You sound like you are on the path to becoming a collector

You might end up with something like these

Thanks for that!

I'm not a collector; I'm only trying to put together a set for reading purposes, having never read them before. While I'm drawn more to the aesthetics of the paperback editions, it helps to know that they would be missing some of the color plates from the hardbacks.

Maybe this is how one becomes a collector: one version has this, another version has that, and you end up wanting them all.

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?
