For many years my Tolkien collection was scattered throughout the house, some on shelves, some in boxes, some in the attic. I suspect that there is the odd box here and there still unaccounted for. Still most of it is in one room now and reaching some sort of order at last. One thing I have realised is that I still have a long way to go to get the collection that I want (of course)!

The first photo shows a corner of the room with Pauline Baynes’ famous maps and the full set of Josef Madlener’s postcard series, ‘Figures from Story and Legend’. The second one in the series and the second one from the left is the one entitled ‘Der Berggeist’ said (by Tolkien) to have been the ‘origin of Gandalf’. Below, on the top shelf of this wall, is a selection of mainly UK Hobbits.

Also on this wall are a selection of deluxe editions, academic works, Tolkien's minor fictional works and, as the wider photo shows, Silmarillion editions, box sets, other media and a selection of books with Pauline Baynes’ illustrations.

Below are some more detailed photos of these shelves. I will show the main wall in another post.

EDIT photos too large so will re-edit

Got a question (might regret asking it!)
Why six Puffin Hobbits?
1 maybe 2 but 6.
Nice pic so far
