I have to agree with Khamul's comments on this.

Deagol has done a fantastic job of documenting the UK books and to do the same for the US editions would involve two things.

1 - Actually having all the books in one collection.
2 - Spending many hundreds of hours documenting them on a web site.

So for these two reasons I think it is unlikely that a web site as comprehensive as Deagol's will exist for US books.

Here is the link that Khamul forgot to insert for The Holford Collection... in his previous post in case you have not seen it.

In the meantime this site does have quite a lot of information on US Editions.

Deagol,

Thanks for that, extremely helpful as always.

Does anyone know the UK price that this impression (9th) was sold at?

I still have a few problems with the sticker.

Any UK bookshop at the time could not set the price, it was set by the publisher, so it should be on the book

Is this label and The Silmarillion labels you mentioned possibly for export or was another sticker also on the book?

My copy of the Ninth Impression 1975 version of the book is not price clipped but has a big dark light blue A & U Sticker over the price.

Does anyone know what the price was under the label, if I hold it up to the light, it could be £1.45 and also any ideas about why the sticker does not have a new price on it?

I suggested that it may have been John Tolkien, but did not really believe it as it clearly was a fake.

Ebay claims to be bothered about counterfeit items (which includes fake signatures). However they make it very hard to report and appear to take very little notice when they are reported. Sadly they are just interested in their commission.
