It looks more like the Folcourt Press edition from 1969 by looking at the pictures on tolkienbooks.net (via archive.org)

Until Deagol fixes the site, you can use archive.org to see most of the information that used to be available. Archive.org can be a bit unfriendly, sometimes you need to refresh your browser to see the page, they also do not seem to have archived every entry so you may get some errors.

£468 - a bargain - mmmm
Oxfam sometimes have some odd copies for sale at reasonable prices but i think you will find ebay best bet. There is a nice set 1-9 i think up at moment - not sure what reserve is but certainly cheaper thans £468.

I too was having problems buying the index on Friday - gave up will try again later /tomorrow.

Hi Seany Boy
Oddly enough i was looking at this last night too. The seller is good and i have no reason to question reputation but his copy for sale does not look like the link above. The size of this item is 24.5 x 14.5 so it kind of fits in with sizes above and understand was purchased from a very very reputable Tolkien dealer but no watermark evident.

Were the booklets handed out at the lecture and then reprinted?
Cant imagine this to be true ?

Folks
Can anyone help here to understand printing order ?
Am sure tolkien books site would have helped if up and running!
Thanks

Hi laurel

Thanks for the advice. As you suggest, shopping around for early impressions via various sources is the option I've chosen. I imagine this will take several years, but it will be more fun that way (the hunt) and at least it won't be a single large sum coming out of my pocket at once.

For the record, here's the reply I received from HC when asking what discount was offered on the complete set:

---

Dear Mr Burns

Thank you for your recent e-mail to Harper Collins regarding the Tolkien print on demand series.

We are happy to offer you a 10% discount when ordering the whole series of 13 titles. The total of the order would therefore be £468.00 plus free delivery to UK.

As these are print on demand titles these books get made on a customers request, therefore the delivery time is roughly 28 working days.

Can you please advise if you wish to order these titles.

Kind regards
Michelle

---

Needless to say, I thanked Michelle but chose not to order at this time. Perhaps I'll order the hardback Index one day, but I think looking for copies already out there is a better way forward.

Anyone have favourite haunts for seeking out the HoME series? My plan was going to involve lots of Google, Amazon, Ebay and garage/yard/car boot sales. I'd be surprised to find something of this calibur in a bargain book shop.
