I have just had a look at The Peoples of Middle-Earth.

The text between the hardback and paperback is the same and uses the same page numbers (so the one volume hardback or paperback Index works with both sets of books).

Most of the hardbacks do include some colour plates which are not in the paperbacks. This appears to be the only omission from the paperbacks.

Tolkien gets a mention at about 19 minutes in, Stephen Fry talks to Peter Jackson about Tolkien. Should be on the BBC iPlayer for UK viewers for a week.

In the 2002 History of Middle-earth paperbacks from HarperCollins, are the frontispieces included, and are they in color?

Would there be anything else missing, compared either with the print-on-demand hardbacks or the three-volume set?

So the 27th October is correct for the release date?

Really looking forward to this book

Apparently they are referring to The Art of The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. The writer of the article is either badly informed or took a very free hand in interpreting his sources! Illustrations "recently discovered"? Far from it! Why do "experts" say that Tolkien borrowed heavily from his Roverandom pictures when illustrating The Hobbit, when he only adapted a single dragon? Roverandom was written after Tolkien himself (rather than son Michael) lost a toy dog? And then someone asks in the comments, why is the art in Oxford when The Hobbit was written in Leeds - which it wasn't! Save us from this kind of journalism (but buy our book! copies of which are now in the warehouse).
