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.

I have started working on Tolkienbooks.net again and am wondering if anyone has a copy of this edition:

http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=71510

It appears to be a copy of the 3rd impression of the hardback edition bound as a paperback - it has the hardback ISBN (0261103539) on the verso of the title page and the plates are spread out through the book instead of all together in the middle.

Does anyone have one of these, maybe as a 2nd or 4th impression.
