I almost exclusively collect US (American) published works of Tolkien so my comments are in that context.

In general it seems like there is both less available in used bookshops and eBay and what is available is more expensive than it was maybe 5 years ago. It seems like alot of material was brought to market at the peak of the hype from the movies but now lots of books are in people's collections and not being sold as much they used to be.

Even more specifically I would be curious in knowing when Ballantine started doing this.

Thanks,

I mean that if the content of all the editions is essentially recycled (bar the Alan Lee illustrations, I guess), I won't personally value the book enough to have a Super Deluxe edition of it


I can honestly say without sarcasm that I am envious of people who don't have the completist sickness. If a book is within the scope of my collecting parameters and I can afford it (and often even if I cant afford it) I HAVE to have it.

>Email me (Aelfwine @ elvish . org) and I'll send you the VT covers you need.

Thanks!

VT on-demand reprints are all bound volumes. The original issues were all saddle-stapled booklets.

Double thanks :)
