Good insights. I guess all the movies junk and related hype volume of books printed does not help either. Tolkien collecting was far more fun before the movies.

Is it me or does it look like Tolkien collecting is very subdued? Or is there far more supply than demand for books? I guess a lot of inventory flooded the market after the movies hype.

My focus was a core of first editions of LOTR in EU languages: all sold 10 years ago. I then collected foreign Silmarillion editions but also sold / gifted many of those. I also collected fan magazines from the 1950s to 1990s and donated all those. I then spent time in ZA and collected Tolkien related materials from his infancy years in Bloemfontein. I donated all that material as well.

Thank you. This is all that remains of a vastly larger collection. I moved from the EU to ZA and then to the US over the years. I sold / donated / gifted many items over the years. Unfortunately I do not have the time and energy anymore to appreciate the items.

Selling most of my collection. Update: sold a bunch of stuff this weekend. Remaining stuff available 1 lot:

Tell me what you like and maybe we can work something out. I only sell batches $200 and up. Otherwise it is too time consuming between packing and the post office. The eBay prices are not the true prices. I prefer not selling through eBay because I have dealt with too many fraud cases over the past 10 years.

I can provide verifiable references and ID information to validate me as a seller in PM or e-mail.

Selling because I no longer have time for the hobby with a growing family.
