I know the seller of this item very well and have a lot of respect for ADC, but would anyone really want to have this item in their house, at this price

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Lord-Rings-Oak- ... es_EH&hash=item4cf1e0717e

As an aside, I thought I had to mention this one as well

A VERY RARE CHANCE TO GRAB SUCH A COLLECTABLE EDITION A TRUE COLLECTORS ITEM VERY COLLECTABLE AND A GREAT INVESTMENT


I'm struggling with this item, from the pictures the box set looks pretty good but the Dust Jackets are in appalling condition, so probably not the same set of books that came in the box set.

And another one, second edition's with accompanying dust jackets

Your trick will be getting the Unfinished Tales with the matching HoME cover to complete the set. That one took me years and is the only one that would be difficult to replace!


This is the edition that Stu refers to

I think the Print-on-Demand printing process is very different to the traditional process, so it is not possible to keep exactly the "original look & feel".

As I stated earlier, I still thank HarperCollins for using this process and hope more out of print editions will be added soon.

Aren't the covers black? My Index is certainly black.


You are right, it is the same colour as the index (black).

I bought a copy of "Sauron Defeated", here are my comments from earlier in the post.

I bought a copy of the POD version of Sauron Defeated and am able to compare it with the first edition. The dust jacket is a different colour to the original (the original cover is a burgundy, the new cover is brown and is lighter in colour than the cover of BOLT2). This is probably due to the new printing process. The barcode on the rear of the cover is about twice as big on this copy. I don't understand why these books have barcodes on them as they are printed to order, and I can't see any purpose that they serve The colour plates in the book are darker in the new book, but the quality of the reproduction is just as good as the original book. The copyright information shows This edition published by HarperCollinsPublishers 2010 1 I can't imagine that the number line would ever change with these books. The most obvious difference between the books are that the binding of the book is now black (the original binding is the same colour as the dust jacket). This is the same as the POD Index and I am assuming that all the POD History of Middle-Earth books have black bindings. Overall though I am very impressed with these books.


I didn't mention but they are glued and not sewn, I think all print on demand books would be glued. The covers are paper not cloth and as mentioned above the covers would appear to be same colour for every POD volume (brown). The page numbering is the same as the originals. If you buy the Index you will see it is identical to the other POD copies.
