    Wow, Becca. Sorry I somehow missed this reply from 2 months ago!

    I got them from a variety of sources, but mostly bookdepository and ABE. I don't usually buy from bookdepository much because their packaging SUCKS, but these volumes arrived with no damage, luckily. Prices were between $50-80 with free shipping. Likely these are the most recent printings, so nothing very collectible; just nice books to own and read.

    Incidentally, I now have the whole set except Fall of Arthur, and have opened and enjoyed them. Man, they are nice editions! I'll go through them and list the printings I have in a future post.

    (What is it with Fall of Arthur? The only copies I've seen are astronomically priced. Was there only one printing done?)

    I'm interested to see what printing Beren might be?? As far as Arthur, I bought a remarqued/signed copy which was pricey so not sure but it's possible it's only been in one printing.

    Becca, my copy of Beren and Lúthien is a third printing.

    My other copies are:

    The Hobbit: unspecified
    Lord of the Rings: 11th
    The Silmarillion: 6th
    Unfinished Tales: 5th
    The Children of Húrin: 6th
    Perilous Realm: 3rd
    Sigurd and Gudrún: 3rd
    Beowulf: 1st
    The Story of Kullervo: 1st
    Beren and Lúthien: 3rd
    The Fall of Gondolin: 1st

    I know I said I didn't care about printings, but I am quite pleased to have a first printing of Beowulf. And of Gondolin, too - I'm almost tempted to try to get first printings of the other two Great Tales to complete the set. But I think I'll stick with what I have.

    I don't really have any collectible Tolkien, as such, but I do have some nice trade copies - a hardcover set of the U.K. Editions of The History of Middle Earth, for example, although again, not all first printings.

    That's awesome about Beowulf and Kullervo. You got a deal! I'm still looking for Beren and Children 1sts, so I will keep on that. And I never got LOTR in this edition so if I find a nicely priced one, I might get that too.

    I have the newer title releases (from Arthur onward) of UK trade books in 1st prints and signed by Alan Lee. Other than that I have some newer releases of The Hobbit and UK firsts of Farmer Giles and The Simarillion.

    Wow, signed first printings? That's fantastic. You must be so pleased! I have Harpercollins hardcovers of all the recent publications, from Húrin onward, but none signed.

    Thanks to a certain member here, I was able to get a 1st print Beren!

    Now just need Children of Hurin 1st and then I guess I should try for LOTR in this edition. And that will complete my set. (There is a lovely Christopher Tolkien/Alan Lee signed copy, but it is super pricey! I must resist.)

    This has to be one of my favorite scenes in a movie (and a favorite movie too)!
