A link to the Tolkien Library article:
http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/8 ... rin-Paperback-Box-Set.php
It also has the December 2008 publication date.

I would assume that HarperCollins are the source of the dates on both Amazon and Tolkien.co.uk.

We have been noting anomalies in the dates on Amazon in this forum for years, so I am no longer surprised when they don't tie in with what is actually printed inside the books.

The same date appears on Amazon. No idea of the significance.

Has anybody bought a copy in the last 6 months?

The "Look Inside" preview is a 12th impression and includes The Fall of Arthur in the other books section so must be fairly recent. My suspicion is that the preview file was updated in August 2013, but that is little more than a guess.

My first impression copy is dated 2008, as is my 4th impression copy.

In my experience, I find that the dates given on Amazon need to be taken with a pinch of salt. Sometimes the date given is the date of a reprint rather than the first issue.

I seem to recall that this edition was initially only available in a boxed set with The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales. The Amazon entry dates this as December 2008, but again, how reliable that is I don't know. I bought my set in May 2009, but it had been available for some time before then.
