Thanks for this information, but I just can't find these compilations. Should I ask after them in my local GW store?

The early editions are extremely difficult to find now. My GW store had two of the FOTR editions at the end of last year but they are gone I'm afraid (I bought one for me and sent the other one to one of BGBM's customers on Neil's behalf).

I got the FotR compilation yesterday from Noble Knights Games, http://www.nobleknight.com/. They buy and sell out of print games books, so they may get another copy some time. I apparently got the last. :) But might be worth checking their stock every now and then.
