Go this message from Thornton's, if you are interested:


Tolkien, J.R.R.,
The Hobbit. Collector's Box Edition 2000.
Harper Collins, 2000, Illustrated by J.R.R. Tolkien and the Cover design also based on artwork by Tolkien . With Thror's Map and the Map of Wilderland on integral pages, together with the eight standard black and white illustrations. This limited edition collector's box includes a copy of the book in reduced format, with the ISBN 0261102001 recorded on the verso of the title page. This would seem to be an error, because the same number was used for the 1991 Hardback Edition of The Hobbit. The boxed set itself has the ISBN - 0007105096 , a CD recording of Tolkien reading Riddles in the Dark', eight postcards and The Map of Tolkien's The Hobbit. (map still shrink-wrapped) Also included is a flyer advertising Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings films, a full colour fold-out map of Wilderland by John Howe showing Bilbo"s journey, complete with a booklet by Brian Sibley about the writing of the Hobbit; Eight colour postcards featuring Tolkien"s own maps and paintings, An exclusive CD of an archive recording from 1952 of J.R.R. Tolkien reading Bilbo"s encounter with Gollum. A fine copy. Only the inside walls of the box have suffered when this was opened.

GBP 45.00

Harpercollins - Gold Ring on Chain???

I was wondering would anyone have any information on a Gold Ring on Chain (The One Ring) that was issued by Harpercollins.

Normally I would not have much interest in an item like this (books being the main focus), but the fact that it was issued by the publisher made it more interesting. It was included in an auction for a 1997 LOTR Deluxe and a 1999 Hobbit Deluxe (The limited editions of 1000 and 2500). In the listing the Seller stated that the Ring was issued by the publishers in a limited edition of 200. I was surprised that I had not come across one of these before this.

The package has arrived and it does indeed have the Harpercollins logo on the Front of the Ring Box (A Black Box with Harpercollins Logo in Gilt on the Top). The Ring is Engraved with a Runic Inscription.

So, I am just curious does anyone know anything more about this item.

- Was it issued prior to the Release of the Films or was it issued in celebration of the Films.

- Was it indeed limited to 200.

- What price it retailed at. etc. etc.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks.
