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.

If anyone has the 2nd printing of the 4th edition, from 1979, would you mind checking if it has a printed price or price-sticker, which should be £4.50.

I am trying to test a theory that this was the last edition that George Allen & Unwin actually printed the price on the dust-jacket, and for future hardback Hobbits used price stickers.

eBay Item #182260172301

Not sure if I have seen a copy with this bad a red fading on the dust-jacket spine before, in this case completely gone.

The blue is also badly faded.

If you have a set of these, then keep them out of the light or may end up like this.

You can see the original spines on the award winning tolkienbooks.net, http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=82480
