It will depend on the publisher.

[without a number line underneath]

Second Impressions will have:

10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2


Volumes 5-8 - Unwin Hyman
First Impressions will have something along the lines of:
First published in Great Britain by Unwin Hyman, an imprint of Unwin Hyman Limited, 19xx
[without details of reprints underneath]

Second Impressions will have:

Prices are a bit subjective. As a rough guide maybe 20-40 GBP for the first 9 volumes, then 100 GBP for vol. 10, 175 GBP for vol.11 and 250 GBP for vol.12. Khamul might give you a better idea.

Hope this helps.

I really love this website, great people also very well versed in Tolkien! Also I appreciate very much the willingness to answer some more mundane questions. I would like to know how to tell the difference of 1st/1st UK printings (I know at least some will be very evident in that they have a II somewhere on the copyright page). In particular The Return of the Shadow and The Treason of Isengard. Also, if possible. the relative monetary worth of each. Also in the previous post tolkienbooks.net was mentioned, and i can't express how much that site has helped and guided me, superb job!

Not sure why I've put this in the Collector's Forum; suppose I should have put it in the General Discussion section. Anyway...

The Worlds of Fantasy
BBC4 Wednesday 27th February 9pm
3 part series (? I think)

Tonights 1hr programme dealt with child (hero) characters in Fantasy; C S Lewis was briefly touched upon. Generally poor; but next week deals with the 'giants' of the genre, including Tolkien.

Might be worth tuning into. Although judging by the content of the first programme, it will probably be totally infuriating!

Hello everybody... Not that I would like to do necroposting but I saw your thread and if Rowns is still interested in the "collector corner" related to Mithril, there is a website / database / gallery / mailboard talking about all aspects of Mithril...

It is unofficial but it retraces Mithril history back in 1988 and all figurines from this time are not available nor discussed at all at Mithril.ie

The url is : http://mithril.faerylands.net

The database is currently under work I am refilling all the info reguarding it, but the forum along with the gallery can provide a lot of interesting collector info (and the database has the average price for all rare figurines , some can reach 500€ and as you said, one reached $2000.

Feel free to visit, and ask questions about it if interested.

Regards,

Gildor

Smaug and Tolkien get a mention from Jeremy!... Paxman that is; not TCG's Jeremy
