I have had a bit of success with UK Hobbits recently

Every impression from the 3rd Printing of 1942 to the 24th (10th Impression of the 3rd Edition in 1975), apart from one

I only collect Hobbits with Dust-Jackets and they have to be not priced clipped, hence why no 1st or 2nd Printings, a small number of editions (three) need to be replaced because they do not fit my criteria.

Just catching up on threads since sunning myself on hols. Nice set Trotter - very strict criteria but some good looking wrappers

Is it an original Children's club wrapper ? If so that's good been after one for a while myself

Was thinking ? What about a thread on 'showing off your books/collection? I love seeing other people's books and maybe your photo could start it ? We have heard a lot about prized books in the past but would be great to have some photos all in one place if we think a good idea would one of you clearer people transfer it into a new thread ?


No, the cover of the Children's edition is a facsimile

I also would love to have a glimpse of your collections. While I'm at the beginning of this journey, you guys have such great collections, so please let me see them.

I will try to get some photos up myself soon (in the process of reorganizing, things are very much out of place at the moment).

In the meantime, you will likely enjoy this over on the Tolkien Library:

Urulöké,

I forgot about all these.

I can't believe how many books Andrew fits on those shelves!

Neil, I like the "Uncommon magazines, journals and offprints" picture--very nice stuff.

Jeremy, I really like those bookcases.

Pieter's collection makes everyone jealous.
