I have just published another update at TolkienBooks.net:

The revision and expansion of the 2000-Present section of the bibliography has completed at last. It now includes over 80 entries, so for the sake of clarity has been split into three sections:

Books and Periodicals
This consists of books by Tolkien, together with books and periodicals including contributions by the Professor, i.e. sections A, B and C of Wayne Hammond’s Tolkien bibliography.

Letters, Artwork and Miscellanea
This collects together published letters (both partial and complete), artwork (published separately and in collections) and other miscellaneous bits and pieces, i.e. sections D, E and F of Wayne’s bibliography.

The Children of Húrin
At present there are only two editions of the latest Tolkien book, but HarperCollins have already announced a large print edition, and no doubt a paperback edition will appear after Christmas.

In addition, the intro-pages for each of the main sections of the bibliography have been re-styled and the navigation bars simplified a little.

The Tale Goes On section has been split in two, with the division made in 1990 to tie in with the acquisition of Unwin Hyman by HarperCollins:

After Tolkien Part 1 – 1974-1990

After Tolkien Part 2 – 1991-Onwards

Coming Next Month…The next section to be revised and updated will be The Hobbit. I hope to add details of the illustrations and maps included in each edition, and where possible the number of copies printed. If you have any suggestions for other information to include please leave a comment.

The main problem I have with the black quarter leather editions that HC put out was that nothing matched - they were all different heights, the spine lettering varied and they even changed the covering on the slipcase for the last one. They don't easily slide in and out of the slipcases either, and the cloth has a tendancy to fray.
Even though the more recent deluxe editions use cheaper binding materials, I think that they 'work' better and look much more presentable.

It is very good any news about a deluxe edition is released, but my opinion is that this news may change while the time moves on. The prize is never the same as announced in the end, the binding also not, and also not all books being discussed do finally see the light... or much later.

I went inside the HC backend and saw the ISBN, pub. date, description of the Silmarillion title with THE SILMARILLION: 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION (de luxe edition)... I always thought the Silmarillion would match the three we have now. Even speculated so much on it that i have now ten shrinkwrapped 1sts of each lying here, waiting for a Silmarillion to finally go for sale. So it seems now (but may change tomorrow) they will go for a 30th anniversary edition and make it special and not to go in the set...


time will tell... as usual... and I will see what info i can find and ask the people at HC to tell me more.

I agree that it does not look like a hobbit hole, but it really is very nice! The workmanship is exceptional. Very nice design!

I agree with Deagol. It seems strange that Harper Collins would already have the current set of deluxe editions in print, and then decide not to follow it up with a Silmarillion to match. I do, however, love all of the quarter leather books they have released, so I am sure it will be nice. Hopefully, it will be a truly limited edition (1000 or less), instead of the 10,000+ that they have been cranking out on the other deluxe editions. I would also love to see it as an illustrated deluxe. I really enjoyed CoH with Alan Lee's works.

Whatever the case, it is still very early. I suppose that there is a chance that it could end up matching the other current deluxe books. The price of 60 GBP certainly matches, while other recent quarter leather editions have been listed at 100 GBP. Any thoughts Beren?
