Got my copy of Fall of Arthur today .........through Amazon. But for local book-stores it's hard to get English books so this was the best option for me. The Deluxe edition will take some more days.

Do you mean: you physically got it today!? I thought it wasn't published until next week?

Yes, I'm holding it in my own hands

It is bound the same style than the 50th anniversary edition of the LotR, bound in Great Britain by Clays Ltd.

I think I know what to read next

EDIT: Resized pictures Trotter

New stuff is always good! Early new stuff is even better!

Yeh, early new stuff is good if you're the one that gets it early. But not so much if you're still waiting!

I'm interested in seeing whether - like the last two books - the AU/NZ 1st / 1st is different than the UK one (different boards and printers in both cases).

By "last two" --do you mean S&G & CoH? Was this the trade Hb or deluxe, or both? Without prior knowledge how would you tell them apart now? And by that, I mean, is the printer a AUS/NZ printer?

Yep, S&G and CoH, Trade editions. I'm not aware of any difference on the Deluxe Editions.

With regards to CoH, the UK 1st print was printed by L.E.G.O, SpA , but the Australian one was printed by Printing Express Limited, Hong Kong. The UK one has paper boards, and the AU/NZ one has some kind of impregnated cloth. The AU/NZ one has an unpriced DJ, which is otherwise identical to the UK one. I have attached some images.


I don't have the AU/NZ edition of S&G (as I always expected to pick it up for tuppence -- and I haven't come across it as yet). However, I inspected it in the shop when it came out and it had black boards, as opposed to the brown boards of the regular UK edition. I can't remember who printed the AU/NZ edition - I did take a couple of pictures on my phone at the time, but they are long gone, unfortunately. I do remember that the quality of the boards on the AU/NZ S&G seemed poorer than the UK edition.

Edit: I'm reliably informed that the AU Edition of S&G bears the text: "Printed and bound in Australia by Griffin Press".
