Deagol, on his excellent site states

"The print run was 2,500 copies.

This edition was issued with two ISBN numbers:

ISBN 9780007286188 - The standard issue.
ISBN 9780007237159 - A limited edition of 500 copies signed by Alan Lee
."

So, were 3000 copies issued, of which 500 were signed by Alan Lee, or 2500 of which 500 were signed by Alan Lee?

I think that it was probably 2500, am I correct?

"We met up with John Garth, author of Tolkien and the Great War and the newly published Tolkien at Exeter College, at Oxonmoot to talk about his work and the upcoming centenary of Middle-earth next Wednesday."

Exeter publishes history of Tolkien's life at Exeter College

Exeter College has published a fascinating 64-page booklet about the life of JRR Tolkien at Exeter College, written by John Garth, acclaimed author of Tolkien and the Great War.

Tolkien at Exeter College: How an Oxford undergraduate created Middle-earth is the story of JRR Tolkien’s life as an undergraduate at Exeter College, from peacetime into war. It is also the tale of how he first created his mythological world in 1914–15.
Rich with archive material and original sketches by Tolkien – some never before seen – Tolkien at Exeter College is essential reading for anyone interested in Tolkien, Oxford, and the histories of Britain and of Middle-earth.

The booklet is available to purchase for £8 from the Development Office. Email development@exeter.ox.ac.uk or call 01865 279619 to purchase a copy today.
