Here is the (early link) for the forthcoming Alan Lee illustrated one-volume 60th Anniversary edition as well.

From the description provided:
This new edition is housed in a special transparent slipcase and includes a brand new setting that features the definitive 50th anniversary text, which together with Alan’s beautiful paintings provides the reader with the ultimate edition with which to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the work’s first publication.




"Special Transparent Slipcase". Ugh. Sounds astonishingly like cheap and nasty plastic packaging...

I'm definitely going to start skipping some of these "meaningless milestone" releases, I think (or at least will wait and see, rather than preorder).

It is always the Terms of Use that mean I can't/won't contribute to these kinds of things. For example, there are a number of issues that I have with the following paragraph when I know nothing about the organisation that I am "doing business" with.

I have started working on Tolkienbooks.net again and am wondering if anyone has a copy of this edition:

http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=71510

It appears to be a copy of the 3rd impression of the hardback edition bound as a paperback - it has the hardback ISBN (0261103539) on the verso of the title page and the plates are spread out through the book instead of all together in the middle.

Does anyone have one of these, maybe as a 2nd or 4th impression.


I have the 3rd impression. Different ISBN on verso of title than on back cover, plus plates spread out (as you describe). The pages have been cut down, but not very accurately, so the text is not completely horizontal through to about page 10.

High prices are probably an effect of the awful Hobbit movies.

Prompted by issue 33 of The Tolkien Collector, I got down my 2012 copy of The Father Christmas Letters, and noted that it says, "This paperback edition // 2012." The only problem is that it says this in a hardback edition ...

Yeah, I noticed this when it came out. Have checked every copy I have seen in the stores, and they all seem to have this mistake.
