Good stuff indeed!

There are some books there, in the upper shelf, I don't recoqnize. Could you enlighten me with the titles of the books (as some are (very) hard to read) ?

Remy: I think the Rebound Roverandom was limited to 25 copies.


Oh, yes, I knew it was a small number, but I was too lazy to check it and I went for 10 copies...

Andrew (bruffyboy) sure puts a lot of action in this forum!

My ten most wanted books are (sorry, to choose three is impossible for me):

(randomly numbered)

1. The first impressions of The Lord of the Rings
2. Songs for the Philologists (although I know it's quite impossible)
3. The Reeve's Tale (1939) (anyone has got this one?)
4. 1982 Super Deluxe The Silmarillion
5. Lord of the Rings (single volume, signed by Alan Lee, ltd to 250)
6. The Tale of Gondolin (matching with the next, like seen on Pieter's (Collier) collector's profile on Tolkienlibrary.com (image)
7. The Ruins of Osgiliath (image)
8. The Hobbit 60th anniversary Deluxe, signed by Alan Lee, ltd to 600 copies (I simply love the colours)
9. Sir Orfeo (1944)
10. The Hobbit, first impression
10bis. (sorry) Roverandom, bound by Thornton's (the green one, ltd to 10)

And if numbers 1, 2, 3, 9 and 10 would be signed, I wouldn't mind

...and many others, but those are the ones that pop up in my mind straight away.

I have acquired the CoH SD in a very fortunate way (I won't go on on this, because some of you know how), but I wouldn't spend more than £200 on it (but that's because I'm a student and life is quite expensive for us).
I probably wouldn't spend more than £100 on LoSaG SD, because I find it one of the most (if not thé most) unattractive deluxe editions, and that has mainly to do with the color.
I won't buy an unattractive edition of a Tolkien book neither if I already have it in another edition (unless it is a real bargain, of course).

Trotter: As I only have a limited space for books, I only have about 500 Tolkien Books, so I have had to go for quality rather than quantity, something that I'm sure that a lot of other board members have also done


Well, I go for quality (and beauty) too, rather than for quantity
I'd rather buy one nice expensive book, than several less beautiful cheaper ones.
