i realise this sale on ebay has now ended but i was curious as to why you are not interested in it because it is unpriced?


The unpriced books are probably, though not necessarily, Book Club Editions or export editions, the priced copies are probably, though not necessarily, UK Trade editions. It is all as clear as mud.

Have a look at this article on tolkienbooks.net.

Thanks.

Thanks very much for that, Gawain. I'd heard of this set, but I don't think I've seen a picture before.
I don't go in much for translations, myself. (that would take up a lot more room!)

On the subject of the Folio Editions, you may be interested in knowing that there was a Danish translation boxed set of Lord of the Rings also published in 1977 coinciding with the original Folio one which also used Fraser's drawings of Queen Margarethe's originals.

I attach some photos.

Out of interest - - what would be the other two in your top three 'wish list'?
