What book/set in your collection was the hardest to obtain?

For me, its probablly the Ballantine Paperback Reprint Edition from 1986 and 1987

Open in new window


While I have much rarer books in my collection they were easy to get. It was strangly hard for me to find a collectable copy of this set with a good box and no cracked spines.

How about you? What was a challange for you to find?

Thats a nice find. I like these obscure editions more than anything else in tolkien collecting. Especially when its something not in any bibliography.

Are tolkien collectors the most hardcore completeists?

It seems like most collectors of other authors mostly want first editions. Tolkien collectors seem to be more "completeist" in their approach.

What do you think?
