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.

Might we see photos of the title-page and the back of the title-page of the 2nd printing? These might offer a clue. Also, are there any extra marks or indentations on the lower (back) cover of the binding of the 2nd printing?

Tolkien Collector no. 33 has been posted to subscribers. We apologize once again for the long delay between issues: life, work, and contractual responsibilities have tended to get in the way.

Since The Tolkien Collector appears so infrequently, from no. 33 it will be offered only per issue rather than on subscription. Details may be found on our website. Existing subscriptions, however, will be honoured, and each current subscriber will find enclosed with no. 33 a coloured sheet indicating which number is the last issue for him or her.

Happy Tolkien's Birthday!

Swann Galleries, New York, will be offering for sale in their 23 January 2014 auction of 20th Century Illustration Lot 77, an unsigned drawing by Frank Frazetta of a hobbit and a warg, apparently a preliminary drawing for a plate in Frazetta's 1975 Lord of the Rings portfolio (house estimate $8,000-12,000); and Lot 148, a drawing by caricaturist David Levine, of Tolkien in the jaws of a dragon, presumably Smaug, made for Esquire magazine in 1966 (estimate $500-750).

This is definitely a library rebinding, similar in spirit to the original Houghton Mifflin binding but not the same. I've seen copies like it offered for sale from time to time.
