Hi,

It appears you have a 3rd Impression from 1963.

As to value, unfortunately looks like not very much. There are a number of copies on ABE as follows:

I haven't examined the text at all and am not sure if any of the text has been revised.

But as to physical size. It is indeed quite a bit larger than the earlier edition. It measures 7.75 Inches x 5 Inches x 2 Inches and has 894 Numbered Pages.

It matches the New Children of Hurin, 3 Vol Lord of the Rings, Alan Lee Illustrated Hobbit and the History of the Hobbit Paperbacks (8 Paperbacks in all) - All published on the same day.

Hi Jeremy,

Excellent detective work! Many Thanks indeed for that. That certainly makes a lot of sense and explains why I had not come across one before.

I actually acquired it from a UK Seller. Maybe it was someone working in Harpercollins at the time who decided to keep one for themselves. In any case, it is great to know the background to the item. I am very grateful for your time spent in researching this. I could not find anything at all online about it myself.

Many Thanks Again!!!

Hi Jeremy,

Many Thanks for trying to find out some information on the Ring. Much Appreciated indeed.

I tried to search online myself, but as of yet I have not found anything useful.

Maybe they were privately issued by the publisher rather than being sold at retail (pure speculation).

I will take a couple of photos tomorrow and post them here.

Many Thanks Again!
