Tolkien Collector's Guide

Jan 30, 2013

The site seems to be having problems at the moment.

Every time I click on pages I get a redirect to a strange website ( and then the following.

Deagol, please can you take a look?

It is probably no surprise but I also collect paperbacks, I find some of them harder to find than hardbacks

I guess you already know I am a completist!

Would you completists mind checking your 7-volume boxed LR sets?
It looks like the impression numbering was not reset back to no. 1 when the 2012 edition was issued, so I would like to determine the last impression of the 2001 edition and the first of the 2012 edition.

Pages for three volume and seven volume editions of The Lord of the Rings updated.
Nothing spectacular really, but the identical covers on the A- and B-format film tie-in paperbacks with overlapping ISBNs are bound to confuse.

Hi, Deagol.

My A-formats of those LOTR film tie-ins are 7th impressions - a couple higher than you've listed.

I have also made some updates to various pages for Folio Society editions, based on info gleaned from Folio 60, a bibliography of FS publications.

Is it worth purchasing Deagol? I've been trying to get a copy for a while now, but can't seem to locate a copy for a decent price. I have Folio 50; lovely big book.

Personally I would say yes if you find a reasonably priced copy. It is a handsome volume.
It adds info to books published before 1996 and also includes full details of the 1997 Tolkien editions and also the deluxe editions.
I am a bit of an anorak for these things though!

Yeh, I remember Wayne & Christina mentioning (here on TCG) about some piece of information that was in Folio 60; it sounded worthwhile purchasing. I take it it's a big, big volume (i.e. physical size) like Folio 50?

Feb 15, 2014
It's a big chunk, roughly A4 size and maybe an inch and a half ish thick.

Just chipping in to record my thanks, praise and appreciation of your site, Deagol.
