Just a quick question on this one:

http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=27100

Is this a stock photo?

The edition I have (matching this ISBN) has a film cover and is a 1st Printing (HarperCollins Childrens Books). It has the sticker on it also. I ordered it a day or two after it was released. The stock photo on Amazon I think is incorrect. I have not seen a John Howe cover.

Here is what mine looks like:

eBay Item #221360072114

Have I got this wrong or am I confused?


No it is not a stock photo! There are two HarperCollins Children's Books editions - 2012 and 2013. 2012 has the film cover and 2013 has the John Howe Smaug. I managed to miss the 2012 version when it came out and didn't realized until I read Tolkien Collector No.33. [Incidentally, TC33 has a typo on the year - it should read 2012 not 2011.]

I now have copies of the 2012 and 2013 editions in hand.


Thanks Deagol. I am (still) rather confused by this one. I will order the one with the John Howe cover.

Did you notice that the 2012 and 2013 Children's Editions both have the same ISBN (and both apparently stated first impressions with different covers)

http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=26800

I think this is what may have led to my original confusion in presuming that the John Howe cover was a stock photo!

Too many editions too fast to keep track of.......

Many Thanks again.

Deagol,

Great to see updates on the site again. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

The edition I have (matching this ISBN) has a film cover and is a 1st Printing (Harpercollins Childrens Books). It has the sticker on it also. I ordered it a day or two after it was released. The stock photo on Amazon I think is incorrect. I have not seen a John Howe cover.

Also there is another paperback not on your site (an international film tie in edition):

ISBN: 0007525508

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Hobbit-J- ... r=8-1&keywords=0007525508

Cover is identical to ISBN: 0007525494, but it is a smaller format book.

Thanks again for a fantastic site!

Book shows in stock and available at the Book Depository when I check. Also the UK site has the book about 20% cheaper than the US Site
