There is an illustrated German translation - published in 1978 I think.

Remy - Thanks for the info.

I have another question I would appreciate some assistance with:

Sometime in 1973-74 Allen & Unwin started to laminate the dustwrappers on the 3 volume hardback LotR to produce a harder wearing gloss finish.

FR - TT - RK

I am trying to find out when the lamination was introduced, so would appreciate hearing if anybody has some copies dating from 73-74. The lamination is easily spotted on the flaps of the jacket - sometimes it covers half of the flaps, sometimes just a few mm. It may have been introduced a little later for the Fellowship than for the other two volumes.

Remy - Thanks for the info, it is much appreciated.

A couple of questions if I may -

On the Bakshi 2nd Impression does it say 'Second Impression 1979', or 'Reprinted 1979'?

Similarly, on the Baynes 4th Impression does it have '4th Impression 1982', or 'Reprinted 1979, 19??, 1982'.

I am working on a LotR update at TolkienBooks.net but I am struggling with the 1978 Unwin Paperbacks Edition.

I have gathered some information, but it doesn't fit together very well - see below.

Does you have a copy? If so I would love to hear some details - year, impression number, cover price, etc.


Stated 1st Impression (Bakshi cover): £2.95*
Stated 1st Impression (Baynes cover): £5.50**
Stated 3rd Impression (1979): £4.95***
Stated 3rd Impression (1982): £5.50
From promotional leaflet (1978): £3.95^
From promotional leaflet (1980): £3.75^^
From promotional leaflet (1981): £4.95
From promotional leaflet (1982): £5.50

* Dated 1978 but issued in 1979. It seems odd that although issued in 1979, this film tie-in edition was cheaper than the first issue of 1978. Discounted to promote sales?

** The original [Bakshi?] wrappers appear to have been removed and replaced with Baynes illustrated wrappers bearing the 1982 price.

*** The price suggests that this was issued in 1981 rather than 1979. The copy seen was purchased in December 1981. It is unclear whether the original wrappers are in place.

^ Copies priced at £3.95 have not been seen.



^^ Copies priced at £3.75 have not been seen.
