I have to admit, I've never searched for a book online using the books ISBN. So I look for pre-ISBN books... in the same way I look for ISBN books!

Ah phooey, just a few months ago I donated about twenty sets of this edition to the library since I was moving. I will take a look around through the weekend and see if I can find another spare set I could send you.

In the meantime, to your most recent question:

Now, for seasoned collectors here, how do I go about collecting a specific edition without ISBN?


A good question, specifically for Lord of the Rings paperbacks - the copyright date did not change when the cover art did, so (as you have found), basing your shopping on this point will just as likely get you the wrong edition as the right one. Sometimes seeing the cover artist in the description will help - for example, there is only one edition with Barbara Remington cover art, so that helps in your case. Even using ISBN does not always help, as cover art (and sometimes text version!) changes with no change to ISBN.

Your best, most secure bet is to see the book in question - either images included in the listing (but be sure it doesn't say "stock photo"!) or by asking the seller to provide you an image of the actual book. For an inexpensive edition such as this one, eBay might be more useful as you can usually see exactly what you will be getting.

A quick search turned up these on eBay:

eBay Item #331450756760

eBay Item #151559121973

I hope this helps! Thanks for stopping in and asking.
