Re: 1977 folio LOTR

Hi Peeta,

Not necessarily. Some sellers state the Edition year but not the printing. Just because you see 1977 listed does not 100% mean that it is actually the 1977 1st Printing. It could also be the 1979 Re-Print.

If it is the 1977 First Printing you are interested in, I would e-mail the seller in advance to clarify that it is the 1977 Printing and not the 1979 Reprint.

When I was buying this edition myself some years ago, I found some listings that were advertised as the 1977 Editions (technically correct) were actually the 1979 Re-Prints of the 1977 Edition.

No harm to e-mail first and ask for a digital photo also.
