Well, there you have it - horses for courses, and all that. Personally, I love the three volume Lee set. The green leather of the spines happens to be my favourite colour; it sets the gilt edged papers off beautifully. And the books are just the right size; they fit in the hand comfortably. But of course, I wouldn't be without either of them (nor their shelf-mates, the Lee TH and the Nasmith Silm).

I like all that sort of stuff; what I call the 'fancy' end of the range. But for me, it's the rarer material which quickens the pulse: stuff from the twenties, thirties etc, far away from Middle earth. Such stuff as dreams are made of!

1) 1963 deluxe box-set with Pauline baynes art. 2) 1992 lotr green box-set signed by Alan Lee and limited to 250 copies 3) The deluxe folio editions


I agree with garm, but having the single volume LOTR Deluxe signed by Alan Lee and the the three volume LOTR Deluxe set signed by Alan Lee, I prefer the single volume set.

It goes without saying that my current favourite book in my collection is the 1982 Super Deluxe Silmarllion, just wish it was numbered less than 100

It has the same ISBN in the pictures as my copy?

By looking at tolkienbooks.net, the title page shows the incorrect ISBN, further details below

The dust jacket has no price so may be a Book Club Edition as in my earlier post.

Good choices. I think I've got most of the LotRs I want. What I _need_ for the collection would be more in the line of academic / poetry stuff -

Songs for the Philologists

Sir Orfeo (1944) I know it's reprinted in Tolkien Studies, but I like originals.

A Little Book of Yorkshire Poetry

And of course a copy of the 1982 super deluxe Silmarillion, but that goes without saying.
