Rare and Collectible Tolkien Books

Welcome!  We have specialised in selling rare books by J.R.R. Tolkien and the art used in those books since 2003, over 20 years. We are one of the largest specialist Tolkien dealer in the world. We have become recognised experts and many have copied our lead focusing just on Tolkien rare books. We were the first! You will notice in our book inventory we actually have dozens of rare and first editions in stock, ready to buy!  We are not using Tolkien books as a lost leader or as click bait for other books.  Click on our shop links below to see our current inventory.

We also have 21 years of previous customers looking to sell their rare Tolkien book collections on consignment.  If you do not see what you are looking for, please contact us and we will find it for you! Visit our shops frequently, our stock changes every week.

New! We now publish our own collecting guide newsletter. It is free for the time being. Email: markfaith@festivalartandbooks.com to be added to the mailing list.

Key items for sale are listed on our Ebay and AbeBooks shops. Ebay provides the easiest photos management to view which you can also be downloaded. While we get discovered on these sites, most of our sales are direct by email saving you unnecessary taxes and fees. We can also meet up with you to show you our more expensive books in person.  We have 100% positive feedback on both sites. As such a narrow specialist, we have to get it right, every time. If you see something for sale in our shops, contact us directly for the best price. We can save you money if you buy direct!
