Note for Lost Road, that publisher "out of stock" is different from "permanently out of stock" - this means that a new impression will be issued if/when demand requires it.

I thought for sure upon seeing them that the Holy Grail of Tolkien bookdom would for sure be those big giant encyclopedia looking History of Middle-Earth's by Harper Collins.

I would love to get my hands on those but they are like $500 bucks each!

Don't get me wrong, there are a ton of "holy grails" out there in Tolkien collecting - my particular highlight was just of the US first editions of the History of Middle-earth books. UK firsts, various combined books like those you mentioned, etc. all have their own scarcity and desirability curves.

That's the fun in all of this!

Eric the Red, here is a copy of The Lost Road (1st, 1st) for $25. Looks like it is in pretty good condition for the price. This volume took me the longest time to secure for a decent price when I was putting my set of American HoMe together.
