I also really dislike the "book scout" listings found on Amazon marketplace and ABE, where a (hard to find) title is listed as available for a ridiculous price - typically 10-20 times what other copies can be found at. The other copies come and go, so every now and then the high priced copy is the only one available. Some sucker occasionally buys that, and the scout just sits on the order for a week or two, hoping a cheap copy shows up again. If it does, they buy it and ship it off. If none show, they cancel the order and relist the book again a little later.

One other note. I have absolutely no idea why the collection has 1993 as the copyright date, as that is clearly not possible given the later dates noted by Deagol. I wonder if that was just a misprint for 1999. Was a different edition of this book released in 1993 and the mini book released in 1999 with the same initial copyright date? Findegil?

The pictures match the Houghton Mifflin edition that I have - the 1199 code on the front flap is the date of publication (nov 1999) and the 6-97117 code on the rear flap (printed just above that is "Houghton Mifflin" but your seller photo only shows the 'g' descender in the right place). I am certain this is the US edition. The British edition came out a month earlier in October. I don't have a British copy to compare with to know if it is at all different, but that's a 100% match to my US edition.

I weakly believe that there is no printing information in the book, and I am not even sure that they made multiple impressions.

Hope this helps...

[EDIT] The ISBN is blurry but legible if you know what it should be. The US ISBN is 0618009345 which matches your image. The British edition (I would consider that the first edition) should be 026110389X.

Ted Nasmith responded with the following, after checking his own copies:

There are 7 illustrations taken from The Silmarillion (illustrated), along with the majority from LotR and a handful from TH. None of the works published is being published for the first time, either.


Hope this helps!
