Oh gee! That rules me out. :(

I’m still waiting for my copies of Maker of Middle-earth (hardback) and Treasures from Amazon AU. There seems to be a long delay for some reason. I had preordered and it still hasn’t shipped.

I’ll be honest... my collection is rather poor compared to what most people on here have.

I do own most of the Harper Collins deluxe editions (these represent the “highlight” of my collection) and a couple other paperbacks (the ones with the black covers from early 2000s which were my very first foray into Tolkien’s works more than a decade ago).

I’m looking forward to receiving the hardback of Maker of Middle-earth in a few days.

That’s a breathtaking collection. I spent a good while zooming in on all the shelves

Welcome to the forum, Ithildin. Thanks for sharing your background. It’s crazy isn’t it, how the years fly by yet our love of Tolkien endures? And how places like these can unite Tolkien fans across generations and cultures?

By the way, I don’t think you need to worry about your English at all. Cheers :)

Aww thanks Jeremy. That’s very kind of you :)

That’s some great stuff you got there, Jeremy. The Spring catalogue is quite nice. I had sent them a message asking after it a month or so back, but was directed to the Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth book. Oh well!

Thanks for the update Jeremy. I thought it was just me; and it’s led me to accidentally post the same post multiple times.

Hey Marcel, nice to see you on here after a while. Looked like you had a great time with Jeremy and the others at the exhibition.

Carl, good luck with the sale and hope this extra special copy finds a worthy home.
