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).

Is that out next week? Totally forgot; thought it was late November for some reason. Also, A Tolkien Tapestry (Hb) is shipping next week, now that I look at my back orders.

I think they are referring to this eagerly awaited book (released on the 27th October 2011).

Wayne and Christina, Is this date correct?
