Post pictures of your Collection

Aug 4, 2013 (edited)

I have had a bit of success with UK Hobbits recently

Every impression from the 3rd Printing of 1942 to the 24th (10th Impression of the 3rd Edition in 1975), apart from one

I only collect Hobbits with Dust-Jackets and they have to be not priced clipped, hence why no 1st or 2nd Printings, a small number of editions (three) need to be replaced because they do not fit my criteria.

That rebind is lovely. Crisp and understated, the way a rebind should be.

I'm cleaning books, dusting shelves, & generally rearranging "the collection" this week/w'end. Maybe I'll take a few photos...

Thought I'd share this before Khamûl swoops in and blows me out of the water... and also to commemorate (best I can) C. Tolkien's last book!

Nothing too special here, went for first impressions over condition when necessary (some of those older paperbacks are hard to come by in the U.S., without overpaying).

That is a very nice collection of Silmarillions, Berelach.

Was going to say Why do you need so many copies of the same book? but that would be the pot calling the kettle black, very nice collection

Took some photos but they all came out awful; need to get a new camera...
