Here is a picture of my collection, looking fantastic, on account of appearing to have arrived in one piece...

As the removalists still have about 15% of my stuff (and I will get it at some random point in the future), I was relieved that all of the books came through in the first batch.

Of all the little Tolkien sayings that have become popular because of the movies, the one I hate the most is "Not all those who wander are lost".

It had specific relevance in the book, but now it appears on all kinds of crap as if it is some piece of important philosophy.

Which it isn't - It is just a glib statement when you stick it on a pendant or a T-shirt.

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).
