I received this enquiry thru my web site, and was unable to help this gentlemen. Here is his question,

"I kindly like to ask you about a book that I saw in the Bristol public library. Unfortunately nobody there could tell me the name of the book and I cannot go there and take a look on my own because I live in Switzerland. It is a kind of compilation of Art work of Tolkien editions (Lord of the rings and/or The Hobbit including covers of these books) from all over the world. I remember illustrations of the editions of Russia, Japan, Hungary, Czech Republic, the Netherlands, France, some Scandinavian countries etc. So it really showed a big variety of international illustrations of Tolkiens work. The format of the book was approximately around A 4 and a few centimeters thick. It was not an illustrated copy nor was it Art work by Tolkien himself (maybe it contains a few of his drawings though)."

Any help would be appreciated

David

Here was a lucky find from ebay last Sunday night.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/230825756161? ... _trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

A nice set of early 1st Editions in very nice condition. Price was ok, but in looking thru the photo's I saw something quite interesting. As you can see in the photo of the dustjacket on the 5th impression Fellowship. No impressions noted on the dj. Just received it yesterday, and it turned out to be a true 1st impression dustjacket. So that dj will fit nicely on one of my extra 1st Fellowships that lacked a dustjacket.

Hello Laurel,

I've run across a couple of dustjackets for the 1st impression that were about 1/4" shorter in height. One had been trimmed by a library to put in one of the old style dustjacket protectors. The other one was a 2nd or 3rd impression copy that had the "?nd/rd Impression" scraped off, leaving a thin area that you could really only see when held up to the light. Hopefully that is not what you are looking at. Other than those I have never heard of one being an odd or smaller size.
