All books are printed in Hong Kong. Except the book Children of Hurin that was printed by LEGO. Tales from perilous realms and the legend of sigurd and gudrun, ans the others books was printed in great britain.


I believe that the first run of the CoH Deluxe was 10,000 copies, so it is likely that hasn't been reprinted.

I have these issues. There is no indication that they are reprints.


Based on spine shape and colour (which might be distorted by the photo), I'd certainly say that the Hobbit looks like a reprint. Who is listed as the printer? I think the last copy I saw here in Aus had a Chinese or Hong Kong printer listed (can't remember specifically), but it wasn't LEGO.

The spine looks quite flat on that silmarillion as well. The original print of the Sil has a fairly curved spine and a noticeable line which runs down the centre of said spine (seems like a join in the materials under the paper, and is present on all the copies that I have seen).

With the Hobbit Deluxe, the reprint can be identified as it is not printed by LEGO, sPA.

The paper on the boards is also a different texture and colour. The reprint is a bit brighter green and the texture is much less defined. Stands out a mile when you know what to look for.

That may also apply to the others (but I haven't personally seen the others).

I think there is some minimal positive value in leaving the sticker on - if for no other reason, in the unlikely event that someone starts forging her signature, this would be a good indicator of a real signed copy. More seriously, though, it is a valid "state" from the publisher, so I am sure that Findegil will mention it in the updated bibliography.


That's what I figured. It is a valid state and most people will pull the stickers off, so it may end up being the only rare state of the book. Not that it really matters, beyond feeling smug about leaving it on in 30 years time.

And Jemimia Catlin is only 26, so she most likely has a lot of years ahead of her to sign those copies that she hasn't signed already!
