ISBN unknown – see below
Hardback - Issued in a slipcase
Illustrated by Alan Lee
Hammond Page Ref.: None

Includes Thror’s Map and the Map of Wilderland on integral pages, together with colour and black & white illustrations by Alan Lee throughout.

Numbered, limited edition of 600 copies signed by Alan Lee.

Produced for Hatchards to celebrate their 200th anniversary.

ISBN 026110330X is given on verso of title page, but this is the ISBN of the standard Trade Edition not the Deluxe Edition. It may be that the 1997 Deluxe Edition was not assigned a separate ISBN number because it was produced for Hatchard’s rather than for general sale.

Two other similar numbered, limited editions of 250 copies were issued by HarperCollins, probably for release in Australia and Canada.
