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.

@Stu: Not a problem. I do not only collect movie covers. I collected many hobbits over the years: http://hobbit.gololo.es/index.php (274 so far!!).



That's quite a collection of Hobbits! I like the idea of the multi-language collection a lot, and if I was actively collecting again, I definitely might take that approach as there is so much more variety.

Well that and collecting movie covers :) The 'Desolation of Smaug' is in the top five worst movies I have ever seen. And I don't mean because it has no real Tolkien content, I mean because it is just an utterly terrible example of the 'art' of film making. Only George Lucas could have made more of a mess. Looking forward to someone doing a three hour fan edit (of the Hobbit story) from the nine hours of crap that PJ will have randomly thrown at the screen by the time the third one comes out.

(Note to gololo - Nothing wrong with collecting those covers, really - I just felt the need to vent about the movie, having had the misfortune of seeing it last week. My expectations were low and it delivered in spades)
