Thanks I think you are right.

"For this impression changes were made to the lettering on the upper and lower covers as well as to the spine." from tolkienbooks.net

I am very interested in the spine, does anyone know how many changes were made and what they look like for this edition?

I saw this picture on Twitter from @AndyBirdUK and am interested in the third book down from the top?

I am guessing it is this one http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=45250, but it would nice to make sure

Are you sure that this is a Michael Tolkien signature, never seen him sign his name like this.

I have posted all three videos now, and they are very good apart from a technical problem in the first video with the webcam, I ended up just listening to the audio from Dr Shippey.

Both Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien and The Art of The Lord of The Rings contain JRRT's artwork for LOTR. How do they compare to each other? Does one have more images? Any quality issues?


These are very different books, Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien was the first book to come out, apart from yearly calendars, that contained Tolkien's illustrations, but has been very much superseded by Scull & Hammond's excellent three books on Tolkien's illustrations, J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator, The Art of the Hobbit and The Art of the Lord of Rings.

To answer your question on images, a lot more in these books and a much more comprehensive description about the images than is in Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien, and on quality, all four are very good.

From a Tolkien as an illustrator point of view, I would go for Scull & Hammond's books first, but as a collector then all four of them.
