Thanks for that, Trotter. Still haven't got to that point yet - I can't seem to get past someone's excruciating version of 'my old man's a dustman'. Awful!

Meanwhile, I have another link here, from our friends over at Middle earth Journeys.

Just started - their reports of Oxonmoot are detailed, and entertaining; so I look forward to continuing my reading of their Welsh reports.

I was just trying to find out about all The Silmarillion copies and this has turned in to quite an interesting thread. Thanks everyone for the comments.

Looking over my bookcases, I guess I'm pretty much the same as the rest of you with my duplicate and multiple copies of various books (though I only own a few copies of The Silmarillion).

I do have 4 sets of the Tolkien Companion and Guide, which is rather peculiar. Don't get me wrong; the 2 volume set is indispensable, but do I really need 4 sets? I think I had planned to sell some of these on eBay at some point but never got around to it. I guess that is the case with a number of extra copies I have lying about.

It does not look like a lot of difference between these copies, according to tolkienbooks.net, apart from the later copies are in boxes and not slipcases.

Hi everyone. I think this book (or more accurately a later edition of it) is going to be my next purchase. However, it seems a later edition can be picked up for around £60 at best, whereas a 1st is more like £400. My question is are there any major differences between different editions? My friend has a stunning 1982 edition and it's so nice but I would like to make sure it is pretty much the same as the first edition before I hunt one down. I am just looking for a quality book rather than something which is financially valuable. Thanks
