Scanned... some more covers from my J. R. R. Tolkien collection

When I was away in Dunfermline... celebrating my 15 year wedding anniversary with my wife Olly... she spoiled me. She let me indulge one of my greatest pleasures... hunting for Tolkien books in charityshops.

Whilst away I found 5 copies. Dayna then made it 6 by finding a copy of 'The Two Towers' in Strathaven. I've scanned them along with some additional copies that I had up the loft.



My original copy of 'The Hobbit'... must be about 30 years old.

The copy Dayna picked up for me in Strathaven.

2/5 from Dunfermline... the Alan Howe illustration on this one is brilliant!

3/5 from Dunfermline... 1/3 that Olly spotted for me!

4/5 from Dunfermline... 2/3 that Olly spotted for me!

5/5 from Dunfermline... 3/3 that Olly spotted for me!

Your original copy of The Hobbit (the Unwin one with Smaug sitting on the pile of gold) is the very first copy of it that I owned as well. It's not in the best of shape now as I've read it many times over the past two or three decades.

Happy 15th Anniversary. Here we get different covers than yours there.
Tolkien cover collecting is a great hobby.

You could design your own covers for imaginary Tolkien re-issues, too :).
