Whilst browsing through one of my favourite books today, "JRR Tolkien -Artist and Illustrator", I was moved to wonder what kind of print runs the first impressions of the 1995 HarperCollins Hardback and subsequent 2004 HarperCollins Hardback revised edition had? I don't have the 2004 edition, but they don't seem to be terribly common (or possibly people just don't want to sell them).

Hoping that Findegil might be able to answer this one?

Saw this book at a local bookstore yesterday, selling for 50 euros.

Is it worth that much?



No. These books are really quite common as they were printed in huge numbers. There are a couple of variants, and I think the "Clowes" printed edition is possibly less common than the "Billings" version.

I think I paid about 20 pounds for my "mint" Silmarillion 1/1 a few years back, but that had been in a box of GA&U books that had been sealed since the early 80s. I got a 1/1 UT in the same condition from the same box. Those books were better than most new books in a book shop, though, so I paid a premium.

Good point. I stand corrected, Sir.

Very similar item to the book that my Uncle found, listed on eBay.

The world is insane if a 1970s LoTR is worth that much, signature or otherwise.

I am sure that David Miller (www.tolkienbookshelf.com) will not mind me sharing this with everyone, but he has recently been producing two slipcases for the current UK deluxe editions, and you can inquire with him on his website as to cost and when they may be available for purchase.



How come one of them has a felt lining and the other doesn't?
