Is there any useful information for the non-neophyte Tolkien collector in this article? Worth reading?

It says nothing that will be new to you, and is absolute chock full of errors and inaccuracies. It covers books, Tolkien Society magazines, Bakshi film ephemera, figures, gaming and recordings, but none in enough detail to be of any use.

It claims that there is a book by Tolkien called Studies in Old English that sells for a few hundred pounds - have you ever heard of it...???!!!

It also mentions a book called Collectable Treasure from the Works of J.R.R. Tolkien by JamesTomlinson. Has anybody heard of this? There is nothing online that I can find.

That's pretty much what I figured.

At first I thought maybe they were referring to Treasures from the Misty Mountains: A Collector's Guide to Tolkien by James H. Gillam, but that came out in 2001 (this one has the occasional nice picture, some really low resolution ones that look like they stole from eBay listings, and the book section is absolutely full of holes.)

Maybe The Old English Exodus? Essays and Studies? Who knows, I haven't heard of Studies in Old English.
