The owner had passed and his heirs were selling his collections. We purchased his Tolkien collection (and several other pieces) and have been, ever since, amazed by the rarity, the quality and the numbers of the pieces he had. We've sold many to private collectors and friends and many others on line, but there is still much, much more. We try to do due diligence and research the pieces as we list them; they are varied: books & various rare publications, display collectibles, rare letters and posters...etc. It was a wonderful find, a rare cache of materials and many, many of the pieces are jewels for the Tolkien collector. Please take a look at our other pieces for sale. Feel free to ask any questions.
