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 have become recognised experts and many have copied our lead focusing on Tolkien rare books. The first thing you will notice in our inventory is 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 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 thru us. If you do not see what you are looking for, please contact our owner Mark Faith as he can find it for you! We will be listing a number of early and first editions in 2024. Visit our shops frequently in the months to come. If you are looking to sell your rare copies or whole collection, contact us.

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!
