may get the same prices in 4-500 years time

I'm happy to double your money if you want to sell.

That's a very good purchase for £5

I bought all of these items on eBay for £20 (free postage), extremely poor listing, all first printings of these particular printings, with dust-jackets in case anyone asks.

I was very pleased with "The Silmarillion", but getting these copies of "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" was a bonus

I agree these are my favourite Folio editions of "The Lord of the Rings"

The books state they are bound in "Elephant Hide", anyone have any ideas what this means?
