Added a rarity to the Compleat Gyde to Tolkien Calendars today: the 2003 Tolkien's Ring calendar. Only three copies exist. A member (who created an illustration of Old Man Willow for it) was kind enough to part with it.

Hmm, maybe it's a wing of Brandy Hall--Merry's library and study where he compiles his research on Pipe-weed.

I would love an office like that.

what i cannot understand at all is that when you put the three deluxe next to each other the logo and text are not on the same hight. The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings have the logo on exact the same height, the CoH has the logo a bit higher then should be... also the text are not on the same line. This is a detail that would make the SET really look great. Sad they forgot to align the logo and text this time. The hole indeed is not there but you do not see that when they are on the shelves...
Also the paper used for The Lord of the Rings is very white, ... i like the US deluxe edition better there, since white paper always tend to give me a headache when reading.

Yes, it is strange that the black quarter-bound books do not match. Even within the History of Middle Earth set they do not match in height. Personally, I have a third print of LotR, second print of The Hobbit, and first of the Silmarillion, so at least the slipcases match in their faux leather covering.

I love leather bound books, but the Harper Collins books do have the tendency to fray at the pont where the leather meets cloth. I would love to see some full leather editions made again, similar to the super deluxe ones from the 1980's. That said, I again agree with Deagol that the new deluxe editions 'work' better together. I do have the one small gripe about there being no circular window in the CoH slipcase, but that is minor.

I have just realised that I have forgotten to include The History of The Hobbit in this update.

If anybody spots any more omissions - please let me know.
