Being at work now, I cannot check my own copies, but I would expect it to appear in either The Art of the Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien or The Art of the Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien (both ed. by Hammond & Scull)


I can see similar sketches in The Art of the Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, but not exactly the same, looks like it only does appear in the first printing of the 1979 edition of 'Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien'. The later printing of Pictures that I have includes the published picture from the 1st UK impression of The Hobbit.

Yes, in some ways all that matters is the spine and slipcase as 99% of the time that is what you will see.


Great, my copy #205, when I bought it had a faded spine, 3 nicks in the leather, and no slipcase, so I had a matching slipcase made.

From Khamûl's list in this thread

2009: £588 [#205, unsigned, no slipcase]

Fails in every respect

I would think that in most cases, the higher priced items are later, but for UK books, on at least one edition of The Lord of the Rings, http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=45450, the price was cheaper for a later edition, so does not always hold true.
