Indeed, Smith's LR stuff is pretty interesting. I remember buying a Philip Smith lot from a guy, including: THE LORD OF THE RINGS AND OTHER BOOKBINDINGS OF PHILIP SMITH (Signed; with signed errata notes and 8 annotated postcards), MODERN BRITISH BOOKBINDING (Signed), and THE PRIVATE LIBRARY (Signed and annotated) including ‘Understanding the Physical Book-Arts’ by Philip Smith. They are all very interesting. Maybe I'm an autograph hound too garm?

(Pieter, don't suppose you managed to see Blok?)

I didn't realise you guys were discussing MF's comment on TolkienLibrary & posted a comment there, just after Pieter's. You can remove this too Beren, since I didn't say anything of great value; just a kind of: why are you posting this comment here Mark?

Anyway, the museum sounds nice enough. However like garm I have little interest (a bit harsh; perhaps "less interest") in people "new" to collecting --who spend massive, seem to care little about finding out about Tolkien (or Tolkien bibliography), and who in 10 years are probably going to be collecting (or doing) something else. I just don't feel there is any substance there; a genuine underlying interest being shown. Now, people who have fabulous collections that cost peanuts: that's more interesting. Especially (unlike you garm! --who probably assembled much of yours decades ago! --only kidding...) those who have assembled a collection on a shoestring budget today. That takes time, patience, and not a little skill & knowledge.
