Did anyone ever get confirmation of the print run for the Deluxe UT?

But my question came again. are there others prints of the first edition UK?


I have definitely seen a 3rd impression in Australia, but it was a long time ago. So far as I remember it was a regular printed-in-the-UK copy. I think the asian printing for our market was only done for the 1st impression (probably to assist with the worldwide simultaneous release).

[Edit: According to tolkienbooks.net, there are at least 12 impressions.]

Interesting, but I prefer collect book published in UK.


But the book that you show the picture of appears to be a CAD Dollar denominated version, printed in the USA? - I'm confused as to why you collect that as clearly it isn't of UK origin? I'd be very surprised if the 2nd impression sold in the UK was printed in the USA (happy to be proven wrong!).

The Au/NZ versions are published by HarperCollins (UK), they just printed them in different places to save on distribution costs (and possibly time) - which means there are minor variations as the printers would have had slightly different materials available to them. Same situation as the Canadian edition that you appear to have.

Eduardo, you may wish to collect the Australia/NZ (HarperCollins) 1st Print. It is distinguishable from the UK 1st due to slightly different material for the boards and the printer is listed as "Printing Express, Hong Kong". Otherwise it looks like the UK 1st.

Two copies of the HoME-matching unfinished tales is just greedy! :) Very impressive collection.
