Still seems a bit steep(?), especially given the relatively depressed market. I have a copy that is actually a bit better than that one (that one on eBay has a bit of bumping to the head and the tail of the spine and the top-stain has faded a little), and I only paid 25 pounds for mine from a book-dealer on Abe. That was ten years (or more) ago, I suppose.

I asked HarperCollins about Encore.

"I believe Encore was a mail order label (a bookclub, not HarperCollins imprint) and assume that a small batch of boxes was run on for them as a one-off special sale. I don’t have any records as to how many, I’m afraid. I assume the books themselves are identical to the trade edition."


Thanks for clarifying that with HC, Trotter. Mystery solved.

Will need to keep an eye on them (as they occasionally come up for sale) to see which seems to be most common. There is a set on Abe in NSW (Australia) which is also an Encore version.

(Of course, Deagol will now need to update Tolkienbooks.net with an extra entry.)..
