By "last two" --do you mean S&G & CoH? Was this the trade Hb or deluxe, or both? Without prior knowledge how would you tell them apart now? And by that, I mean, is the printer a AUS/NZ printer?

BH



Yep, S&G and CoH, Trade editions. I'm not aware of any difference on the Deluxe Editions.

With regards to CoH, the UK 1st print was printed by L.E.G.O, SpA , but the Australian one was printed by Printing Express Limited, Hong Kong. The UK one has paper boards, and the AU/NZ one has some kind of impregnated cloth. The AU/NZ one has an unpriced DJ, which is otherwise identical to the UK one. I have attached some images.


I don't have the AU/NZ edition of S&G (as I always expected to pick it up for tuppence -- and I haven't come across it as yet). However, I inspected it in the shop when it came out and it had black boards, as opposed to the brown boards of the regular UK edition. I can't remember who printed the AU/NZ edition - I did take a couple of pictures on my phone at the time, but they are long gone, unfortunately. I do remember that the quality of the boards on the AU/NZ S&G seemed poorer than the UK edition.

Edit: I'm reliably informed that the AU Edition of S&G bears the text: "Printed and bound in Australia by Griffin Press".

I'm interested in seeing whether - like the last two books - the AU/NZ 1st / 1st is different than the UK one (different boards and printers in both cases).

Yikes, some people must not have read the updated descriptions. Does that total include the 50 euro "bidder's registration" fees collected?


Yes, I think it does, you had to pay €50 to place bids, but that came off the winning price, so all the other idiots bidders also paid €50 for a book probably worth less than €50 as it is not a good copy of the edition. I would not be surprised if they did not get €500 or more from potential buyers registering.


The buyer would have a good case for a refund. The seller repeatedly misrepresented the item during the pre-sales process.

The Tolkien Estate owns the rights to anything he wrote, regardless of who possesses the letter.


I'm not sure how enforceable this would be, realistically. People publicly disclose the contents of letters written to them all the time (in legal disputes, for example), and they are not opening themselves up to legal proceedings by doing so. That said, the legal system favours the rich, so I have no doubt that the Tolkien Estate get their own way in most matters.
