- not true - The Hobbit had already been in print for a decade and a half by then.


Yeah, the article isn't the most accurate, but it is just a local paper piece.

My wife came across the following article:

http://www.malverngazette.co.uk/news/ ... &fb_action_types=og.likes

So I just found out that my wife knew George Sayer, as he lived a couple of doors down from her when she lived in Malvern. Apparently George was a lovely bloke.

So it turns out my wife almost has an indirect Tolkien connection (that said she also has a Peter Jackson connection as she had the parents of Richard Taylor as neighbours. I'll forgive her that one).

Doesn't come up that often sensibly priced as a BIN, so may be of interest to someone

What is the illustrated Collector's Edition you are referring to? I only have the three volume set of the two being discussed here but my first impression is that it is so large it is hard to manage in the hand.


The slipcased, illustrated one volume edition is the one linked to in the OPs post (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lord-Rings-To ... rd+of+the+rings+slipcased).

The *un*illustrated collector's edition I suggested avoiding is this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hobbit-Rings- ... d+of+the+rings+collectors


A agree with you that the illustrated editions are generally too large. They certainly aren't my first choice.
