The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings deluxe, were bought in a quaint place called a Book Shop, both on the day of release, so are both 1st printings, before Amazon put paid to all that nonsense, bookshops.

This picture is from January 2007, The Silmarillion deluxe came out later in 2007, so you are right these were the only two deluxe editions, that you could buy at the time.

You can see pictures of my current library on the tolkienlibrary.com website, though this is a few years old.

Had not known that the 50th Anniversary Edition was removed from the spine of The Lord of the Rings deluxe, does anyone know in which impression this happened, if it did?

Tolkien.co.uk still shows images with the 50th Anniversary Edition on the spine.

That looks amazing. Do you have a pic of your current collection that you can share? :)

Also, I assume that's an early impression of the Harper Collins LOTR deluxe. If I'm not mistaken, later editions do not have that 50th Anniversary Edition text on the spine. Either way, this pic is an ode to the early days when the only deluxe books in the series were TH and LOTR

Happy days, my Tolkien collection used to fit in one bookcase in 2007

I am surprised how many copies of The Silmarillion I had then compared to other titles.

Thanks for sharing, Trotter.

I've known of this letter for some time now. Diana Glyer and I (thanks to the kindness of the Tolkien estate) were allowed to quote from this letter in our chapter in Jason Fisher's essay collection Tolkien and the Study of his Sources:

https://books.google.com/books?id=98VQ ... like%20a%20hobbit&f=false

It is always nice to see a little known letter of Tolkien's brought to the attention of others.

Much appreciated Stu! I've now seen (or been told of) a total of seven copies of these, all 2nds (and all from the UK)... maybe the 1sts went abroad?
