Greetings!

I understand that a Deluxe Slipcase Edition of Beren and Luthien has been published as well, along with the regular edition.

I am thinking about acquiring one, but I am not quite sure whether reissues are already printed for the book. Has anyone received a copy of the second impression of Beren and Luthien Deluxe Slipcase Edition?

No idea. I'd be surprised if they didn't print a fairly large first print for this title. CoH was 10,000 copies from memory. Not sure if they have even sold those through yet.

These books will never be worth anything, so I'd maybe not worry to much if you get a second impression (which I think is unlikely). Buy it if you like it to stick on the shelf and have it look nice (in which case 1st and 2nd would probably be the same, unless 2nd was Chinese, I guess). You can pick this title up pretty cheaply, so probably worth a punt and see what you get.

Always eager to lend a helping hand to a fellow novice!

Thank you very much for your input!

I figured obtaining a Deluxe Slipcase version would be in a way to celebrate my momentous occasion of jumpstarting an actual Tolkien collection in 2017.

This would be one of my first purchases of an actual first edition first impression book that is "currently available" in the market (instead of buying dusty pricey "old" first edition copies!).

Sorry but Stu is not a 'fellow novice', he is a very experienced collector.

My God that’s not what I meant! I was referring to myself when I said a word novice! Only the fellow part applies to Mr. Stu since we are all in the same community!

I apologize if that came out differently than originally intended!

Btw, I saw your collection on Reddit. Quite stunning.
