Embarrassingly, Doug has included a quote from the review I wrote for Tolkien Library on the back cover of the paperback!

Just for information, the original Hb had two impressions; OOP from the publisher. It has now been reprinted (or is just about to be) again (with a few corrections; also included in the Pb) in a slightly altered format: the cover has been changed slightly in layout, and is now (I think) without jacket. (Illustrative boards I assume.) This can be viewed here:-

Rowman & Littlefield

The Book Depository prices seem to have gone up. The cheapest UK price for the Pb still seems to be on Amazon, currently available to pre-order.

I read on Doug Anderson's blog that copies had been received of TS VIII. Does anyone have any idea where this can be ordered from? Apparently the WVUP site is not working (according to Doug); & it's not listed on Amazon UK or US. Plenty of time, but just curious.

I agree with Khamul that second impressions aren't very sought after, though you could probably get something for it. Your best bet is probably to post it on ebay with a low starting bid and see what happens.

"VG" can mean different things to different people. Other factors bringing the price down might include: the price being clipped; just a poorer (i.e. VG-) jacket generally; or perhaps the top page edge a little faded. Those points aside, your copy is a 2nd impression --and this devalues it (in comparison to a 1st edition/1st impression) more than anything. £10 perhaps? HoME books, in general, aren't really selling that well I don't think.
