Well, you now have an answer to this question. Beowulf will be the next (last?) deluxe edition.

Really excited to hear that Beowulf will finally be seeing the light of day. Great news.

EP have released a leather-bound 'Fall of Arthur'. Might be of interest to some. I don't personally collect American books, but I do have the EP releases (so I have ordered a copy). Note that international buyers need to ring them up to order (but the person took my order was very polite and helpful, and international postage was only $8 on top of the US price).

Stu, I went to the website to order this; was the order you placed a pre-order? (It says it's not published until May 2014.) I just wanted to double check it hadn't been (quickly) reprinted or something; as I got the impression, when I first read your post, that it was available (i.e. had been published) at that time.

No, mine wasn't a pre-order as such, although I did order within the first day or two of it being listed as "available now" back in November last year, and it did then take a good few weeks to arrive. I think they must now have run out of their initial print run and be awaiting the reprint.

EP generally don't have any publication history in their books, so although there can be minor differences between print runs, there is generally nothing printed inside to indicate which print run a book belongs to. I just retained the packaging and order slip to show mine was from the first batch (for what it is worth).

I posted another thread on here with some pictures of the book when I received it (http://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/n ... php?topic_id=2187&forum=9).

Please just read the list of goods that "Tolkien" trademark could be aply.

There is no problem in repeating the names of books. Example: http://www.amazon.com/J-R-R-Tolkien-B ... s=j.r.r.tOLKIEN+BIOGRAPHY

But you have to agree that "J.R.R.Tolkien's Library" is not the same as "The Tolkien Library". Even if was the case, this is not a issue of trademark.

There is already a publication like this: http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/1 ... ien-get-new-cover-art.php

Why do you think that I edited the first post?


Do I agree that two similar (but different names) are different? Yes, I can distinguish the differences (obviously).

However, as a lawyer, you do presumably understand that Trademark law is essentially about "confusion", so two things don't have to be identical for one of them to be infringing, there just has to be a likelihood of confusion among the public. There are many, many examples of trademark complaints where the wording or trade dress were significantly different but still considered similar enough to be a violation. I believe there is a significant difference between Penguin's "books that inspired Tolkien" and your "JRR Tolkien's Library", but I might well be wrong.

(As an aside, you do understand that your list of Trademarks that you keep insisting I look at is just those Trademarks registered in the UK and that there almost certainly will be others registered in other territories --or at least it would be very unusual if there weren't).

Look, it may be that you can do what you want to do and the titling isn't an issue at all. Just take the comments I have made and either take them onboard as being alternative opinions (to yours) that might be worth investigating or just ignore them, FFS.

I'm sure that others will chip in with public domain works to add to your list if they see fit.

It is a difficult problem, and I think the only real solution is "buyer beware". The problem with making the buying public aware of how to spot the obvious fakes is that the fakes will just improve over time to compensate for the increased awareness.

Probably the only thing that can be done is to educate buyers to be aware that there are a lot of fakes out there and really push "verifiable provenance" as being an important thing to consider. And if the provenance story relates to cleaning out the late attic of one of Tolkien's unspecified late friends/cleaners/home help, run a mile...
