There are none listed in any of the pre-1992 A&U/Unwin Hyman/HarperCollins catalogues. I have diaries from 1992-1995, 1997 and 1999-Present.

There is a good colour reproduction of one of the signed maps on the back cover of Profiles in History Autoraph Catalog 39

I have put some pages together now, but I am still a little unsure about the post-1994 editions.

Booksellers descriptions are proving to be most unreliable!

The ebay copy appears to have blue on the upper cover, so I'm inclined to think that the spine is just faded.

When I compiled the page at tolkienbooks.net I was careful to be uncommital about which variants would be the earliest. I think that the clipping of the text on page 234 may well be down to something becoming misaligned during the printing process then being corrected again - so it may not be as simple as 1st state/2nd state. You would need to find a proof or advance reading copy to be sure what the true first state is. Has anybody ever seen one for UT?

The jacket is even more contentious. I am not at all convinced that this is a real variant. I think that it is quite possible that it may be just a result of the fading of the blue ink - even on the front flap.
