Yes, but by my wife, who is not impartial.

I got a near-fine unread 1966 16th impression Hobbit on Friday, so my Third Edition collection is now complete.

Slow progress, mind, Hobbit collecting, as I'm only really interested in them being in decent near-new condition. Second edition progressing even slower (one book a year if I am lucky).

I expect to catch up with Trotter by 2029.


In my humble Hobbit collection, I now have all the 4th edition impressions, so have at least the first 35 impressions of the UK hardback, would have to properly check on impression numbers, but I think it is up to the 40th impression and I have now stopped looking for later impressions, you have to stop somewhere

All have decent justjackets, except the 1st and 2nd impressions, which on eBay would be described as Acceptable, but in the real world are Not at all Good or Very Poor


You are a madman.

I stopped on the second impression of the 1987 Unwin Hyman (and I'm missing 1982, I think). That's quite enough for me!

Very Nice.

I'm always impressed by other collectors and their amazing dedication to the (completely pointless) endeavour of collecting stuff!

I'm too much of a tight-wad to be a proper collector :) I do enjoy the chase, though.
