I have only seen one small pic of the clamshell. In hand it looks a little lighter - chestnut brown I would say. Like CoH the clamshell is a heavier duty leather of a different colour to the book - but the colour difference is more marked with this new deluxe edition. The book itself it bound in a mid-brown leather which is very soft, so we will have to handle this book carefully!
The clamshell has a lift up shelf on a ribbon to make extracting the book a little easier, but I am unwilling to tug on it just in case it isn't 100% solid... Unlike CoH, the page corners have been rounded off to approximate the round corners of the binding.

Links to a few quick snaps below. Apologies for the quality. The colours are lightened a little by the flash.

Deagol, can you speak to the color of the book? Is it very close to the picture released by HC, or is it like the Super Deluxe CoH, where the photo made the clamshell look black when it was actually blue? I am hoping for it to be close to the color in the photo, which seems to resemble the color of the 1998 Signed Deluxe Silmarillion.

Also, did you say you ordered on 20-May, at around 10:00AM? I was about 16 hours after that, so I am guessing that I should be somewhere in the 50 to 70 range(?), seeing as how you got #30.

Deagol, glad to hear it's a nice looking book and it sounds like you are pleased with it. Would be very interested in seeing a photo if you get a chance (but understand real life can get in the way of such things!).

My copy arrived today! Safe and sound and nicely packaged. Number 30. A very nice looking book. There are a few small differences when compared to CoH, but nothing of any great significance.

Emphasis on 'somewhere'.
If I find it I'll post an image.

PS. While I was looking for it I did find a TS "I've got a Hobbit habit" t-shirt from 92!
