Friends are selling a nice copy of LotR, and I said I would try to find out how much it is worth. It is described thus:
"The Lord of the Rings Boxed Set, Second, Revised Edition (said on cover) Pics are below, with captions. Fellowship of the Ring states it is a Fourth Printing, but The Two Towers and The Return of the King indicate they are Third Printings."

For those of you on Facebook, photos are here:

They also have an Amazon store with quite a bit of fantasy and scifi listed:

Belatedly -

The essay is by Cor Blok, and is entitled, "Pictures to accompany a great story." It occupies the first four pages of the calendar (although about a third of the second page, and a small part of the fourth page, are taken up by illustrations); the text is large and well-spaced, so the essay is rather shorter than you might expect from a simple "four page" description. Cor Blok comments on his approach to Tolkien illustration in general (although he does say, "This is why I refer to my work on 'The Lord of the Rings' as 'accompanying' rather than 'illustrating' the story). He also talks about the two pictures included with the text ('In The Golden Hall' and 'The Oliphaunt' - the latter is also on the cover).

Hope this helps.

My question to Trotter, and particularly to Wayne & Christina, is: do your copies carry the original printed price? --or have they been re-priced?

My copy also has the original printed price £4.95.

One last (picky!) point to Trotter. The separate Clowes 'printings' (as you call them) are states. And, the Unwin Brothers 5th impression also had the intermediate GA&U-paper state (like Clowes); as well as the GA&U-cloth state, and the BCA copy. (Unrecorded, I'm sure for space reasons!, by Hammond...)

I was thinking more of the printing change on page 352 (italic and nonitalic and in the Ulmo entry) of the book than the difference between the headbands, and paper and cloth bindings, which is why I describe them as printings and not states.

3 printings - 1st with the and in italics, 2nd with the and not in italics and 3rd as a Second Impression.
