Correct, each volume contains book/index, book/index, etc. You still need the separate volume if a combined index is desired.

The three volumes set is just the 12 volumes squished together without alteration.

I'm not sure I'd classify this as "good". Laminated (not mentioned in listing) AND knackered.

Colour on the frontis of the first book in each volume, B/W on the subsequent books in each volume, I believe.

I think Stu will be able to answer this one better than I can... for what it's worth: Silmarillion had at least a second print but I would make a guess that Arthur, UT and Kullervo still have not.



Not necessarily sure I can. I only usually know that one of them has been reprinted because I hear people complaining about getting a Chinese print.

These are the ones I know for sure have been reprinted:

The Hobbit
The Lord of The Rings
The Silmarillion
Tales from The Perilous Realm
The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun
Unfinished Tales

That's not to say any of the others haven't been reprinted, but if they have, I haven't heard as yet. The print run of CoH was giant, which is why those are still available.

I'd just go with whatever you can get cheapest, which is likely to be the three hardback volumes and the paperback version of the Index. As the others have said, the text hasn't changed (or at least I have seen this question asked in a couple of places and the answer has always come back that it remains unchanged).
