It is December 5th, and the new Slipcased Deluxe Unfinished Tales is now officially available. I have ordered mine, though I expect it will take a week or so to get half-way around the world. Anyone else who gets one sooner, please post some comments or reviews here for the rest of us. Thanks!

I did find notes from HarperCollins that say the LOTR set contain "brand new reproductions of all of Tolkien’s original drawings and maps" - any comments on the quality of reproduction for these would also be appreciated!

Hi everyone (especially those of you in the UK),

I have not yet gotten my hands on a copy of the Hobbit+Lord of the Rings boxed set that came out a few months ago. I have been looking at the reviews on Amazon.co.uk (link below) and there are quite a few that call out the paper (yellowish rather than white and closer to paperback quality than a good hardcover), the small font size (to get the LOTR volumes to be the same size as the Hobbit, which has a better font size), the binding (glue rather than stitched), no fold-out maps or (possibly) other illustrations.

Can those of you with your hands on this particular set chime in with your thoughts on quality? Amazon is notoriously bad for mixing reviews of different editions together, so I want to get some opinions on this particular set from discerning collectors.

Thanks!


Here is the link to the official HarperCollins page for this set:
