Deagol,

Great to see updates on the site again. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

Just a quick question on this one:

http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=27100

Is this a stock photo?

The edition I have (matching this ISBN) has a film cover and is a 1st Printing (Harpercollins Childrens Books). It has the sticker on it also. I ordered it a day or two after it was released. The stock photo on Amazon I think is incorrect. I have not seen a John Howe cover.

Here is what mine looks like:

eBay Item #221360072114

Have I got this wrong or am I confused?

Also there is another paperback not on your site (an international film tie in edition):

ISBN: 0007525508

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Hobbit-J- ... r=8-1&keywords=0007525508

Cover is identical to ISBN: 0007525494, but it is a smaller format book.

Thanks again for a fantastic site!

Perhaps this could help. Here is some book that is not listed there:

The Silmarillion: HarperCollins, 2013 Edition, 2013. ISBN:9780007523221

The Children of Húrin. HarperCollins, Complete & Unabridged 2007(10 December), ISBN:9780007275397

The Children of Húrin. HarperCollins, Paperback, 2009 (2 April), ISBN:9780007309368


Updates to other sections coming soon, starting with LotR.

No it is not a stock photo! There are two HarperCollins Children's Books editions - 2012 and 2013. 2012 has the film cover and 2013 has the John Howe Smaug. I managed to miss the 2012 version when it came out and didn't realized until I read Tolkien Collector No.33. [Incidentally, TC33 has a typo on the year - it should read 2012 not 2011.]

I now have copies of the 2012 and 2013 editions in hand.

I have been debating with myself whether to include this edition as (in theory) I only include British editions at TolkienBooks. I excluded it for that reason, but am leaning the other way now so have ordered a copy.

HarperCollins have put out a few editions for sale overseas over the years and I decided not to include them as they were not offered for sale in the UK - remember the third edition of The Road Goes Ever On for instance?

There have been some Aus/NZ only editions too. One has to draw the line somewhere!

Does anybody have a copy of this? What is it?

Looking on Amazon, ABE, etc brings up a photo of the super deluxe edition. Just a database glitch maybe? The ISBN doesn't tie in with other books from 2007.
