Welcome Finduriel! That is a wonderful collection it sounds like.

Lots of questions and enquiries are of course quite welcome. As Trotter says, feel free to post as many as you like.

Dear all,

My name is Monica and I just found this forum. I should have found it a long time ago, but my internet skills are not as advanced as I first thought.

I live in Spain (sorry my English! It is not my mother tongue) and I mainly collect Hobbits. I recently reached the modest number of 111 books, Bilbo's age at the beginning of 'The Lord of the Rings'. I have been member to the Tolkien Society of Spain for 17-18 years, being a Board Member for 5 years, in charge of the international relationships for the last 6 years, and active researcher and translator from the beginning.

I hope to learn a lot from you, expert collectors, so get ready for tons of questions and enquiries

Thank you for your attention, and see you around

PS hope this post is in the right forum section.

I loved Night of the Nazgul when I was nipper!

Thanks, Jeremy. Very helpful indeed. Based on your contact's info, it seems there were 42,000 copies printed with the "common" UK dust jacket (including BCA editions) and 10,000 of the updated one that I'm looking for. Evidence would seem to indicate that the copyright pages of of the later impressions did not get updated as you say.

My odds should be about 1 in 5 with this edition. If anyone sees a fine copy with the updated jacket, let me know!
