I bought the 2013 'A' format Hobbit from Amazon.
They call it an "International Film tie-in edition".

I am working on adding these 3 volume LR paperback editions to TolkienBooks.net at the moment and can confirm that they do appear in both 'A' and 'B' format. The 2013 film tie-in Hobbit also appears in both formats.

I have not got a copy of the 2012 film tie-in Hobbit in the larger 'B' format yet and was wondering if HarperCollins had omitted this in favour of the 2-volume Hobbit, but now I have had another look at the ISBNs, I see that there are two on Amazon:

'B' Format
Paperback: 400 pages
Publisher: HarperCollins; Film tie-in edition edition (30 Aug 2012)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0007487282
ISBN-13: 978-0007487288
Product Dimensions: 20 x 12.8 x 2.8 cm

'A' Format
Paperback: 400 pages
Publisher: HarperCollins; International Film tie-in edition edition (30 Aug 2012)
Language: French
ISBN-10: 0007487290
ISBN-13: 978-0007487295
Product Dimensions: 17.6 x 11 x 3.2 cm

"Language: French" is a database error I think.

I received my copy of the "HarperCollins International Film tie-in edition" of The Hobbit (ISBN-13: 978-0007525508) and can't see what is "International" about it. It looks like a typical 'A' format paperback to me. Have added it at TolkienBooks.net.

Does anyone have the 2012 reprint of the 7 volume paperback edition of The Lord of the Rings? I would be interested to know which printing you have and roughly when you purchased it.

Also has anyone seen/have a copy of The Hobbit with this cover but in the larger 'B' trade format?

The Children of Húrin. HarperCollins, Complete & Unabridged 2007(10 December), ISBN:9780007275397


Does anybody have a copy of this? What is it?

Looking on Amazon, ABE, etc brings up a photo of the super deluxe edition. Just a database glitch maybe? The ISBN doesn't tie in with other books from 2007.

Also there is another paperback not on your site (an international film tie in edition):

ISBN: 0007525508

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Hobbit-J- ... r=8-1&keywords=0007525508

Cover is identical to ISBN: 0007525494, but it is a smaller format book.


I have been debating with myself whether to include this edition as (in theory) I only include British editions at TolkienBooks. I excluded it for that reason, but am leaning the other way now so have ordered a copy.

HarperCollins have put out a few editions for sale overseas over the years and I decided not to include them as they were not offered for sale in the UK - remember the third edition of The Road Goes Ever On for instance?

There have been some Aus/NZ only editions too. One has to draw the line somewhere!
