My god! --that's as many LR first editions, as I have 1977 copies of The Silmarillion...

Well, not quite.

Here is a link to a german article about the museum.

Quite impressive what he has collected so far in a short time:
Over 600 original paintings from over 100 artists
Every british impression of the Hobbit up to 1999
Signed first impression of the Hobbit and LotR (with a dedication in Quenya, to Elaine Griffiths „Elainen tárin Periondion ar meldenya anyáran.)
Signed first US edition LotR
Signed first Italian edition LotR
etc etc
around 3000 books all in all

@Beren:
Since you are mentioned in the article and on the official website as an Library Consultant & Webmaster, have you already been at the museum and seen his collection?

Every H impression, to 1999?; I don't think so --I'm sure there are a few missing, from that H photo.
