Hi Turambar,

the text has been re-set and is the latest corrected version, so it will have some updates and corrections the 50th did not (and, Murphy's law and all, probably add a new mistake or two).

Also it has that fancy "transparent slipcase" that I would like to see before I form a final opinion on, but I have misgivings.

But it does look remarkably like the 50th anniversary edition.

Has it been ten years already?

Just happened to notice that Easton Press has the History of The Lord of the Rings (four books - Return of the Shadow, Treason of Isengard, War of the Ring, End of the Third Age) in their trademark green leather and gold gilt.

Should be shipping later this month, $400 approximately.

You can still get the artwork as a poster, but it does not have the exhibition information on it any more:

http://www.bodleianshop.co.uk/j-r-r-tolkien-s-hobbit-poster.html

£6.25

Product Code: PS0067
This poster was created for the Bodleian's 'Tolkien Life and Legend' exhibition, back in 1987. We sell so many, it's still in print over twenty years on! Exclusive to the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford.

It's the Trek Con sticker that makes this worth an order if magnitude (plus) more than its siblings. I guess.

It was recently pointed out to me that an old news article (Signed Lord of the Rings, Reeve's Tale, Manuscript Letters for Auction Sunday Nov 27 in Australia) from 2011 was no longer accessible on in the news archives. Evidently this has been the case since the spam attack here almost two years ago, and I missed it!

It has been fully restored, and hopefully will be of use again to those coming here from external links to it.
