Good insights. I guess all the movies junk and related hype volume of books printed does not help either. Tolkien collecting was far more fun before the movies.

Is it me or does it look like Tolkien collecting is very subdued? Or is there far more supply than demand for books? I guess a lot of inventory flooded the market after the movies hype.

My focus was a core of first editions of LOTR in EU languages: all sold 10 years ago. I then collected foreign Silmarillion editions but also sold / gifted many of those. I also collected fan magazines from the 1950s to 1990s and donated all those. I then spent time in ZA and collected Tolkien related materials from his infancy years in Bloemfontein. I donated all that material as well.

Thank you. This is all that remains of a vastly larger collection. I moved from the EU to ZA and then to the US over the years. I sold / donated / gifted many items over the years. Unfortunately I do not have the time and energy anymore to appreciate the items.
