The Children of Hurin - UK Deluxe Edition Signed By Christopher Tolkien & Alan Lee on Publishers Bookplate.
London: Harper Collins, 2007. Alan Lee. 1st Edition, Hobbits, Lord of the Rings, Hard Cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Children of Hurin by J.R.R. Tolkien, published April 2007 by Harper Collins. Signed by the editor and illustrator, Christopher Tolkien and Alan Lee, to special bookplate, featuring Lee's motif of the Helm of Hador, attached to the front free endpaper. "The Children of Hurin, UK De Luxe Edition The first standalone tale of Middle-earth since 1977, and the first complete version of one of J.R.R. Tolkien's 'Great Tales', with many exclusive features:" "Drawing together J.R.R. Tolkiens original manuscripts, using many sources spaced out over decades, Christopher Tolkien has constructed a narrative without any editorial invention." "Includes a brand new red and black Map of Beleriand specially drawn by Christopher Tolkien, which appears as a fold-out sheet." "Contains eight colour paintings and twenty-five pencil sketches, specially commissioned from award-winning artist, Alan Lee." "Features an exclusive colour frontispiece painting by Alan Lee." "Includes a specially written introduction and appendix on the history and writing of the tale by Christopher Tolkien." "Quarter-bound in blue with grey boards, stamped in gold foil with a unique motif of the Helm of Hador created by Alan Lee, and housed in a matching custom-built slipcase." "Printed on superior quality paper and including a silk ribbon marker." "This edition available for a limited time only." With Houghton Mifflin wishing to reach out and do something special for the loyal Tolkien fans, along with Christopher Tolkien's reluctance to grant public appearances, they conceived the idea for a signed bookplate, which Christopher Tolkien and Alan Lee both agreed to. It seems approximately 900 bookplates were signed, with less than 500 for distribution in the US, and 250 for the UK, with the remainder held for other promotions. I know of three that were given away as prizes on the Tolkien Library web site, during the "Children of Hurin" Release Party. A very hard to find edition, with the signed bookplate. Don't expect to see many of these for sale, as most will end up in private collections. This Deluxe Edition is matched in style and design to the 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of 'The Lord of the Rings', and The Deluxe Hobbit that were concurrently issued in 2004. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions.. Signed by Illustrator & Editor. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. As New/No Jacket, as Issued. Illus. by Alan Lee. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Item #1311

London: Allen & Unwin, 1969. J.R.R. Tolkien. First Thus. Original Cloth. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Lord of the Rings, De Luxe Edition, by George Allen & Unwin. This is the 1st impression of the one volume De Luxe Edition of the Lord of the Rings, published by Allen & Unwin in 1969. A Very Good Plus example of a highly collectable book. The only minor fault is a bit of rubbing to the gilt in the upper corner of the top compartment on the spine, and the black buckram cloth is also very lightly faded on the spine, due to exposure to light. The slipcase shows some minor rubbing to the edges, but has protected the book very well for almost 50 years. This edition is printed on India Paper, making the full 3 volumes bound into a single volume, only 1 inch thick. The black buckram cloth has the Tolkien design depicting the Numenorean throne with 'Elendil' in tengwar, stamped on upper cover in gilt, silver and green. Mottled black and grey wove endpapers, all edges trimmed and speckled light green. Housed in the original publishers slipcase, only the 1st & 2nd impressions were issued with the slipcase.

The dustjackets are all in Very Good Plus condition, with only The Fellowship being price clipped. The Return of the King has a closed tear to the lower rear panel and a closed tear to the rear upper spine fold area, both neatly repaired with conservation tap, with minor chips and loss to the tips of the spine and fold areas. The three dustjackets are very bright, with minor chips and loss mainly to the ends of the spine, along with occasional black marks from an old style dustjacket protector. The protector has also left some tape ghosts to the endpapers, and some lines to the dustjackets, should be apparent in the photos provided. The Fellowship has some tape to the inside, which has darkened the upper inch of the spine a bit, but still has helped stop and further loss to the spine. This set is very scarce, with the variant Slate Blue/Grey Binding on the Fellowship of the Ring and the Two Towers, the only impressions that have this variant binding from the publisher. All three books have a previous owners bookplate (same) on the front free pastedown, mainly hidden by the dustjacket flap, no other writing noted. A slight musty smell to the books, hopefully airing them out a bit will help. The Return of the King, is a 1st impression, and the dustjacket exhibits the 1st state points with the oversized price and double strokes to the dollar sign. Original maps present in all three volumes, with a minor repair to a tear at the mounting fold of The Fellowship.

May 19th, 1955 Dear Miss Turnbull, Your munificent and magnificent gift arrived safely on May 17th (I think). I am ashamed of not letting you know at once, but I have been vexed with 'administrations' during the last few days. Though sending off the last (marginal note) 'and at last' items for Vol III might have seemed a suitable occasion for the withdrawing of at least one cork, I have so far refrained: but when I drink I shall remember with (verso) a gratitude at least as warm and deep as Old Rory felt for his bottles of Old Winyards. I can only hope Vol. III will be up to it! Yours sincerely, J.R.R. Tolkien Envelope hand addressed and canceled from Oxford on May 19, 1955 and addressed to: Miss Turnbull, Airy Hill, Whitby, Yorkshire Housed in a Custom Leather Binder lined with beautiful handmarbled papers by Joan Ajala of Australia.
