I have heard that Christopher still has most of his father's fiction library. The academic books and pamphlets were sold to several different people in Oxford, one of which attached labels to the books saying 'From the Library of J.R.R. Tolkien".

The biggest auction lot I know of was sold at Sotheby's on 18 December 1992 - the estimate was 1000-1500 GBP. The lot consisted of 392 offprints and pamphlets, 56 of which were annotated by JRRT - all bore the JRRT library label.

The spam filter for comments is working now, but when I posted the first comment it didn't appear, so I tried to re-post but got a message saying the comment was already there.

The other trouble I sometimes have with this type of system is that the words are sometimes difficult to read. You can refresh the image, so it only a minor irritation.

Not long ago I was playing around with comment spam filters for Wordpress and found something called JS SpamBlock (v1.4). It is invisible to users if they have a browser that can handle javascript, otherwise they just have to type in a number. It seems to be 99.9% effective.

I will try to get some listed over the weekend. The extra 2 or 3 feet of shelf space is desparately needed!

I checked ebay daily for about 6 years, but got out of the habit late last year when I was busy with TolkienBooks (and short of money!).

I have been checking on a weekly basis recently. As well as some wide ranging searches based on ones around at TolkienCollector.com, I have about 30 saved searches looking for more specific items.

I sell occasionally, not much of late, but there is a big pile that I need to sell to make some more room - including some nice Hobbits!

They appear on ebay sometimes. Register it as a favourite search and you will receive an email when one is listed.
