Hi,

I'm tolkien collector as others ;) on this site :)

I like to collect Tolkien books (1st edition, or illustrated) in other languages than English. Especially "The Hobbit" and LotR.

During years of collecting, searching for better copies and exchanges with others collectors I have in my collection few itmes which I can sell or trade for some others Tolkien books.

At this moment there is:
Lord of the Rings - 1st Hungarian Edition published in 1981 (hardbacks with dustjackets)
Open in new window


Lord of the Rings - 1st Czech Edition published in 1991 (hardbacks with dustjackets)

Open in new window


If you are interested to collect these editions then please PM me :)

If you have some other 1st LotR (in foreign language) or "The Hobbit" (funny or originally illustrated) editions to sell or to show then please post here (or again PM me) :)

I have a few multiple copies of the 1st Dutch Hobbit and some sets of the First Dutch Lord of the Rings which I'm willing to sell... all depends on the price of course!

I have 1st Dutch already :) as well as 1st like: Hungarian (1975), Polish (1960), Turkish, Swedish (1947), Faroese, Slovak (1973), Luxembourgish and Finnish (1973) :)

I think 1st Dutch LotR has to be quite expensive. I saw set on ebay if I good remember for 300 EUR(?). That's too expensive for me at this time.
My primary foreign tolkien translation collection are Hobbits and on secondary LotR.

Beren -

Please convince Srodziemie to put his collector profile on your site. I promised not to pester him about doing so. But I made no such promise for you! (Srodziemie - You will know me as Phil. Any word from the Polish TS?!? )

My best wishes to you both for a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Hey srodziemie, write up a collector's profile for Beren!

Also, I have a limited edition boxed/signed copy of the illustrated comic book The Hobbit adapted by Charles Dixon and illustrated by David Wenzel. If you are interested, I could probably work out a trade with you.

Reminds me I really need to start working on the book section of the Guide. More to do, more to do...
