    still a long way ...

    I do own all now and 5 aren't firsts.
    If i find a dedicated first of
    • LOTR
    • Simarillon
    • Hurin
    • Unfinished Tales
    • Perilous realm
    by chance or somebody reads that and has one to share i will be happy to upgrade, but im uncertain that i will actively search for them.
    Two of them would be available, signed (AL) , for 350 each , but i am not there yet to pay that ;D

    I got remarqued/signed Arthur and signed AL Gondolin.

    I would like Simarillion 1st but I already tried for that years ago so not worried about it. And still haven't decided to try and track down an LOTR.

    Hell, if I can find a HC Hurin 1st print for under $100- I'll just send you this HM 1st.

    Here's another curious thing (well, 2, actually..):

    1- I don't think that there actually ARE US HM deluxe editions for all of these books.. Can anyone find the last few deluxe titles that are anything other than UK Harper Collins'..?

    2- It also appears- at least re: the trade editions of these- that there are sizing differences between the UK & US.. I had thought that they were virtually identical. They typically had been. Which is why I've always just gotten (the easier to get) US HM editions.

    Can anyone confirm any of the above?

    I cannot confirm personally, however Pieter Collier of The Tolkien Library should be able to furnish me with the details. I will find out for you.

    A couple of Hobbits to add to his ever expanding Tolkien collection. The first is a second edition, 12th Impression but signed. and the second is a first edition, Rebound by the renowned London bookbinders, Sangorsky and Sutcliffe. They have done an incredible job on this book, even managing to retain the original map paste downs, both front and back.

    Was just able to secure a deluxe Unfinished Tales 1st print for $69, so feeling pretty good. Still on the lookout for deluxe 1sts of Beren and Hurin.

    Against my better judgement I've decided to start collecting the HarperCollins deluxe slipcased editions, starting with whatever printings I can find. I love the look of them, and the stories are just wonderful.

    I don't feel the need to have first printings ...

    I too don't care about fine print, but keep in mind that, in the case of Tales From The Perilous Realm, the foil stamping on the book itself is 3 colors (gold, red, silver) only on early printings (and perhaps only the first printing; I don't own it and am not sure) but only 1 color (gold) on later printings. If I ever get around to hunting this down, I would definitely want the 3-color one.

    Thanks for the tip! I would also prefer the three-colour variant, if I can get it.

    So far, so good. These are all recent printings, probably never to appreciate in value beyond what I paid for them. Nice editions though.

    Nice. Where did you get them? And of course, you must open them and report what you have! I'm most interested in that Beren
