Art of the LoTR slipcase

Perhaps this has been mentioned elsewhere, but last night I discovered that the slipcase for my HC 1st printing of Wayne & Christina's The Art of the Lord of the Rings is printed backwards. Every other slipcase I have (including the companion Hobbit Art volume) is oriented so that the front of the book is facing the same direction as the front (title side) of the slipcase. In other words, when shelved (spine out) all titles face right. Not so with this volume. I'm wondering if anyone else noticed this and whether this apparent mistake was corrected (have there been additional printings?).

Tolkienbooks.net (which I trust) lists the 1999 Poems from the Hobbit as a mini hardback. Wherever I search on the net to buy the book, using the same ISBN, it's always described as paperback/softcover. Only the Houghton Mifflin version comes up as hardback. Is there a softcover or is this just an error that's become attached to the book?

I get the feeling that it is a mistake based on the description which matches the current Mr Bliss:

"Published here for the first time with Tolkien's own colorful illustrations integrated into his comical story, this book also includes the original handwritten version of the story printed in facsimile at the back, giving readers of all ages two ways of enjoying this remarkable book."

Though if this is the case, then why not include Mr Bliss's companion Letters from Father Christmas in the series? Who knows? Personally, I'd be surprised if they did a pocket Mr Bliss.

I'm interested in purchasing CDs of the BBC Tolkien productions. This (2011) set has 19 CDs (5 Hobbit, 14 LoTR). The 2009 J.R.R. Tolkien Collection includes Tales from the Perilous Realm and J.R.R. Tolkien: An Audio Portrait. It has a total of 21 discs - with 4 each for The Hobbit and each book of the trilogy and an additional 5 for Tales and the Portrait. Does the newer set have more (Hobbit and LotR) content with its 3 additional discs (19 vs. 16)? From what I can glean from Amazon, the individually sold sets are as follows:

Tales: 3 discs
Audio Portrait: 2 discs
Hobbit: 5 discs (contains "bonus author interview")
LotR: 12 discs (one of which is music)

These seem to correlate with the 2009 set with the exception of the extra Hobbit disc (is this simply the bonus interview? - is this the same extra disc as the 2011 set?).

Can anyone sort this out for me?
