The Voyager books were very prominent in the shops from 2001 to maybe 2003, but faded away as stocks were exhausted - probably because they were not reprinted. There are still occasional copies (of the Tolkien titles) available if you hunt around. Minimal details of the four Tolkien titles in the series can be found at TolkienBooks.net, but you will find get a few extra details if you search using ISBNs at Amazon (or Google them).

Fellowship of the Ring
Two Towers
Return of the King
Silmarillion


Sorry about the lousy images - will get around to replacing them at some stage!

The same list of titles appears in all four books, even though they were published at different times, so I suspect that there were 36 books in the series.

It looks good.
Christopher was at Mythcon in 87.

I have a 15th Impression 1965.
The printers made a mess when they set up the type for the printing history on the Third Edition 1966:

What should have read as:

Fifteenth Impression 1965
Third Edition (Sixteenth Impression) 1966


was actually set down as:

Third Edition (Fifteenth Impression) 1966
Sixteenth Impression 1966


This error was never corrected.

The Third Edition includes four colour plates rather than one, and remained the same up to 1974 when they reset the text and added another colour plate.

Beren,

Do you have any news on the HarperCollins History of The Hobbit boxed edition? David Brawn mentioned it at the online launch party I think. If I remember correctly it will include The Hobbit in a new jacket design as well. Any idea when it will be published?

I really want to read John Rateliff's books, but would prefer to buy just the set, rather than pay for the separate books now, and then the set later.
