Hi everyone,

I'm trying to find a copy of Unfinished Tales with the Ted Nasmith painting "The Blue Wizards Journeying East" on the cover. It was published by HarperCollins in 2010. (see it here: http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/9 ... ished-Tales-paperback.php


Normally I'm pretty adept at tracking down books, but this one shares an ISBN with another edition with a different cover, and that's all I can seem to find.

Any help you guys could provide would be most appreciated.

This is a problem that we all have with books having the same ISBN and sellers for example on eBay using stock photos.

The only way to get it is to look for pictures that sellers have taken of the book themselves and ignore any with stock photos.

I am having the same issue with finding a Cascade copy of The Hobbit.

Yes, and what a patience building exercise it is!

I have stopped collecting new paperback editions because of this issue.

Only now collect new UK hardback editions.

Hardbacks are my main focus as well. Especially the UK ones. I'm actually looking for this one on behalf of a dear friend.
