Ok, could be wrong on this, like a lot of times in the past :)

i.e. compare with the Deluxe Hobbit copyright page, which lists the editions and copyright from 1937?

These fill the whole page, so start at the top, but are aligned to the bottom of the copyright page.

Can anyone give any examples of any UK HC Deluxe editions that are not aligned to the bottom of the Copyright page?

Yes mine is like that as well, this is because this is the first printing, no reprints are listed so it only takes up half the page and they align with the bottom of the page and not the top.

I'm wondering if early printings of this edition were bound in cloth. I have the 6 matching, oversized illustrated volumes (3 LotR, Hobbit, Sil, Foster's Guide) all of which are bound in lovely cloth - except for The Silmarillion. Mine is a 6th printing, bound in cheap blue paper at our favorite Printing Express in Hong Kong. If early printings are cloth-bound, I'd like to find one. TolkienBooks.net interestingly notes that the first printing has a fold-out map and misspells "Naysmith" on the dj.


"Naysmith" is spelt incorrectly on the spine, but is spelt correctly as "Naismith" on the dust-jacket. The edition is printed in Belgium and looks to me like cloth and not paper

Well they could also release Letters By Tolkien, The Father Christmas Letters, Mr. Bliss... who knows.


Yes, but these could have already been released, and you could add Roverandom, plus a lot more to the list

I still think the two titles that I mentioned are the most likely to be the last deluxe editions, but as you said who knows.

I did not expect HOME to have a deluxe version, so you may be right
