Collecting Tolkien Books

This is the section where most people are always looking for around the web: a list of all Tolkien books.

I'm very sorry I will have to dissatisfy right away any one who thinks to find a complete list of all Tolkien has ever written. This list is been in progress for many years now, and it still grows every month or so.

Especially recent work and seperate letters by Tolkien are not in the list yet. Luckely there are great books like Wayne G. Hammond's 'J.R.R.Tolkien: a Descriptive Bibliography' (which every one thinking serious about collecting of studying Tolkien books should have!) which can help collectors out to know what books are out there.
