Personally, I'm quite looking forward to this release; primarily in terms of content.

In terms of price; if HarperCollins think they can shift 500 copies, at (say) £350 (even if it's over a few years), then that will probably be what they'll plumb for. CoH, with all the discounting has shifted. But it hardly does HarperCollins any good (as David Brawn alluded to) to flood the market with Super Deluxe signed Tolkien titles.

I think a run of 250, with the £350 tag would work for HarperCollins. Collectors would obviously prefer a 250 run with a £250 price tag. CoH with discount (30%) was available at £245; & this was even more favourable for US buyers -so I think £250 would be fair, considering the non-ME nature of the subject.

We'll see...

That's interesting.

I wonder what HC will do when the 'limited' copies are sold.

Are they going to use the 50th Edition cover again with impression number 5 and above, or more likely sell the book with the new cover as impression 5?

Just compared the 60th Anniv. to the 1st Printing of the 50th Anniv.

Same Size. Same binding except that the Gilt Design on the Front Cover of the 50th Edition is not present on the 60th.

Also the Gilt Titles on the Spine (including JRRT Logo) are larger on the 60th.

Text appears identical other than copyright page. No idea if any errors were corrected. Same number of pages etc. No Mention of 500 copies. Just the number 4 on the numberline.

So basically, it looks like a straightforward reprint with a New DJ. From the inside flap of the DJ it states 'This special edition, first published in 1999.......'

I don't have the book in front of me at the moment, but I didn't see anything like that when I had a quick look earlier.

At first glance, It just looks like a simple reprint of the 50th Anniversary Edition with a New Dustjacket Design.

From the Copyright Page, the Printing Number is 4. So basically a 4th Printing of the 1999 Edition with a New DJ stating 60th Anniversary.

I will have another look later.

I have just ordered a copy.

Out of interest does it state that it is limited to 500 copies in the book?
