There's an article here -

http://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/l ... om-the-shire-8412635.html

-with more, here -

http://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/l ... html?action=gallery&ino=8

- about someone who's had a house built in his garden for his Tolkien collection which, it is reported here and elsewhere, includes books and 'manuscripts'. The bookshelves in this picture don't seem remarkable (but then I wouldn't show any of my good stuff, either).

I was wondering what reporters here and elswhere on the net mean by 'manuscripts'? I know what I mean when I say 'Tolkien manuscripts', but reporters seem to want to convey an idea of something mysterious....

I'd be interested to hear/see what else is in that collection (apart from those God-awful figures in the rafters).

He is clearly a collector, so if you visit this site please make your self known, and we would we love to see detailed pictures of your collection.

He probably did not say that he has "a veritable dragon's hoard of world-class J.R.R. Tolkien manuscripts and memorabilia.", from experience I think the journalist added that

What a beautiful little house.

I also hope he is here on the forum and will show us some more of his collection.
