Deagol, tolkien.co.uk lists the standard hardback of Children of Hurin as having a publication date of 1 August 2013. I wondered at the time if this meant there was a second edition coming out, but it didn't seem to materialise. Do you have any thoughts on whether this date is significant? E.g. is it just a reprint of the first edition, or possibly an error on the website?

I'd seen the cover illustration for the A-format Silmarillion, but I wasn't sure if it was really being used for a book. I guess it is.

I've recently seen an illustration in a similar style for Unfinished Tales, but I wasn't aware of a new edition. Anyone know if this is genuine, or just a misleading stock image?

Hi, Deagol.

My A-formats of those LOTR film tie-ins are 7th impressions - a couple higher than you've listed.

Mine just turned up too. 13th impression - same as yours?

I've also a 2013 A-format on order, so we'll see what turns up.

Anyone any comments on the quality/format of the H/LR "Collector's Edition" boxset? Anyone noticed, or bought, the Hb "Film Tie-in Edition" (pocket) H?

Yes, I've got both. Apart from the words 'Now a major motion picture' on the front, I can't see anything that makes it a film tie-in version of The Hobbit. In all other respects, it's just another hardback issue.

The dust jacket is actually quite nice. It's based on Tolkien's original, but it uses a more naturalistic illustration. It's not immediately obvious, but when you open it out, you've got the Lonely Mountain in the centre, with a daytime scene on the right and night-time on the left - as per the original, but more in the style of a modern fantasy novel. I'm sure opinions will vary, but I quite like it.
