Harpercollins - Gold Ring on Chain???

I was wondering would anyone have any information on a Gold Ring on Chain (The One Ring) that was issued by Harpercollins.

Normally I would not have much interest in an item like this (books being the main focus), but the fact that it was issued by the publisher made it more interesting. It was included in an auction for a 1997 LOTR Deluxe and a 1999 Hobbit Deluxe (The limited editions of 1000 and 2500). In the listing the Seller stated that the Ring was issued by the publishers in a limited edition of 200. I was surprised that I had not come across one of these before this.

The package has arrived and it does indeed have the Harpercollins logo on the Front of the Ring Box (A Black Box with Harpercollins Logo in Gilt on the Top). The Ring is Engraved with a Runic Inscription.

So, I am just curious does anyone know anything more about this item.

- Was it issued prior to the Release of the Films or was it issued in celebration of the Films.

- Was it indeed limited to 200.

- What price it retailed at. etc. etc.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks.

I will be attending the ADC event on Saturday afternoon through Monday morning sometime.

He now has two full floors so there will be more room and more artwork on display.

Be sure to look me up when there. Just ask Andy where Joe Kraemer is and he'll point you in the right direction.

Ran across David Miller's (The Tolkien Bookshelf on ABE) listing for the following two items:


This offering is for two seperate books, 'Some Contributions to Middle-English Lexicography' by J.R.R. Tolkien, and 'The Finn Episode in Beowulf' by R.A. Williams. The Finn Episode in Beowulf is signed by J.R.R. Tolkien to the front free endpaper 'Tolkien' in his distinctive early (1920's) style, with the 3 dots below. Further down the page, in pencil, in what looks to be Tolkien's writing, 'A very bad book'. Very likely from Tolkien own library, with a small Blackwell Booksellers, Oxford sticker to the bottom of the front endpaper. Slightly browned, original cloth, Cambridge University Press 1924. This copy has some scattered foxing mainly on the half title page. Also included with this book is the offprint from the Review of English Studies, Vol. 1. No. 2 April, 1925, 'Some Contributions to Middle-English Lexicography' by J.R.R. Tolkien. Original printed wrappers, margins a little creased and slightly faded, printed by Sidgwick & Jackson, London 1925. This copy is in Very Good condition, no foxing or writing, only fault to note is the rounding of the fore edge from being incorrectly shelved, and bending around the accompanying book. An unusual opportunity to acquire two items for the discerning Tolkien Collector.

$4000

Thanks, Trotter. That's great info. Crazy that such a small difference ever is even noticed. I guess that's the job of good editors. It so happens that I have one of the first and two of the second. Thanks again!
