Over on the 'New releases' thread, I was asked for some pictures of HC's recent 5 volume box set of deluxe editions. Rather than clog up that thread, I'll add them here.

First batch is the complete box.

Description: This lavish gift box of Tolkien's seminal works comprises five deluxe slipcased editions - The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, The Children of Hurin, and Tales from the Perilous Realm. With an individual retail value of GBP340, this quintet represents a saving of GBP90, and only 100 sets have been made.


My mathematics is not very good, I can't reconcile £340-£90=£397.69


The text is from the HC website, where the box was listed at £250 full price - i.e. £90 cheaper than paying £340 for the individual books. Although, as the box appears to have been permanently discounted by 25%, the saving was even bigger.

Okay, a couple pictures hastily taken on my iPod (which has a terrible camera). I'll take some more pictures with a real camera in the next few days, but hopefully these will give some idea of what the set looks like.

Oh, and this.

I think it's the picture of the spine bent back on itself that makes me want to pay £100.
