This is the one I am talking about :

https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookD ... D0618401210%26sortby%3D17

The ISBNs of the giftset itself are 0618401210 and 9780618401215.

This is the book in the set:

It seems to be exclusive to that set. Does anyone know what the ISBN of the book itself is?

Thanks for reading!

I was reading the "Early American editions of The Hobbit" article on wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Early_American_editions_of_The_Hobbit) and was struck by this sentence regarding library editions:

Examples have been found with the maps as free leaves, rather than pasted down. Invariably these have been a library edition. Most of those seen have been bound in orange cloth. The front cover mimics the first edition dust jacket, silk-screened in black.


Do they mean that it is this cover: Open in new window


But in black and white? If so, does anyone have an image of it they could share?

I almost exclusively collect US (American) published works of Tolkien so my comments are in that context.

In general it seems like there is both less available in used bookshops and eBay and what is available is more expensive than it was maybe 5 years ago. It seems like alot of material was brought to market at the peak of the hype from the movies but now lots of books are in people's collections and not being sold as much they used to be.
