  • Collector Profile: Andrew Ferguson (Trotter)
    The Silmarillion in paperback as well but at that age struggled with the book In 1980 I was given the newly released hardback Unfinished Tales and I think this book really got me started on collecting hardbacks and better quality editions as I was very impressed with the fold out map still today the best Christopher Tolkien map of Middle Earth My collection gradually grew from there What do you collect I have put very strict limits on what I collect I find that if you don t do this you can t break them I primarily collect British editions of Tolkien s fiction and try to own every different UK edition i e all the books on Deagol s Illustrated Tolkien Bibliography I m probably about 98 complete and it is now very difficult to find missing items I have expanded the collection of my favourite Tolkien book The Hobbit to try and collect all the different impressions of the GA U hardback from 1937 to 1975 with dust jackets and currently only have one missing the 1 st printing How big is your collection This is very difficult to calculate as I am still trying to catalogue my collection but I think probably about 500 books about 120 copies of The Hobbit and 150 copies of The Lord of the Rings What has been your greatest find so far It is very difficult to identify a greatest find Some of the hardest editions to find for me have been paperback box sets as some of the Unwin 1970 s sets where very flimsy in construction My favourite item though has to be the 1982 Super Deluxe Silmarillion but I also like my first edition Hobbits and my the 1963 deluxe set of The Lord of the Rings Tell

  • The New Testament in the Westminster Version of the Sacred Scriptures, Signed By J.R.R. Tolkien
    J R R Tolkien In the text block are numerous notes and bibliographical amendments by the noted author In some cases Professor Tolkien even corrects errors in the Bible s footnotes who else would do this other than J R R Tolkien There are numerous instances of burned spots from tobacco ash falling on the pages The front free endpaper has a wonderful example of his signature characterized by the three dots and underlying swoosh he has become famous for The handwritten script in the notes can be compared favorably to known handwritten Lord of the Rings script pages archived at Marquette University and reprinted in pages of the History of Middle Earth A letter of provenance is included from a member of the family that previously owned this Bible stating This New Testament was handed down to me from my parents who had known the Tolkiens in Bournemouth since the sixties They had often talked fondly about the time spent with them and used to say how they were very happy people who enjoyed the simple things in life like hearty conversation amongst friends All the amendments within its pages are totally genuine as well as the tobacco as both my parents never smoked A very significant and personal item originally published a few years after The Hobbit and a few years before The Lord of the Rings Much has been written about Tolkien s personal faith which was so subtly and skillfully infused into the moral fabric of Middle earth and which he drew upon to convince fellow author C S Lewis that the Gospels truly represented the greatest story ever told The notes and emendations in this New Testament display a knowledge and fluency with scripture which is on par with his stunning literary and linguist skills

  • Jacob Lennarthson, a collector of Scandinavian Tolkien translations
    The Lord of the rings and The Hobbit but did not find much interest in books I got my first own edition of Lotr when I was 9 years old and some years later I had most of Tolkien s fictional works that were translated into Swedish It did not feel good to only have one edition of each book so I started collecting English editions as well To sum it all up The collection was not complete to me and I will continue collecting until I think it is complete What do you collect I try to focus on Scandinavian translations and complete sets even though I have a lot of books that are neither of these First priority is Swedish and Norwegian translations I have a long way to go but I will try to collect every one of Tolkien s books translated into Swedish and Norwegian With a little help from the Internet it is not impossible How big is your collection There are approximately 350 objects in my collection plus a few hundred trading cards about 200 of them are books The rest is a mix of action figures board games accessories and posters What has

    deluxe editions related to Middle earth and associated reference books on Tolkien I also have an original The Silmarillion calendar and a selection of Tolkien art cards that were published by Allen Unwin in the seventies I have the Pauline Bayne s poster map but alas I have lost my original The Silmarillion poster map How big is your collection Probably round about fifty books all posthumous first editions and a variety of paperbacks and reference biographical books I also have an audio collection on CD of both JRRT and CRT reading from The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion plus Donald Swann s settings of the poems from The Lord of The Rings One book Tolkien and the Silmarillion by Klyde Kilby reminds me of the feverish time between the announcement of The Silmarillion and its publication when you would trawl anything for clues to the book s contents What has been your greatest find so far A first edition of The Children of Hurin autographed by Christopher Tolkien I was hoping to go down to the central London official release but I was dragged into college to some unspeakably tedious meeting thus missing the event Then fast forward to the following Christmas when I was in Waterstones in central London when I saw a COH edition with a sticker on it advertising it as special to Waterstones I seized it and saw that it had the plate inside signed by Christopher Tolkien I snapped it up It is also autographed by Alan Lee and an actor who was in the films Bernard Hill Tell us about your website I have two one is related to my work and is little more than an online cv though it does show some of my work in Photoshop and fantasy

  • Tim Scholz, an avid collector of anything Tolkien related
    and I always find it hard to remember all the names in the books but now I know where I can find everything out How did you get started in collecting I was given one ToyBiz action figure by a friend so it s all his fault back in 2002 or so can t remember exactly I liked the figure and bought some more first I thought I just wanted the Orcs because I like them most but after a while I had so many and suddenly I wanted them all I never thought about other figures like from Weta or what ever too expensive But after I had collected all of the ToyBiz figures and I found a very good deal for the Weta figures on ebay there I reached the point of no return and I started collecting other figures from Kinder surprise to Danburry Mint Soon after I started buying books games weapons and whatever I could lay my hands on What do you collect I collect everything that is related to Tolkien now as long as I like it and I can afford it For example I don t like the bubblehead figures and the new Hobbit puppets but I collect the rest How big is your collection I got no idea anymore I guess it must be about 10000 pieces at least if you count the miniatures from games workshop What has been your greatest find so far Can t say that eighter If I had to select one piece to keep I would come in big trouble I think from the figures would be Sam and Bill the pony from Weta Sideshow my favorite I got a copy of Farmer Giles of Ham signed by Tolkien that would be my most expensive piece and
