Owned myself, was a set of the fiftieth anniversary Lord of the Rings/Hobbit paperbacks in the US (and I still cringe at the artwork...) I only post a sample of one of the book covers below to spare the faint of heart.

I was offered the original Michael Herring artwork once at reasonable prices, but didn't have to think too hard before declining.

My parents had first US edition hardcovers that I read and re-read many times growing up, those are still in the family collection but unfortunately I was not kind to the dustjackets. Not first impressions thankfully.

I have no idea which version of The Silmarillion was my first, but it was a US paperback from the 80s. I doubt I still have that particular copy (as I run across so many, I have taken to only keeping the best condition copies of each edition).

Growing up in the US has made my early collecting stories rather boring and uneventful, I am afraid. Only when I had the budget to shop online did anything truly noteworthy join the collection.

Hi Josh,

I believe I picked up a spare copy at the time, but have since moved and most of these materials are still boxed up. I will try to locate some time this week. If you have not found a copy elsewhere and haven't heard from me, feel free to ask again to remind me.

[Edit] It appears that this direct link still brings up the order form for this particular back issue - I have not tried it recently, please let me know if you do and it works.

Update: per responses below, this link does not work any more. Per this response from the magazine, you may be order via phone one of the last remaining copies.

I have an email address for an editor there, let me know if you want to reach out directly and I will PM/email it to you.

Very nice! I wasn't aware that was released yet, is it available for purchase somewhere online? (For those unaware, this is Richard Sturch's Latin translation of the Fellowship of the Ring).

My wife got me a very nice piece of elvish calligraphy and an edition of Beowulf I didn't have yet. Plus an afternoon free to go see BoFA in the theater (actually the only of the three Hobbit movies I went to the theater to see...)

Wow, that Old English Exodus went for a lot for an ex-library copy!

Hah! That's pretty optimistic (on Amazon's part as well as yours. )

Unfortunately I have spoken with HarperCollins about these in the past, and there are currently no plans to ever release the HoME books in ebook format besides the first two volumes already out, due to lack of demand.
