I am trying to get all of these editions with all the different RRP's on the Spine, starting with this edition http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details2.php?id=437 and ending with this edition http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details2.php?id=444

Can you have a look at any copies that you have to see if I am missing any that have a UK price on the spine, looking at tolkienbooks.net I think I am at least missing some from 1981 and 1982 if the price is shown on the spine.

  • 30s net
  • £1.75 (35s net)
  • £1.75 = 35s net (different setting of price from AndyBirdUK pictures below)
  • £1.75 net
  • £1.95 net
  • £2.10 net
  • £2.95 net
  • £3.95 net

I have a 12th impression/1973 (£2.10 net) and a 1982 Unwin Paperback fourth impression (no price on spine, £5.50 on rear panel).

It switched from GA&U to Unwin in 1978 and says it was reprinted 1979, 1982 (mine). It was actually reprinted in 1979 twice, thus my copy looks like a third impression but is actually a fourth.

I think that the entry on http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details2.php?id=444 looks to be incorrect as the prices are on the back cover and not the spine.

- Price of £4.95 or £5.50 on spine
- Unwin Paperbacks imprint on spine
- Unwin Paperbacks logo on upper cover

It is a happy and very rare day indeed when an error turns up in Tolkienbooks.net!

Oops, my bad. Fixed now.

Someone emailed me about another oops on one of the Silmarillion pages at the weekend, so I guess I'm not infallible

AndyBirdUK I notice that the £4.95 and £5.50 editions are different sizes, could you give the dimensions of both please?

Another copy for me to look out for, the £5.50 priced book
