With all of these recent deluxe incarnations --if isn't stated as a first (or is in shrinkwrap) I, personally, assume it's a reprint; since all of them are into later impressions now.

I have these issues. There is no indication that they are reprints.

With the Hobbit Deluxe, the reprint can be identified as it is not printed by LEGO, sPA.

The paper on the boards is also a different texture and colour. The reprint is a bit brighter green and the texture is much less defined. Stands out a mile when you know what to look for.

That may also apply to the others (but I haven't personally seen the others).

Based on spine shape and colour (which might be distorted by the photo), I'd certainly say that the Hobbit looks like a reprint. Who is listed as the printer? I think the last copy I saw here in Aus had a Chinese or Hong Kong printer listed (can't remember specifically), but it wasn't LEGO.

The spine looks quite flat on that silmarillion as well. The original print of the Sil has a fairly curved spine and a noticeable line which runs down the centre of said spine (seems like a join in the materials under the paper, and is present on all the copies that I have seen).

All books are printed in Hong Kong. Except the book Children of Hurin that was printed by LEGO. Tales from perilous realms and the legend of sigurd and gudrun, ans the others books was printed in great britain.
