Don't know what happened to the last post. Trying again....
With regards to the 2nd Edition Lord of the Rings. Here is the info from the Volumes I have published between 1968 and 1978
1971 ROTK6th Imp. Price Sticker stating ‘£2.25 net George Allen & Unwin’
Under the Price Sticker there is a Printed Price (or Possibly another Price Sticker) which I can barely make out. It definitely starts with a 1 and ends in a 5. I think it is £1.25, but could be Wrong. The Price Sticker could be correcting a misprinted price or maybe an increase in price at some point before the 7th Impression was issued in 1973.
Printed by Jarrold & Sons.
1973 TTT7th Imp. £2.50 William Clowes (3rd DJ Design)
1973 ROTK7th Imp. £2.50 William Clowes (3rd DJ Design)
1974 FOTR8th Imp. £2.75 William Clowes
1974 TTT8th Imp. £2.75 William Clowes
1974 ROTK8th Imp. £2.75 William Clowes
1978 FOTR10th Imp. £4.95 William Clowes
1978 ROTK10th Imp. Price Sticker stating ‘£5.50 net George Allen & Unwin’. No Sign of a Printed Price. Printed by Unwin Brothers
Then from the 1978 Lord of the Rings Boxset
1978 FOTR 10th Imp. £4.95 William Clowes
1978 TTT9th Imp. £4.95 William Clowes
1978 ROTK9th Imp. £4.95 William Clowes
Hope this info is of some help.
