J.R.R. Tolkien-"The Fellowship Of The Rings"-1965-Houghton Mifflin-5 1/2" X 8 1/2"-421 pages-Hardcover Book-With Map- Signed By Author.English writer J.R.R. Tolkien is a towering figure in fantasy literature. He wrote the novel The Hobbit (1937) and the classic trilogy The Lord of the Rings (published 1954-56): highly imaginative tales of elves, dwarves, and wizards in a land known as Middle Earth. The hobbits Bilbo and Frodo Baggins and the wizard Gandalf figured prominently in these stories and became Tolkien's best-known characters. Tolkien was an expert linguist and a longtime professor of language and literature at Oxford University. He was also part of C.S. Lewis's informal group of scholars and writers known as "The Inklings." The three books which make up The Lord of the Rings are The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King... A live-action film trilogy of The Lord of the Rings, directed by Peter Jackson, was a great box-office success; the first film in the trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring, was released in December of 2001, followed by sequels in December of 2002 and 2003. Those films starred Elijah Wood as Frodo, Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn and Cate Blanchett as Galadriel... Tolkien's colleagues at Oxford included the famed poet and author Robert Graves... In 2006 one of Tolkien's sons, Christopher Tolkien, announced the completion of the 30-year editing process for the publication of his father's work The Children of Hurin.The book has been autographed on the title page by J.R.R. Tolkien with a fountain pen in brown.........BOTH BOOK AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.

What do we do?

I have several of such books... they are author copies.
They are either unnumbered or get the initials of those who they are for. Like I have some copies with PC in them.

Do you know the following copy of the Hobbit?

http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/tolkien-book-store/CLP0052.htm

It reminds me of the Taiwanese editions, but is not the same...
Just mentions HmCo on the jacket, printed by Houghton Mifflin and a 1966 date.

Further has something that looks like Chinese characters... but no other info.

The red boards are similar to a Fellowship of the Ring copy I hold, that also shows the same Chinese characters and no further info either.

Is this some kind of pirated edition? The paper is of extreme low quality
and the book is very thin (like the taiwanese hobbit).


Got one reaction so far from Wayne Hammond and Christina Scull:

"We haven't seen this edition, but agree that it appears to be a Chinese pirate."
