I had a suspicion that was the 5 minutes you were talking about (that's what triggered my memory to go digging for the reference). Nigel is really a nice person, glad he was able to help you out!

You may be interested in the Church House Archive recording mentioned in this post...

http://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/n ... ost_id=4042#forumpost4042

Unfortunately only ten copies were made available.

Its been a while since I listened to it, so I don't recall how much material made it onto the recording (not everything).

I found this (short) interview with Simon (grandson of JRR) touching.

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.
