Not quite as rare as a Latin "Fellowship" (!), but my Christmas gift was a '67 Hobbit (which is the least common year post-1958 that I've seen sold over the last 6 months). I expect lots of them will turn up now!

Such a shame for that amount of effort to be limited to a print-run of 30. Hopefully the challenge of the translation was reward-enough.

That red pigment really is fragile (same with cars - red is the worst colour for UV resistance). That's the worst I have seen, though -- the text has almost entirely disappeared.

Do you not think they look at little short to be the leather editions?

I don't think so. If you rotate "The Hobbit" deluxe and stick it next to the HoME as a scale comparison, it appears there is enough room for the Deluxe HoME to fit in the box. I think the box is much deeper than it looks, which accounts for the optical illusion of the books within the box looking much smaller (relative to those stacked on top).
