I have the mini hardback version, which is a 2nd impression, and this is the only version that I am aware of and the ISBN number is correct on Tolkienbooks.net, they also have an ISBN13 number 9780261103894 on the back of the book which is not referenced on Tolkienbooks.net

Having searched abebooks for these they are coming up as paperback but I think that is just listing errors, though if you are thinking of buying one, I would ask the seller to confirm that it still has the dust wrapper.

This was on the TV in 2013 but in case you missed it like me, then it is on Tuesday the 30th December at 9pm on BBC 4 or later on the iPlayer.

"CS Lewis's biographer AN Wilson goes in search of the man behind Narnia - bestselling children's author and famous Christian writer, but an under-appreciated Oxford academic and an aspiring poet who never achieved the same success in writing verse as he did prose.

Although his public life was spent in the all-male world of Oxford colleges, his private life was marked by secrecy and even his best friend JRR Tolkien didn't know of his marriage to an American divorcee late in life. Lewis died on the same day as the assassination of John F Kennedy and few were at his burial; his alcoholic brother was too drunk to tell people the time of the funeral. Fifty years on, his life as a writer is now being remembered alongside other national literary heroes in Westminster Abbey's Poets' Corner.

In this personal and insightful film, Wilson paints a psychological portrait of a man who experienced fame in the public arena, but whose personal life was marked by the loss of the three women he most loved.

The picture refers to a competition that HC are running at the moment.

http://www.tolkienchristmas.com/

If you look at that page you will see the same books but with the current slipcased HOME 3 volume.

I think they were doing a publicity photo and the current HOME 3 volumes would not fit in the box, so they used the leather 3 volume HOME instead.
