Perhaps I could just ask something more specific:

Does anyone have the first set I mentioned?

1. 2012 A-format: ISBN-10: 0007509847/ISBN-13: 9780007509843

If so, I'd be very grateful to know in what country it was printed. All of the copies I've seen of this set have been printed in the US (although they were published by HarperCollins), most likely for sale in Canada. I'm wondering if there is a matching set that was issued and printed in the UK and if so, is the ISBN identical or different from the edition above?

I know paperbacks (and especially these more recent editions) don't interest many members here, but surely there must be other completists out there!


Just had a look at my copy of this set.

ISBN on the box-set is 978-0-00-750984-3 published by HarperCollins for £30 UK.

The Hobbit - ISBN 978-0-00-748729-5 5th impression, printed in GB by Clays Ltd.
FOTR - ISBN 978-0-00-748830-8 5th impression, printed in GB by Clays Ltd.
TT - ISBN 978-0-00-748832-2 5th impression, printed in GB by Clays Ltd.
ROTK - ISBN 978-0-00-748834-6 5th impression, printed in GB by Clays Ltd.

Looks to be the same item as before, from the same location, but a different fake signature.

Very strange.

Ok, could be wrong on this, like a lot of times in the past :)

i.e. compare with the Deluxe Hobbit copyright page, which lists the editions and copyright from 1937?

These fill the whole page, so start at the top, but are aligned to the bottom of the copyright page.

Can anyone give any examples of any UK HC Deluxe editions that are not aligned to the bottom of the Copyright page?

Yes mine is like that as well, this is because this is the first printing, no reprints are listed so it only takes up half the page and they align with the bottom of the page and not the top.
