I used an online service to procure facsimile jackets for a first edition houghton mifflin set of Lord of the Rings. The jackets were not cheap (> $20 apiece), but were good quality reproductions. The vendor can be easily located with google.

A brief, but interesting article on Tolkien's Au-pair.

Like you I have some of the early paperback editions (unwin allen, ballantine, methuen, ace), but tend to focus on american and uk hardcovers. I imagine anyone being a completest would have to add an addition to their house to store all the different hardcover and softcover versions that have been produced.

I see the Hobbit edition in question listed at 300 euros. Just wondering how this was arrived at? I have a pirated Silmarillion similar to the one displayed by Khamul (though with a DJ). I have always wondered what it is worth as I didn't think these pirated volumes were of much value.

Is that the person who was on an episode of Pawn Stars UK? It was interesting to see all those editions in one place. I think the value the book expert on the show gave the collection was around 40K pounds.
