I'm terribly sorry to disturb you in this manner. I wonder if I could ask you a question? The exact publication dates of The Lord of the Rings centenary editions have always remained a mystery to me. Different resources state differently. The one-volume editions, which include a) “ordinary” edition and b) deluxe edition, were published earlier than the three-volume slipcased editions, i.e. c) “ordinary” edition and d) deluxe edition, as I understand it. For example, as for the date for the publication of the one-volume edition, some resources claim July 1991, whereas some others claim December 1991. I’m afraid that I’m completely confused. Do you happen to know these "dates"? I would be most obliged if you could help me clarify with them.

Best regards, Lawrence


I don't know the answer to this, so was wondering if anyone does?

I assume that Lawrence is referring to the HarperCollins editions, but if you know the HM dates as well, then that would also be useful.

For what it's worth there are entries for those one-volume editions in Hammond's 'A Descriptive Bibliography' (in fact they are the last entries of the LotR section)... pages 172-176.
