The current three volume standard hardbacks are huge though. That would look quite odd in the current deluxe style; very thick.

Does the Voyager imprint ever produce any editions of any author in hardback? This is interesting, if a little unusual sounding. Do we think this is going to be in the current "deluxe" style except in black (a colour not used yet)? No mention of paper. Can't be regular paper surely.

Going back to the "1995" typo: The reason for the error perhaps being introduced is that the copyright page incorporated the estate copyright blurb after the 2nd impression. Other than this, the copyright pages are identical. Maybe when they made this change the 1992/1995 error occurred.

My first impression seems to be signed by John Howe...

Aye, I have all of those. Was just checking...

The 3rd impression is basically the same as the 1st & 2nd impressions (line number to denote impression) except the date reads "1995". It looks like a typo, hence Neil's entry on tolkienbooks; stating the "1995 edition 3rd impression" is in reality the 3rd impression of the 1992 edition.

I don't have the 4th impression, but the copyright page (if I recall correctly) looks the same.
