It looks like the 3 volumes for the Companion and Guide will be issued as individual hardbacks, not paperbacks as on Amazon, on the 30th November 2017 for £40 each as well as a boxed set in September.

The J. R. R. Tolkien Companion and Guide Paperback

https://www.amazon.co.uk/J-R-Tolkien-C ... 3&sr=1-2&keywords=tolkien

This appears to be a paperback version of the book and is published on the 30th November 2017 for £40.

It is listed at 800 pages, whereas the estimate for the revised edition in September is 2400 pages, so it suggests that this is a cut-down version of the Companion and Guide.

No they are not, it looks like John Benjamin Tolkien (J.R.R. Tolkien's grandfather) was Henry's older brother, though nice to see this confirmed if anyone can.

If you look at this thread you should be able to see which version you have.

It is called The Hobbit dustjacket 1937 (MS Tolkien 32), by the Bodleian Library. The MS Tolkien 32 describes the location in the library where the original copy is stored of the artwork, this copy was used by the printers to create the published dustjacket.

I am not aware that Tolkien named this artwork but the dustjacket also contained text in the runes that describe the contents of the book.
