OK this is meant to be a bit of light-hearted fun, just to see the range of ideas that come up. I have around £100 to spend on my next Tolkien purchase. Imagine yourself without any of the books you own, and tell me what YOU think I should spend my £100 on.

Currently I am thinking a later edition of the 1969 deluxe bible paper LOTR and the 2004 deluxe Hobbit.

Yip. There was a 1972 deluxe 2nd imp. up on eBay, opening at £59 or something. Oxfam it was. Think they would happily take £100! Get something old...

Not for that price you don't!

What about an early impression of The Hobbit, if you can find one. You could probably get a 2nd edition from the 60's in decent condition for under £100 no problem. Or try & pick up a LotRs 2nd/1st set?

Poems and stories went unsold for £30 the other day, so Im not paying £100 for it!

Old stuff does appeal to me, but the question is what to go for first!
