facsimile covers

I received a set of the Lord of the Rings in French for Christmas. it's the Gallimard Collection 1,000 Soleils imprint. 2 of the books have very nice dustjackets, but the first book only has a picture taped to the front of the book.(!) Is it possible to get a facsimile dust jacket ? Where could I start to find one? Thank you, and Happy New Year to all!

The folks over at could print you one if you can get them a high resolution scan of the dust jacket you need and accurate measurements.

A member here would have to have a high res scan to provide though. Hopefully one does. Good luck!

Hello there !

I should be able to provide you with an HD photo of the missing cover as well as the dimensions of it, if you're not in too much of a rush.

In the meantime, if you want more details about the edition => https://lesarchivesdetolkien.wordpress ... eigneur-des-anneaux-1980/

Hi Bergelmir,

would you have any time now to make the scans of the cover? I can certainly wait.
Thanks again,

Unfortunately, I don't have a scanner but I can provide you with an HD photo of each one if that suits you

Edit : I'm still going to ask on one of my French collectors groups if someone have the edition AND a scanner, that would be even better :)

Thank you ! I would be perfectly happy with just the HD photo; I can get the dimensions from the others two dust jackets. I only need the Fellowship.

Hi, Painter !
Sorry for the delay in response, I haven't forgotten you, but it's been snowing for several days at my house and the photos in artificial light are really not ideal to respect the color of the jacket...
I'll come back to you as soon as the sun shines again

Believe me, Bergelmir, I understand! I live in northern New York state, and presently have about 2 feet of snow surrounding my house! Take your time!
best, Painter
