I have a first impression of this book and it has the wrong ISBN on the title page 'ISBN 0002241951' appears on the verso of the title page. This is an error, as on tolkienbooks.net.

Thanks for reply Trotter, i came across that site but it said it was hacked or something?

So is the ISBN an error in all the first impressions of Morgoth's Ring or simply the one i was looking at has a different DJ to what it should have? Im getting confused, lol.

My goal is to eventually get all the HoME in first impression, first editions though being a student this will be difficult!

Ah ok, so the actual book itself is genuine first impression but the DJ is not, got that now!

The link was very useful thanks, i had seen it on here before but i didnt know which thread/topic is was in.


You say in your post from other thread, that you dont need to go any higher than £100 for Morgoth's Ring, the one i was looking at was on Abe books and cost £165. I wont be getting it now i know its not even all 1st impression!

Is there anywhere else to get HoME books from other than Ebay?

Thanks.

If Deagol's site was still available you would have been able to verify this yourself

Yes, in this title, the jacket does carry the incorrect ISBN. The copyright page is as below. The 2nd impression employed a line sequence (e.g. 23456789) --so if you see this: watch out, it's probably a 2nd impression (-don't have an image of this, sorry).

I gave an overview of prices recently in another thread.

Hope this helps.
