The Cushing Memorial Library and Archives collection refers to a collection of sixteen philological books in German from J.R.R. Tolkien's personal library and two full pages and four fragments of notes and two letters, held at the Cushing Memorial Library and Archives at Texas A&M University.

Fifteen of the books are inscribed with Tolkien's name and date, and a number of these contain his annotations. Madeline J. Keyser provided a description of parts of the material in the article "Sixteen Philological Books and Notes from the Library of J.R.R. Tolkien" (appearing on the website Tolkien Library).[1]

Carl F. Hostetter and Patrick H. Wynne have analyzed portions of the material posted by Keyser, namely the fragments consisting of an "invented Elvish, or Elvish-influenced, language".[2]
