Hi,

Im new to collecting tolkien books but Im a life long tolkien fan.

Im curious to hear what other people collect? I guess Im in the "completist" mode in that I would want every unique edition of JRRT's writting, not just early printings and collector's editions.

How about you? Is their a theme or focus to what you collect?

Hi Qweniden, and welcome to TCG!

I started out getting the books I remembered as a kid (my parents had some nice early editions of LOTR and Hobbit that I wanted as well), spent a good long time working on his academic works (Nodens, Year's Works, etc.), am now slowing accumulating the old poetry that appeared in obscure journals. Also I am spending a lot of time with the fanzines from the sixties and seventies recently.

Some folks focus on translations, artwork, signatures, toys, action figures, puzzles, books from Tolkien's personal library, you name it! I firmly believe that there is really no way to have absolutely everything (even with infinite funds), so have at, and have fun!

A great place to start for Tolkien collecting is a regular on this site, Beren's, own website and in particular the section on Tolkien Collectors.

Beren's Tolkien Collectors

Hope you find some inspiration and welcome to Tolkien collecting.
