I remember seeing three editions, all in the green leather:

The Hobbit - 1979 Folio Society Edition
Roverandom - 1998 HarperCollins First Edition
The Silmarillion - 1977 A&U First Edition

-Deagol


In your own collection?...

Seriously, does anyone (besides Pieter) actually have any of these? Especially interested in that rebound Silmarillion! Were the other two similarly limited Deagol/Beren? (to just 25 copies)
