Hello all, I am new here but not new to Tolkien collecting.

I have two questions:

For the CoH Deluxe Edition, first print - I've seen for sale some signed by CT and AL on a plate, some signed only by AL on the title page, and some un-signed. Are all these official versions of the book?


I attended this event at Waterstones in Picadilly in 2007 (http://www.gettyimages.co.uk/photos/t ... %20hurin&family=editorial) and was able to buy a UK signed ordinary and Deluxe copy of CoH.

More information on the these signed copies here and be aware that some fakes were made as well of the bookplate.

I don't think that the S&G Deluxe Edition has been reprinted, so any copies that you are likely to see on the second-hand market are probably first prints, but ask the seller to check the number-line if it is not sealed still.

As an aside, if you look at the Getty Images, the individual in the red-shirt is Adam Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien's son.

I'd watch the video, it is very funny, he has no clue

They will not be working into the next millennia, the Tolkien Estate's copyright on items that are J.R.R. Tolkien copyrighted, does not last for ever, only eight years left in some parts of the world.

Canada and New Zealand are examples where due to current copyright laws, anything written by J.R.R. Tolkien would be public domain on the 1st January 2024, as it would 50 years after his death, i.e. he could sell the rings with no license payment after this date in Canada or New Zealand.

The reason that it is not 2023 is that it is the end of the year after the 50th Anniversary.

I think this is why they are stepping up the enforcement, which they are allowed to do, and rightly so as they own the copyright, but also they have a limited time left.

One ring to fool them all: court orders destruction of fake Tolkien jewellery.

http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/one ... lery-20160811-gqqhpc.html

The seller has posted a video on youtube, in which he states he does not understand why they are picking on him. Clearly has no idea about copyright law and the whole thing appears to gone over his head.



This is the court judgement.

I have just received a marketing emailing from HarperCollins, about the facsimile Hobbit, using the image below, which is nothing like the original dustjacket. Very unhappy at the moment with HarperCollins.
