I think it is essentially a re-issue, but the Hammond & Scull companion volume has been updated (perhaps Findegil can confirm that?)


The picture of the boxed set on HarperCollins' site is of the one issued in 2005, so one shouldn't judge by that. The new (further corrected and augmented) hardback edition of our Reader's Companion will have a slightly different dust-jacket. As for The Lord of the Rings, our understanding is that the new three-volume edition will be a reprint of the existing text, not reset, and without further corrections (though this last remains to be seen). The new one-volume edition, however, will be reset and will include at least some of the corrections we've listed in our online addenda and corrigenda; this will have new pagination, with the index revised to suit. We have not had direct involvement with the reset edition except to comment on a further correction (which was approved by Christopher Tolkien), and to revise our 'Note on the Anniversary Edition'; and we've not been informed of any correction or emendation beyond this, which is not to say that there has been none, and as Urulöké remarks, resetting often produces new errors. We'll know better when we get copies.

Christina and I have a copy also, a wedding gift from Rayner Unwin. A scan of the copyright page is below. I made the initial description of this edition for my Tolkien bibliography from the deposit copy in the British Library (acquired 11 July 1966).

Edit: Trotter inserted picture directly into post, and if you look at the picture you can see two signatures through the page

We have a first printing, 2008, in the boxed set, which we purchased on 14 February 2009 from a German seller (through abebooks) after reading about it in a post of 31 January 2009 on the Tolkien Library site.

Names can't be copyrighted, but "Tolkien" is trademarked.

Our guess would be that this is a copy of the 2nd printing of the Canadian edition. Its price was $34.95 (thanks for including an image of the front flap!). But we don't have a copy of this to verify.
