There are literally thousands of booksellers selling millions of used
and new Tolkien and Tolkien related books on the net right now. The Advanced
Book Exchange (Abebooks) has over 6,900 booksellers subscribed and over 50 million books listed.
And that's just one site (allthough it is the largest and in my oppinion
the best to find scarce Tolkien books). There is a treasure of out-of-print
Tolkien books out there on the internet, but it can be very hard to wade
through the net and actually find them.

We have created the Shop at the Tolkien Library Rare Book Store as a way to show all rare Tolkien books together and as a source of income. The Shop basically offers the rarest books from different sellers and everytime you purchase an item in the shop we will earn a commission. This commission is not taken in any way from the price that you have to pay for the products and is an easy and fun way to enlarge your Tolkien collection while supporting our cause financially.
