Hi Terra-Anne, Welcome and thanks for posting! The two hardcovers are nice, later printings of "collector's editions" that were available for a long, long time. There's not too much resale value in any of them as collectibles, though they are nice books and certainly worth holding on to or passing on to someone as a gift. They have great quality paper for reading. They are both fourteenth printings of their respective editions.

The Ruth Noel book is a fun read, but has been supplanted over the years with much more accurate information published in various places. It is a sixth printing.

These a nice books to have in your collection!

I PMed you, Khamûl in regards to the information source. It is reliable.

I do agree that the impressions seem not to have been marked in the books by the printer.

I don't have definitive news on the PB bound as hardcover. Also I don't have one myself to look at in detail. Could someone provide a pic of the copyright page?

Based on what I heard from HC and what has been said here, I would venture a guess that the second impression of the Hb is the rebound PB. Just a guess though.

Welcome Finduriel! That is a wonderful collection it sounds like.

Lots of questions and enquiries are of course quite welcome. As Trotter says, feel free to post as many as you like.

He really is nice, and helpful!

Here is more information from our chat:

* 1st impression UK Hardcover: 25,000 copies in June 1998
-- These have the dual price dustjacket
-- BCA additional run of 8,500 copies - no price on dustjacket
-- Copies for USA edition, along with Swedish, French, Spanish and Norwegian translations also printed at this time

* 1st impression UK paperback: 6,000 copies, October 2000

* 2nd impression UK Hardcover: 5,000 copies in June 2001
-- these have the £24.99 dustjacket
-- (my understanding is these are reproduced from the paperback edition - didn't confirm yet).
-- BCA additional run of 3,500 copies - no price on dustjacket

* 3rd impression UK Hardcover: 10,000 copies in March 2002
-- these have the new spine to match the 2002 LOTR edition
-- Danish translation printed at this time

He feels that the impressions should be clearly marked on the copyright page, but doesn't have reference copies any more. I personally feel like perhaps that didn't happen fully as intended.
