The article reminded me of a book I own, with a great title The Man who loved Books too much, pity I don't know anybody who fits that title

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Man-Who-Loved-Books-Much/dp/1594484813

It is an interesting read.

Rare work of poetry by Tolkien to be auctioned at Tennants of Leyburn.

http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=11800

Auction listing : https://www.tennants.co.uk/Catalogue/Lots/387659.aspx

TOLKIEN fans have the chance to snap up an extremely rare piece of the author’s work which is expected to attract international attention.

The rare first impression copy of a volume of poetry containing early works by J.R.R. Tolkien will go under the hammer at Tennants Auctioneers in Leyburn on August 2.

The Swan Press originally printed a first impression of 170 copies in June 1923, followed by a second impression of 200 the following month, containing three original works by the then young academic.

The volume is expected to fetch between £3,000 and £5,000 and is part of Tennants’ August auction of Books, Maps, Prints and Manuscripts.

Can't find my original post on this, but this appears to be the variant edition that I own, slipcase is a different size, and the slipcase has some differences from the more common edition, though all editions are quite rare in a slipcase.
