I will forward your request to the Mythsoc mailing list to see if anyone can help with the comparison. The back issue of Mythlore is available from the back issues website here:

http://www.mythsoc.org/mythlore/history/

That particular issue is $3.50 plus shipping. If you need help ordering (don't like Paypal or whatnot) let me know and I can help out.

Probably the same article appears in Orcrist #7 (1972-73). I don't have a copy of that issue of Orcrist right now, unfortunately. A citation refers to the Orcrist article as her dissertation "epitomized in" the Orcrist article, so it is probably rewritten for a wider audience. Sorry for the long link! (http://books.google.com/books?id=FCaM ... ve%20Technique%22&f=false)

Tangentially related, I found the following paper online that refers to the one you are looking for (good further reading maybe):

Here is another good one. A lot of them claim to be 'Rare.' However, not many make claims like this!

I have never been particularly fond of this edition of S&G. I got my copy as soon as it came out, opened it, inspected it, and promptly sold it on ebay (got my money back, too!). I have really enjoyed the Super Deluxe Children of Hurin. It is a fine book, well made, and fairly striking in appearance. The Super Deluxe Sigurd and Gudrun, however, just seems far too plain and boring. It just doesn't have that nice feel to it that a very fine edition should have.

While similar in specs to the SD COH, it was produced at a different bindery, and is just not the same quality as the COH. Unless you really just need to have an 'example' of this book in order to have a more 'complete' Tolkien collection, the standard deluxe is a better buy. For my money, I would much rather leave this one out of my collection.

Harper Collins just didn't pull this one off, in my opinion (of course). It would have been a much more compelling edition, had it been bound in goat leather (and a darker, richer color, I might add), and then limited to 100 copies. Instead, it was bound in a very soft (almost suede-llike) leather, and 500 copies were printed. Oh, and the color reminds me of, well... I can't really come up with anything, but if I could, it wouldn't be nice.
