I think Stu will be able to answer this one better than I can... for what it's worth: Silmarillion had at least a second print but I would make a guess that Arthur, UT and Kullervo still have not.

The first impressions of the UK 12 volume set all had full color frontispieces. Later impressions had those in black and white. I don't have any of the POD versions, so I don't know which they went with there - I know you said you weren't going to order POD directly, but they are also in the secondary market now too...

There are 12 volumes of History, so the Index is the 13th. The Index has only ever been issued separately in hardcover via POD. The twelve volumes each have their own Index (the 13th volume just combines and unifies those separate Indices into one). The three volume editions maintain the paginations for each of the volumes they contain, so the POD index should work with them too.

I don't think there have ever been any textual changes made to HoMe. Someone here will correct me on anything I've gotten wrong I am sure...

I'm going to purchase some edition of HoME, but haven't yet decided between getting the 12 books (hardcovers) individually and getting the set of 3.

Aside from cost, are there any substantive differences I should be aware of? For example, the 3-volume set was assembled more recently; if that means it has slightly updated content, that would matter to me. Also of interest: illustrations (if one has more, or better, illustrations (if there are any to begin with)), notes, footnotes, other references etc. (I want them).

Related question: is the 12-volume set 12 volumes of history + 1 index (13 total books) or 11 volumes of history + 1 index (12 total books)?

FYI, I know there have been varying dustjacket designs for the individual hardcovers; I don't care about those and they wouldn't factor into my choice. Also, if I go the 12-volume route, I would be picking them up second-hand and not POD through tolkien.co.uk.

What about the rest of the deluxe editions other than LOTR and TH (which I'm assuming are long past their first edition prints)?

Edit: And beside Tales From the Perilus Realm which I know about.

..adding some more sellers to my exclusion list. Does this mean I'll never have to see that 'first 10 impressions of The Hobbit' listing again!? My life won't be the same without it!


Trust me, it is a wonderful thing. Lee1976Lee (or whatever his handle is) got banished as well. I only have to get annoyed when these guys' auctions get posted up here now.
