Well done, a very impressive website and collection, I am also very envious of the bookcases themselves

I noticed a copy of the Alan Lee three volume 1992 Lord of the Rings (http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=82540) on David Miller's site and am intrigued by the box.

It has the HarperCollins logo but Encore instead of HarperCollins, the blue case looks to be made of different material to my box-set and the Runes are also different at the top and bottom of the box.

Has anybody seen this version before or could shed any further light on it?

Am I missing something here, is this the US 1951 Hobbit or UK 1951 Hobbit, it looks like the GA&U version to me, from what little is left of the original Dust Jacket?

American Edition. Second Revised Edition, Fifth Impression. 5B. "Identical to the British 5th printing.except for the Houghton Mifflin notation at the base of the spine. The title page states "London, George Allen & Unwin Ltd, Museum Street"; the colophon shows the A&U St. George and the Dragon insignia and the addresses of the publishers offices worldwide; and the title page verso shows the full printing history." Green pictorial boards. Pictorial Eps. Color frontis. Half-title verso notes "Also by J. R. R. Tolkien | Farmer Giles of Ham" / Green boards light and attractive. Light toning to edges. Small rubbing/fraying to bottom edge of boards. Faint blue stain over foot of spine (may be color bleed from jacket. Light dusting to top edge of text block. Partial jacket. Missing front panel entirely and top third of rear panel. Remains of jacket in mylar protector. Bookseller Inventory # 017163

I got the same email as well.

I am hoping that HarperCollins would think about an independent release of the Audio CD of the so far unreleased audio, by Tolkien, from the The Hobbit, as they appear to be facing issues with producing the Facsimile Hobbit.
