Yesterday was a great day to get a little bit of everything! @admiralchewie wore an awesome t-shirt that highlighted Frodo, Sam, and Gollum’s journey into Mordor and @wizard_bliss got a clock for his birthday that shows the journeying fellowship (and it looks like it was carved from a record? Cool!).
Transitioning to the book cover category, we were shown two slightly different covers of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, and of course, @MylaMalinalda needs both for her collection! We’re so happy to see the German Tolkien Society using the #TolkienCollection tag on Instagram; they happen to have all three of the infamous “unauthorized” Lord of the Rings.
It’s always a pleasure to see more Tolkien books, so thanks to @LiaraDeran, @msadriennec, and especially @AndyBirdUK who posted a new photo for this week’s #TolkienCollection photo challenge–In My Pocket.
If you want to see your photos in our daily post, remember to use the hashtags #TolkienCollection and/or #CollectAThing so we can track them down. To make it really easy, you could tag us @CollectTolkien on Twitter and @collectathing on Instagram!
Welch ein Relikt. Im Jahr 1965 verlegte der Verlag Ace Books in den USA eine nicht lizensierte Ausgabe des Herrn der Ringe. Der Streit um diese "Raubkopie", war zum Teil mitverantwortlich für den späteren Erfolg von Tolkiens Werk. #Tolkien #book #relikt #acebooks #lotr #old #tolkiencollection #bookporn #fotr #ttt #rotr #bookstagram
Bookstore finds yesterday 📚 I've been searching for a copy of The Monsters and the Critics and Other Essays for sooo long and it's finally mine! 1st ed & 1st printing 1984 (One day I shall own a 1937 Beowulf: The Monsters and the Critics. One day…). Also got another 1st US ed Silmarillion (1st printing this time) and a cute facsimile of Alice's Adventures Under Ground #bookwormlife #bookhaul #tolkiencollection #beowulf #thesilmarillion #rarebooks #lewiscaroll #bookcollecting
