Yes, that was me. But I don't think I will be able to buy it in the next 5 years or so. Too expensive for my student's purse
But quite nice to see there are still copies circulating, and thanks for your attention!

I haven't read a lot of adult fantasy (except Tolkien of course), but I've read a bit more children's fantasy. Also, to keep room for other authors, I've given Tolkien just one spot, otherwise I think it would all have been Tolkien (at least in the adult list).

Adult:
1) JRR Tolkien (LotR, Sil, CoH, The Hobbit, Leaf by Niggle, Smith of Wootton Major)
2) Dracula - Bram Stoker
3) The Color of Magic - Pratchett (only one I've read from the Discworld series but there are more to follow, definitely!)
4) The (Poetic) Edda (at least the tales I've read up till now)

(Those are the fantasy novels I can remember having read)

Children's:
1) Harry Potter series - JK Rowling
2) JRR Tolkien (The Hobbit (I like it more as an adult novel), Farmer Giles of Ham, Roverandom)
3) The Chronicles of Narnia - CS Lewis
4) A Dutch series called De Griezelbus (The Bus of Horror)
5) King Arthur and His Knights - Anthony Mockler (has references to Tolkien's writings: a nazgûl appears, Merlin says his name was once 'Gandalf' (well, it comes down to this), the Lady of the Lake is in fact Galadriel,... Not great literature, but quite fun to read.

Thank you! Fascinating to see you found all those books (well, most of them) with their dust jackets

And what have the following books to do with Tolkien?

- An Anglo-American Literary Review (What volume is it?)
- The Digressions of Beowulf
- The Isle of Gramarye
- The Saga of Hrolf Kraki (I only found out that Mills was a student of Tolkien's)

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...
