Spotted this yesterday, what a horror! I've seen people on Facebook discussing this monstrosity too. My biggest complaint is the very unprofessional binding attempt (lumpy, not labeled well) but the condition of the innards doesn't entice me either.

eBay Item #261381347943



I can see what they were trying to achieve - the lumps are the internal structure of the Hobbit Hole. Sadly, it all doesn't work very well.

Looking for a copy of The Book People 2012 collectors edition with dust-wrapper. Only recently found out this existed thanks to An Illustrated Tolkien Bibliography . UK collector.



Hi Jeff, This one seems to come up on eBay UK quite regularly (and cheaply). Just keep your eyes out -- I paid about 2 pounds for mine, if I remember rightly. There seem to have been plenty of copies printed.

Here is the (early link) for the forthcoming Alan Lee illustrated one-volume 60th Anniversary edition as well.

From the description provided:
This new edition is housed in a special transparent slipcase and includes a brand new setting that features the definitive 50th anniversary text, which together with Alan’s beautiful paintings provides the reader with the ultimate edition with which to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the work’s first publication.




"Special Transparent Slipcase". Ugh. Sounds astonishingly like cheap and nasty plastic packaging...

I'm definitely going to start skipping some of these "meaningless milestone" releases, I think (or at least will wait and see, rather than preorder).
