No. I meant choose between different Tolkien works.

It is a leather bound revised second edition

Here is an other book, I want to share with you.
On tolkienbooks.com it is stated, that the 3rd printing of "The Road goes ever on" was first printed in Germany. But it wasn't the 3rd printing, that was issued 1993, it was only a 2nd. It is an english reprint of the 2nd edition with a translated booklet in addition, containing the "Notes and Translations". So the book itself is an english reprint from 1978, the booklet contains a foreword for the german edition. In the paragraph next to last, Donald Swann says, that he hoped the 9th song "Luthien Tinuviel" will be published recently in addition..

Ha, Ha,
The Germans are always so super correct...

Can‘t say, why - I love good bindings...
..and I don‘t like paperbacks...

I don't know exactly, if these are interesting finds, but make your own judgement..

This is a nice little book I won in a quiz 1984. It is a bilingual special hardback edition of Farmer Giles of Ham (one page in english, the opposite page in german), printed only with a number of 19 copies.
The regular edition is a paperback

I have a question: Why is your collection so damn fine?

Arbor, you say "or The Silmarillion"; is there a Silmarillion lithograph box set?

Thanks for your active interest in this post. I never believed, that this could be such an eye-catcher. I think, your collections are worth seeing as well...
If you have any questions concerning this collection, feel free to ask.

I did get the lithos; I can't choose between The Hobbit & LR or The Silmarillion or...
My standard hardback, preordered last Nov. showed up to ease my Oxford withdrawal. Anyway, also got the Deluxe edition with P. Tolkien's signature and like the ephemera, especially the annotated map. I came home with one larger poster (A2 size) of the H dust jacket. But decided to order more posters & stuff online. The jigsaw puzzles will make great gifts for Yule. I did bring home both pillows but only one with stuffing. Of course no one will be allowed to use them, ever. There for the Shrine.

Very nice. I have questions on a couple of the items -- which I will ask when I get a moment.
