It is also possible to get the hard-to-find 1992 HC Unfinished Tales that matches UK HoME rather well (apart from the JRRT on the spine)...

I find this book impossible to get hold of. In fact I think they only printed 5 copies to tease collectors like me

I also can't lovingly look at my HOME's any more as I took Khamul's advice and turned them round so the spines are inwards. but it is a good idea, I have a 1st/4th BOLT1 and the spine has gone a horrible purple shade because of sun-damage, I really do not want this to happen to my main set.

A great place to start for Tolkien collecting is a regular on this site, Beren's, own website and in particular the section on Tolkien Collectors.

Beren's Tolkien Collectors

Hope you find some inspiration and welcome to Tolkien collecting.

Eric the Red The British George Allen & Unwin first hardback editions The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales and The Children of Húrin match the UK History of Middle-Earth Hardbacks in that they are the same height, but no other similarity, which is not surprising given that The Silmarillion was published in 1977 and The Children of Húrin in 2007 (30 years later).

The US editions do not match even in size as far as I am aware.

As an aside, while we are talking about HOME editions, like most people my UK Sauron Defeated has a faded spine.

As I now have a full set of UK 1/1sts, I would hate for these to fade like Sauron Defeated, is this the only copy known to have problems with fading or should I store the books completely out of sunlight.

Are the US HOME hardback set all still in print?
