I think about 40 printings of each of the books had Remington's artwork on them, but don't have definitive numbers in front of me. I will try to dig a little deeper.

I have a laminated first edition Bombadil that I will leave alone - given the discoloration, and general paper quality, I don't think there would be much left beyond a pulpy mess if I tried any sort of removal process.

My own personal opinion is that the dustjacket is better laminated (can still see art clearly and it is protected) but I haven't seen a successful removal yet, so it may actually look better if a good job is done. Either way, I don't think it would be anything near "very good" condition, and thus there's no real benefit to the removal except personal preference for aesthetics.

Hi Tapuvae,

yes, you tweeted to him - I will do so as well and point him to this discussion so hopefully he will be able to answer some of your questions (either there or here).

Also I will see if I can photograph or find existing pics of some of my Bakshi collectibles, as I think it would be fun to share.
