Allthough every country has its own auctions on line (like we in Belgium have 2dehands), you can not find any or very few scarce Tolkien books for sale there. There is of course ebay to fullfill your needs. Ebay is the largest and biggest and best auctionsite internationally and features 2000 Tolkien related items daily.

Ebay has become the major source for Tolkien collectibles as well as numerous other new and used items.

The downside is that the availability of items has actually created a whole new group of collectors. This has increased demand and prices have shot dramatically upward.

The secret to finding treasures on Ebay and any other internet auction is proper searching. There are so many Tolkien items up for graps on Ebay at any one time.
