In 1993, Grafton Books stripped the wrappers from the remaining copies of the Unwin Paperbacks 2nd Impression and replaced them with a newly designed cover.

This is the (later) Second State of the Second Impression.

The Second Impression of this Unwin Paperbacks Edition has been seen with two different cover illustrations – the earlier (First) state featuring Roger Garland’s Eärendil and Elwing, and the later (Second) state featuring John Howe’s The Siege of Angband.

A Guide to the Contents of this volume can be found in the Articles section.
