Not sure that has ever been massively popular, but I would go along with the assertion that interest and prices have dropped enormously for anything but very rare stuff. I see that trend continuing. I'd say it peaked 5 or more years ago, earlier for some things. A decade ago, I reckon we saw peak prices for HoME 1sts and HarperCollins black deluxe editions, etc.

Personally, I never had any intention of selling my books (so I consider them to have no monetary value), so falling prices is a positive. Collectors who have a genuine interest can buy the books they want without it breaking the bank.

At the moment, early Hobbits are expensive. In another 5 years, IMHO, they won't be (other than 1st/2nd impressions, of course).

With clarifying that all the TftPR reprints are Chinese; If it isn't Chinese, it is a first print.

Book collecting is a fairly minority hobby. Tolkien collecting is a minor part of that minority hobby!

I loved Night of the Nazgul when I was nipper!
