Just come into my possession is an Easton Press set of The Hobbit and the LOTR all signed by Michael Hague with an original drawing, I think these books are amazing! I now have the chance to purchase a set (also Easton Press) of the lost tales 1&2 and Unfinished Tales, signed by Carol Heyer with an original sketch of my choosing along with an Easton Press edition of Guide to Middle Earth signed by Greg Hildebrandt. Any ideas, personal feelings advice, etc. from some of you more salted Tolkien collectors would be very much appreciated.
thanks all!

I definitely think that these editions are much enhanced by having original sketches and signatures from the illustrators - it is one of the few ways to make them unique and differentiated from other Easton Press copies (which are quite nicely made, but generally easily available.)

I'm glad that's what you think, because I feel the same way. It's funny to me that Easton Press doesn't give much, if any, printing information. I assume they want it like that though, which also makes it easier to get the chance to have a very nice book that can be signed or have an original sketch and not have to worry about if it's the 1st/1st.

Hi,

as we are on the Easton Press issue and you brought it up, is there really no way of telling, what printing/ impression one has?

Thx,
Tobi

Hi Tobi,

I am pretty sure the copyright page definitely calls out whether it was the "first edition" first published in 1984 or the "second edition" first published in 1999. I don't have copies in front of me right now to compare the two, seems like a good call for an article here on TCG. Anyone have copies of The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings and willing to help? Drop me an email or post here with what the copyright page says (or a scan/photo of the copyright page.) Thanks!
