Treasures from the Misty Mountains: A Collector's Guide to Tolkien is a 2001 book by James H. Gilam, offering an overview of collectibles based on Tolkien's legendarium.

Includes a reproduction of a postcard from Tolkien to Rayner Unwin dated 28 December 1953 (p. 126).[1]


In addition to giving an overview on collecting and the various movies, including a general preview of the as-of-then upcoming The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, the book also covers licensed products from the 1970s onward, including books, calendars, games, and collectibles from various companies (Kinder Surprise, Mithril Miniatures, Sideshow-WETA Collectibles).

Reception writes that "it is far from complete and contains many errors."[1]
