Think some of them may have been issued with a set of Royal Mail Tolkien Centenary Stamps (£6) also. Have seen a few listed with the stamps included.


Any idea if it was just the book and the stamps or was there some other packaging also tying the two items together (metaphorically not physically)? I'm wondering if it was a HarperCollins thing or something specific to one of the UK book retailers of the era (e.g. WH Smiths).

There was a previous thread on these. Not a huge amount of information, unfortunately.

Poorly described auctions are usually the best ones. Sometimes an element of risk, mind!

No you are right - 1 or 2 a year on ebay i reckon
Ironically one came up recentl- sold for £56
No idea re numbers but remains one of the nicer versions i think


Yep, I bought that one Slight damage to one of the box corners, which I should be able to tidy up, but otherwise a decent copy. I've only seen it come up a handful of times and the asking price previously has always been more than I have been prepared to pay, so I was glad to get it this time around.

Has anyone got an inkling of the size of the print run for the HarperCollins 1992 India Paper LoTR. Doesn't seem to show up terribly often...?
