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.

Thanks, Deagol.

Yes, the ISBN for the A-format matches the one from my box set. I've reserved a copy of the B-format at Waterstones, so I'll post an update when I've got it.

That still leaves me the 2013 A-format to get hold of. Do you know if this can be sourced individually, or does it only come in a box set?
