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!

Perhaps this could help. Here is some book that is not listed there:

The Silmarillion: HarperCollins, 2013 Edition, 2013. ISBN:9780007523221

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

The Children of Húrin. HarperCollins, Paperback, 2009 (2 April), ISBN:9780007309368


Updates to other sections coming soon, starting with LotR.


Just a quick question on this one:

http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=27100

Is this a stock photo?

The edition I have (matching this ISBN) has a film cover and is a 1st Printing (HarperCollins Childrens Books). It has the sticker on it also. I ordered it a day or two after it was released. The stock photo on Amazon I think is incorrect. I have not seen a John Howe cover.

Here is what mine looks like:

eBay Item #221360072114

Have I got this wrong or am I confused?


No it is not a stock photo! There are two HarperCollins Children's Books editions - 2012 and 2013. 2012 has the film cover and 2013 has the John Howe Smaug. I managed to miss the 2012 version when it came out and didn't realized until I read Tolkien Collector No.33. [Incidentally, TC33 has a typo on the year - it should read 2012 not 2011.]

I now have copies of the 2012 and 2013 editions in hand.
