Does the Voyager imprint ever produce any editions of any author in hardback? This is interesting, if a little unusual sounding. Do we think this is going to be in the current "deluxe" style except in black (a colour not used yet)? No mention of paper. Can't be regular paper surely.

Not sure I'd read too much into the imprint. Could just be an error. My gut feel is it would just be the current deluxe style of paper covered boards, but basically the same books and paper as the current version. I'd like to be wrong on that, of course.

Can't remember what detail we had on this.

The Complete History Of Middle-earth [Deluxe Boxed Set Edition]

"This special collector's edition features all 12 parts of the series bound in three volumes. Each book includes a silk ribbon marker and is quarter-bound in black, with grey boards stamped in gold foil, and the set is presented in a matching black slipcase. J.R.R. Tolkien is famous the world over for his unique literary creation, exemplified in The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion. What is less well known, however, is that he also produced a vast amount of further material that greatly expands upon the mythology and numerous stories of Middle-earth, and which gives added life to the thousand-year war between the Elves and the evil spirit Morgoth, and his terrifying lieutenant, Sauron ...."

Yes, I saw that one. I don't have the A&U/HC hybrid edition (so I was very tempted to buy that copy), but like you, the missing piece of jacket would have irked me.

Just surprises me that none of the three variants seem to show up with any degree of regularity.


I bit.

Yes, the jacket damage is annoying but, as you say, these so rarely turn up on eBay that I thought I'd be waiting a very long time for a perfect copy.



Yeah. If I hadn't already had one of the other variants, I'd have certainly put in a bid. I've seen them now and then, just mostly in hindsight on the sold searches, rather than before hand when I could actually bid.

I was thinking the following -

*1972/1992 Hybrid (http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=62160)
*1992 Edition (http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=62250)
*1995 Edition (http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=62300)

edit: Trotter put in links for tolkienbooks.net

but

from tolkienbooks.net

"Two similar impressions issued?

The 3rd and 4th Impressions may be reprints of the 1992 Edition - the edition year may have been changed in error."

At least 25, if that can be believed. Seems like an awful lot, but maybe they are very short runs.

The 2004 Deluxe was up to at least 8 or 9 as of a couple of years ago, so I guess it is plausible.
