1) 1963 deluxe box-set with Pauline baynes art. 2) 1992 lotr green box-set signed by Alan Lee and limited to 250 copies 3) The deluxe folio editions


I agree with garm, but having the single volume LOTR Deluxe signed by Alan Lee and the the three volume LOTR Deluxe set signed by Alan Lee, I prefer the single volume set.

It goes without saying that my current favourite book in my collection is the 1982 Super Deluxe Silmarllion, just wish it was numbered less than 100

It has the same ISBN in the pictures as my copy?

By looking at tolkienbooks.net, the title page shows the incorrect ISBN, further details below

The dust jacket has no price so may be a Book Club Edition as in my earlier post.

i realise this sale on ebay has now ended but i was curious as to why you are not interested in it because it is unpriced?


The unpriced books are probably, though not necessarily, Book Club Editions or export editions, the priced copies are probably, though not necessarily, UK Trade editions. It is all as clear as mud.

Have a look at this article on tolkienbooks.net.

It does not look like a lot of difference between these copies, according to tolkienbooks.net, apart from the later copies are in boxes and not slipcases.
