With reference to Tree and Leaf (from a couple of posts ago).

I found the book at http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/ and discounted also and with Free Worldwide Delivery (for me 6.20 Euros delivered).

It is probably available on Amazon, but as Amazon have not updated the stock photo, it is hard to be certain.

In any case, The Book Depository (who actually also sell on Amazon as a 3rd Party Seller) seems to be a good deal, especially with the Free Delivery.

Just placed the order, so have not received the book yet, but I have ordered from them before (but through Amazon as I did not know they had their own website) - and all was well with previous orders.

Anyway, just thought this information may be useful for buyers outside the UK as with a weak sterling and free worldwide delivery, it makes purchasing from them quite economical (and cheaper than ordering through Harpercollins own website also - even with the 30% discount).

They seem to have pretty much the full range of Tolkien Editions available also.

Just compared the 60th Anniv. to the 1st Printing of the 50th Anniv.

Same Size. Same binding except that the Gilt Design on the Front Cover of the 50th Edition is not present on the 60th.

Also the Gilt Titles on the Spine (including JRRT Logo) are larger on the 60th.

Text appears identical other than copyright page. No idea if any errors were corrected. Same number of pages etc. No Mention of 500 copies. Just the number 4 on the numberline.

So basically, it looks like a straightforward reprint with a New DJ. From the inside flap of the DJ it states 'This special edition, first published in 1999.......'

I don't have the book in front of me at the moment, but I didn't see anything like that when I had a quick look earlier.

At first glance, It just looks like a simple reprint of the 50th Anniversary Edition with a New Dustjacket Design.

From the Copyright Page, the Printing Number is 4. So basically a 4th Printing of the 1999 Edition with a New DJ stating 60th Anniversary.

I will have another look later.

I ordered this book from a 3rd Party Seller on Amazon (after emailing to check that the DJ showed '60th Annviversary').

Arrived today and all looks okay. DJ does indeed state '60th Anniversary' on the DJ cover.

So looks like the book is in print. Not sure why it has not appeared on the tolkien.co.uk website yet though.

Thanks for the information alpingloin.

I am surprised they have sold as far as copy number 340. At a guess (and considering that they can now sell to the USA), this edition may sell out by mid next year. Much quicker than I thought with the price at £350. Of course, Sterling has depreciated dramatically against all other currencies in the past number of months, so I suppose it has been getting cheaper as the year has progressed. And with the additional 10% discount coupon and their large reduction in postage charges (previously £36 to Europe), it has become more reasonable to purchase.
