Hello. This is my first post on this forum though i have been looking on here for a few weeks.


I have come across a tolkien book im interested in buying, however the ISBN on the copyright page is different to the ISBN on the dustjacket.

Is that normal for books to have two different ISBNs or are they meant to be the same.

If they are meant to be the same does that mean the seller is trying to pass off the book as a first edition, first impression, when really only the DJ is or vice versa?


Thank you.

Could you provide more detail? What book is it? (provide a link if you can); what are the two ISBN's?

The book is Morgoth's Ring.

ISBN on Copyright Page states 0002241951 whereas ISBN on Barcode of Rear Cover of Dustjacket states 0261103040. First UK Edition, First Impression 1993.

Hope that helps.

Also what price should i expect to find a first edition, first impression copy of Morgoth's Ring in near fine/fine condition?

From what i have read the last three books of HoME are harder to come by and therefore more expensive, the most expensive being the final book in the series - The Peoples of Middle-Earth. Still i dont want to pay more than i have to!

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, in this title, the jacket does carry the incorrect ISBN. The copyright page is as below. The 2nd impression employed a line sequence (e.g. 23456789) --so if you see this: watch out, it's probably a 2nd impression (-don't have an image of this, sorry).

I gave an overview of prices recently in another thread.

UK HOME Hardback Reissues

Hope this helps.

If Deagol's site was still available you would have been able to verify this yourself
