Someone should really try and write a longish article on the WHOLE genesis of this edition, the ordering process etc. :)



I concur. I honestly have no idea what the hype about this book is, and I can't find any information anywhere about what makes it special (other than that it caters to people who can't afford a true first edition).

Thanks for correcting me :) Indeed I've been referring to the impression/printing all along.

Oh I didn't realize that. I guess I'm wondering how to determine if a book is a first edition or not based solely on the ISBN. The only reason I care is because of the paper and binding, which from what I've read, are better in the first editions.

Apologies for asking so many questions... but did the other deluxe editions in this series (LOTR, Hobbit, Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, etc.) also have different ISBNs between their first editions and later ones?

Any news on the deluxe "Kullervo" book yet? I'm waiting to see the foil motif
