Nice haul. I hadn’t realised that LotR set was a Waterstones one? I didn’t get mine from there all those years ago.

Haven't seen much interesting since the beginning of summer (or too expensive) but I finally found 2 French editions before going on vacation :
- paperback edition 1986
- hardcover edition 1992, last printing 2013 (the cover changes color only for this printing, brown => red)

To my knowledge, only the French version of this centenary edition has a red cover. Am I right ?

Got this interesting interview with Tolkien by Daphne Castell, has this been published elsewhere or is it only in this paperback?

After many long years of searching, I have finally been able to piece together a set of 1st Ed 1st Print HMCO Lord of the Rings in the original wrappers! The FOTR and TT are especially hard to come by.

This has been one of my long term goals as a collector to add to my library, so thrilled to have them. I will cherish them for many years to come!

Congrats. Nice looking set. Probably more difficult to put together a 1st US Set than a 1st UK considering there were only 1000 US TT's Printed.
