Hey everyone -- I logged in here for the first time in... well, I really don't know how long because I wasn't even aware I had an account (Trotter kindly reminded me about the site's existence when I was asking around about the delay on this book on Twitter last week); wanted to let everyone know my copy from Amazon UK is preparing for dispatch, so I assume yours are as well.

Unfortunately (well, not really) I'm leaving for New Zealand for three weeks on Tuesday so it's highly unlikely I'll see this before then as I paid the standard shipping cost and I live in NYC. I'll have something to look forward to when we return from our vacation!

Also: just looking into my first post now (from six years ago!) -- I'm definitely in a better place than I was then. Have gotten most of my collection back.

And for those asking what the value is in a facsimile of the first edition: most people cannot afford to spend tens of thousands of dollars/pounds on a book, and thus most of us will never own a first edition. I'd think the appeal in a facsimile would be obvious

Selling my Tolkien collection after 17 years of collecting

Hello all,

It was suggested to me by a user at theonering.net that I post my eBay auction here...so here I am! Hope someone finds my auction interesting :)

After nearly 2 decades of collecting Tolkien books, I've decided to let most of my collection go to a better home, and I wanted to let you all know about it:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Tolkien-Mega-Coll ... Books&hash=item27b5d290a8

I'm selling these to help pay off some pretty massive credit card debt accrued in my previous life as a married college student, which is the first step in my plans to move with my girlfriend to New York (from California!) in 2 years. So not only are you getting (or gifting) a great collection of Tolkien stuff with this lot, you're also helping make a lifelong dream of mine come true. I've already got a job I can take with me, so all I need to do now is save some money...which we're working on right now!

The best way to contact me with questions is through eBay...I look forward to hearing from some of you. Thanks in advance to anyone who's interested, and blessings to all!

Michael
