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.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/The-Hobbit-1966-Unwin-Books-J-R-R-Tolkien-/221178056092?pt=Fiction&hash=item337f3d4d9c

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

No problem. I'll try and get something up in the next few days.

I also had problems getting mine delivered, and it took several calls to HC customer services to finally get hold of it. It might be worth chasing it up if you've been waiting a while.

It doesn't help that whoever runs HC's Tolkien site hardly seems to bother. Last time I checked, they were still showing the 4 volume set on the front page, despite it having long since sold out, whilst the 5 volume set has yet to have a picture posted. At one point I wondered if it really existed.

Yes, despite the lack of an impression number for The Hobbit, I certainly wasn't assuming it was a 1st.
