I have the 4th Impression 1969 of the GA&U 2nd Edition LOTR. The price is 25 shillings (printed on the dustwrapper) and all three volumes are printed by Jarrold and Son.

I have a 10th impression (1963) of ROTK. Unfortunately the dustjacket says 11th impression (unclipped, 25s net on front flap, trilogy advertised 8vo 25s net each on rear flap. There is no "price per set" on the rear flap like some earlier (1960) impressions I have). Matching age wear says this dustjacket is original to the book, though.

Thanks, Beren.

What was that line in LotR about the praise of the praiseworthy?

hello everyone.

the signature looks genuine to me

I have a 1st Us Ed of the Silmarillion (with good provenance), signed on the title page by Christopher Tolkien in 1987, and it looks exactly like the one on the signed card posted by Deagol.

As for the C. Tolkien signature in the Limited 1998 edition, if you had the task of signing 500 books; would'nt your signature be done very rapidly and scrawl like and be very distorted from your normal signature?

Don't know what happened to the last post. Trying again....

Hi Deagol,

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.
