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.

I will ask for the print run on UT.


Ta. I'm guessing at 2,500 (purely for the fun of guessing and being - inevitably - wrong).

Perhaps the following books:

- Letters of J.R.R.Tolkien
- J.R.R.Tolkien Biography Humphrey Carpenter

But I was wondering if anyone here has more information or contact with publisher for more information.



Quite honestly, I think they should call it a day. It is a nice series, but the production quality of the later volumes is far below the quality of the earlier volumes (although to be fair the price has remained the same). If they released another volume and the slipcase sides continued the trend of shrinking, they would have to be zero size (which would be quite a trick).

I'd pay a bit more for something that sat between the absurdly expensive SD editions and the current not-quite-deluxe editions.

Would be good to know the print-run size for Unfinished Tales. I think we have it for all the other volumes.
