Hopefully we can see the other half of your collection?

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.

...didn't want to withhold my largest 'book' from you...
(Hobbit serve as a model)

Interesting little bundle of an Oxford student from the (I think) early 1960s. The wrapper with the egregious spelling error is the pages of Proceedings of the British Academy (1937; reprint of Tolkien's lecture) bound as a standalone booklet.

Proceedings of the British Academy

Happy winner, Berelach :)))
I was also interested, but I didn’t manage to wake up in the middle of the night for bidding...
