The First State of the dustwrapper was used for the 1st and 2nd Impressions.

The Second State of the dustwrapper was introduced after the Tolkien Centenary and was used for the 3rd to 6th Impressions.

The 3rd Impression was issued in an unpriced HarperCollins dustwrapper that combines the Tolkien photograph on the lower cover with the unmodified lettering on the upper cover. The Second State of the dustwrapper is shown opposite, while the First State is shown opposite the entry for the HarperCollins Illustrated Edition.
