I got my Deluxe Edition today and it does not really look like Stu's Picture.

In fact it is very similiar to the other Deluxe Editions, The Tolkien Logo is the same as on on The Hobbit, LOTR, Children of Hurin, etc. (i.e. not circled), there is no underline between J.R.R. Tolkien and "The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun".

The colour of the binding is also the same as the slipcase in the picture, not the darker book colour.

Also, according to Amazon, the deluxe (or special as it also seems to be called) edition will contain a facsimile page of Tolkien's original manuscript. The regular edition will not contain this.


The regular edition does contain this page

As mentioned earlier this year on Tolkienlibrary.com this book came out in the UK in April priced at £7.99.

David Brawn from HarperCollins described it as "This book is a paperback edition of the hardback and matches the other paperbacks illustrated by Alan Lee (and The Silmarillion paperback by Ted Nasmith). Its contents are identical to the hardback, with one small text correction."

I am trying to find the text correction mentioned, but if anyone knows what it is please post it here.

The date for the Super-Deluxe will not be announced until at least the 19th May and the Audio Book versions have been put back to the Autumn(Fall) of this year to add more content, according to an email received today from HarperCollins.

I have also found "Oxford Poetry 1915" by Blackwells which includes "Goblin Feet" by J.R.R. Tolkien.

I found this Podcast Tolkien at Oxford to be quite interesting (only 2 episodes so far)

Tolkien and Languages: Ancient and Invented
Stuart Lee and Elizabeth Solopova

Tolkien and the Oxford English Dictionary: 'The Ring of Words'
Stuart Lee, Peter Gilliver, Jeremy Marshall, Edmund Weiner

There is another Podcast on this page which people may also find interesting (Oxford University: Podcasts from Medieval English lectures)
