I saw that one. Is it even possible to determine which edition that came from?



It would probably be possible to narrow it down based on the typeface of the GA&U lettering on the spine and the alignment of the three colours in the artwork which varies from impression to impression.

Definitely isn't from any of the first edition printings - can say that much.

These are some earlier numbers (from checking my purchase records), for what it is worth:

Vol. I:
2007 US$ 527

Vol. II:
2007 E201

Vol. III:
2007 £129 (Shrinkwrapped), E150 (not shrinkwrapped)


Shoulda paid less as it turns out. Volume 1 was quite hard to come by back then, though :) I'd say the price trend is downwards in real terms, and probably fairly static in purely numeric terms.

Hi there,

I am new here. I have been a tolkien collector for over 20 years and have a wide collection of items. Sadly due to a change in personal circumstances, most of it is having to be re-homed.

I am keen to find good homes for the items, rather than just splash it all on ebay.

The first set of books to go is the History of Middle Earth deluxe sets from 2000 onwards. I have all three books in the slipcases and in great condition. I can email pictures if you want to see them.....if you are interested in the full set or even just one of them please email me direct. Otherwise they hit ebay at the end of the week. :(

Unfortunately I already have a set, but you should be able to get a fair price for them on eBay if no one on here pipes up. The first two are worth more than the third. For some reason the third volume seems quite common (I think they were possibly remaindered). Good luck.
