The 5-Volume box looks exactly like the 4-Volume box with the addition of the new title listed below the others (and its expanded width). From the "lavish collector's gift" description, I almost expected something new and improved. A nice set nonetheless.

I'll likely cancel - I don't like that policy at Book Depository. I had ordered from them because I found a cheaper price than Amazon and others and when I complained that I wasn't notified about the publication date change (the first one) they gave me a 10% discount. Anyone know the story behind the delays? Really think it will be cancelled? - that would be a shame.

2014 now! First this fall, then next fall, now 2 years. I preordered on Book Depository - I don't want them to have my money for 2 years before I have anything in my hands.

I will keep slumming it on Ebay - haven't seen any come up yet and you're right about sellers not being clear. I'm not stuck on a particular impression - I just want the dust jacket I referenced (as seen below)

I'm having trouble finding the 1997 HC Illustrated Hobbit Hardback (ISBN 026110330X) that matches the Alan Lee 3-vol LOTR and Nasmith illustrated Silmarillion and Complete Guide to Middle Earth (Foster). I have the almost-matching volume that is commonly sold now that features an updated dust jacket from 2009 (http://www.hobbithunter.nl/gallery2/v ... glish+Hobbit+114.jpg.html). But I'm looking for the dust jacket with the close-up of the dragon on the cover (no gold border across the top and bottom) and the HC logo on the spine in red and blue rather than white (http://www.hobbithunter.nl/gallery2/v ... ngelse+hobbit+92.jpg.html). Any suggestions on how to get my hands on one?
