My 11th 1972 is same as the 11th impression cover on TolkienBooks.

This was supposed to come out some time back but it finally looks like it will be published on 25 March: a translation of The Hobbit into Irish (Gaelic).

I am pre-ordering a copy. My Irish is a bit rusty but should just be about up to reading it.

It is not cheap (£34.95 GBP or $49.95 USD) but sounds like a good product (hardcover with the Tolkien colour illustrations).

I agree, Trotter, the number is a problem. I have the same issue with the first UK 3-volume paperback of LoTR (1974) where the 1st impressions were exported. In the UK I have seen dozens of copies of these but only one that was a 1st impression (an odd volume of RotK)

I have checked my copies and am pretty sure the Unfinished Tales is this one without dust-jacket

and the Silmarillion is

which matched the LotR

I joined about 4 years ago (for a year) to buy the goatskin Silmarillion (of which they still had a few left) and had put on special offer and the boxed set of" His Dark Materials" by Philip Pullman, both of which I specifically wanted. Nothing has really caught my eye since so I would only renew if there was something specific I wanted.

Their books are generally good quality and not over-priced compared with general hardbacks in the shops (though the limited editions can be expensive but the quality of them is something special).
