Good detective work, Jeremy. I do like the fact that this site is frequented by people that are quite happy to put the effort into solving life's (un)important little questions :)

I suspect that the UT/BoLT1/BoLT2/Atlas/Guide to Middle-Earth probably only exist with the defective rune as these haven't been reprinted as yet (and the Guide won't be reprinted). If they do reprint (and they probably will, I suspect), hopefully it will be with the correction.

The nice thing about these books is that they are pretty cheap. Other than the Atlas which I had to pay a little more for, I only paid an average of about $50 a book, and I got them in two batches, so the postage was not as bad as buying individual books (which probably wouldn't be worth it outside of the US).

I just had a look at all my books (ut, sil, bolt1, bolt2, hob, fr, tt, rotk and atlas) and they all have the incorrect fourth rune on the second line. It will be interesting if they fix this if/when they reprint the ones that aren't in the "set of 5". I hope so as it will define a first and second state of those books, which adds a bit of interest, if nothing else.

Oh, yes and I do have the US 1/1s of HoME, but then you can't have enough variants of that...

The Only US editions I have are Easton Press. I didn't think I would like them, but turns out I do. I just picked up Fonstad's Atlas of Middle-Earth, and it is a really nice edition.

Unfortunately, I don't have spare copies, but the 1987 set were the first LOTR hardbacks that I acquired (back when they came out). They might not have any significant monetary value, but this will always be my favourite set. The DJ artwork works better than any since.
