Re: Lord of the Rings first US edition/impression dust jackets

Hi Jeniveve - the info. about the dust jackets of the HM 1st ed. LotR is quite involved. Steve Frisby made a masterly study of the variations in the first US edition, back in 1999; including much about the dust jackets. This was published in a magazine called _The Tolkien Collector, written and published by Wayne Hammond and Christina Scull. Here's a link to their page.

The article was published in three parts, in issues 20, 21 and 22. Unfortunately back issues aren't available at the moment; I suggest you contact Wayne and Christina and see what the situation is.
