Hi there,

I am new here. I have been a tolkien collector for over 20 years and have a wide collection of items. Sadly due to a change in personal circumstances, most of it is having to be re-homed.

I am keen to find good homes for the items, rather than just splash it all on ebay.

The first set of books to go is the History of Middle Earth deluxe sets from 2000 onwards. I have all three books in the slipcases and in great condition. I can email pictures if you want to see them.....if you are interested in the full set or even just one of them please email me direct. Otherwise they hit ebay at the end of the week. :(

Unfortunately I already have a set, but you should be able to get a fair price for them on eBay if no one on here pipes up. The first two are worth more than the third. For some reason the third volume seems quite common (I think they were possibly remaindered). Good luck.

Thanks for the comprehensive reply. There are plenty of HM copies for sale at any given time on Abe and proportionately fewer HC copies, suggestive that the original run was quite skewed in favour of the larger US market.

I think you might be correct about the later edition being mis-advertised as the earlier, or at least the stock photo is the wrong one. Indeed, there is a copy of the 2004 on Abe for $449 and the seller can't even be bothered to put the correct photo up!

Whilst browsing through one of my favourite books today, "JRR Tolkien -Artist and Illustrator", I was moved to wonder what kind of print runs the first impressions of the 1995 HarperCollins Hardback and subsequent 2004 HarperCollins Hardback revised edition had? I don't have the 2004 edition, but they don't seem to be terribly common (or possibly people just don't want to sell them).

Hoping that Findegil might be able to answer this one?

Saw this book at a local bookstore yesterday, selling for 50 euros.

Is it worth that much?



No. These books are really quite common as they were printed in huge numbers. There are a couple of variants, and I think the "Clowes" printed edition is possibly less common than the "Billings" version.

I think I paid about 20 pounds for my "mint" Silmarillion 1/1 a few years back, but that had been in a box of GA&U books that had been sealed since the early 80s. I got a 1/1 UT in the same condition from the same box. Those books were better than most new books in a book shop, though, so I paid a premium.
