1) 1963 deluxe box-set with Pauline baynes art. 2) 1992 lotr green box-set signed by Alan Lee and limited to 250 copies 3) The deluxe folio editions


I agree with garm, but having the single volume LOTR Deluxe signed by Alan Lee and the the three volume LOTR Deluxe set signed by Alan Lee, I prefer the single volume set.

It goes without saying that my current favourite book in my collection is the 1982 Super Deluxe Silmarllion, just wish it was numbered less than 100

It has the same ISBN in the pictures as my copy?

By looking at tolkienbooks.net, the title page shows the incorrect ISBN, further details below

The dust jacket has no price so may be a Book Club Edition as in my earlier post.

Good choices. I think I've got most of the LotRs I want. What I _need_ for the collection would be more in the line of academic / poetry stuff -

Songs for the Philologists

Sir Orfeo (1944) I know it's reprinted in Tolkien Studies, but I like originals.

A Little Book of Yorkshire Poetry

And of course a copy of the 1982 super deluxe Silmarillion, but that goes without saying.

Hi, i know it seems like i am only interested in Morgoths ring, lol but i found a copy on Ebay starting bid at £50.

there are photos which show it to be a first edition, however the ISBN is not the ones i have seen in the past for a first edition, first impression.

Could someone please tell me if this is indeed a first impression and perhaps why the ISBN is different.

i dont know if this will work but here is the link to the ebay page.
