J.R.R. Tolkien 1991 Dutch Version Hardback Book, The complete trilogy including the Appendages. "If there is one book in your life that you can not miss and that is this wonderful adventure novel. Yes, you have to go through almost 1242 pages". In de Ban van de Ring. Translated by Max Schuchart. 34th printing [Utrecht:] Het Spectrum, 1991. 21.5 x 13.5, 1242 pp., Hardback Book. Bound in claret cloth over boards with white headbands and a claret ribbon marker. On the front, the spine and the back is a white panel with Tolkien's name, the overall title and the title of the three parts in black, and Tolkien's monogram in claret. This is the one-volume de deluxe-edition, especially issued for the centenary. The map of Middle-earth, redrawn by Cees Kelfkens is printed on p. [2-3] and the map of A part of the Shire is on p. [8]. On p. 9-13 is Tolkien's foreword from the 1966 edition. P 14-15 gives a note by the translator. The prologue starts on p. 17. Moria Gate is on p. 380 and the runes on Balin's Tomb on p. 396. On p. 904 is Kelfkens redrawn map of a part of Rohan, Gondor and Mordor. The synopsis at the beginning of part 2 and 3 are left out. The matter is identical to the three-volume paperback from 1989 (A7a-c) and has the same errors. There were no appendices, but they were added in a later edition, the 38th printing (1994). Reprinted in 1992 as 35th printing. Thanks for looking.
