I received mine a couple of days ago (pre order from Amazon).

It was marked as a 4th impression.

Mine arrivied a while back also (Nicely packed with each book individually covered with publisher printed paper covers).

Book looks great and delighted to have in collection but as to content - can't speak a word of Galician (or Spanish). Sorry!

The joys of being a completist collector (though the limit for the most part stops at foreign language translations of The Hobbit")

Though they ship outside USA, this is a restricted edition (publication rights etc).

I ordered (from Ireland) but had to use my USA forwarding address. They could not despatch outside USA.

Thanks again mboswi

The publisher has replied and they are happy to ship to Ireland.

Just had to pay direct via paypal (they emailed costs).

Looking forward to receiving the books!

BTW, if they don't sell overseas we can arrange something so I can buy it for you and send it.


Many thanks for the offer. Nice to know there is a backup option.

"I'd also love to get a copy or two! Let me know if they will ship abroad."

Will let you know when i get a reply from publisher.

Here is the online shop. You can use paypal. No idea if they ship abroad, but you can try. Take into account it is a short print run of only around 300 books.
If you want any further details feel free to ask

Many thanks. I have emailed them to see if they post abroad.

I am just startled by the obscene pricing charged by the secondary market sellers when it comes to the rebound work by Thornton's. I still believe that there is a huge difference between rebound books that have received some kind of endorsement from the original publisher vs. books rebound by [insert your name] without any blessing. Without any form of official recognition or a nod by HarperCollins, I don't see a single speck of difference between a book that has been rebound by Temple Bindery under the request of [insert your name] vs. a book that has been rebound by Temple Bindery under the request of Thornton Bookstore, completely regardless of the fact that the aforementioned bookstore is a century old and the rebound books come in "limited editions."

I just wanted to cover more on this because there is a high likelihood that another novice collector like me could pay obscene pricing demanded by the secondary market sellers to acquire rebound Thornton books, with misguided belief that these rebound works are on a equal footing with the works done by the Folio Society (which belong in the Pantheon of the published works on Tolkienbooks.net).



You are certainly entitled to your opinion and that is fine.

However I am not a novice collector and enjoyed adding both the Roverandom & Silmarillion Thornton’s editions to my collection. Every collector is different and all have their own likes and dislikes. The “footing” that one would ascribe to a book lies in the mind of each individual and varies from person to person. Just my two cents on the matter.

{Not trying to be disrespectful to your opinion - just giving my own}
