Thanks both! I haven't been buying too much lately but decided it was high time I had the first edition Beowulf, so I let myself go a bit outside my budget. Feeling good about the decision :)

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).

Now that is a collection we can all appreciate! Such collecting taste.
