Sorry for resurrecting this thread. Can I just clarify. This, originally, was a slipcased set (standard hardbacks) of first impressions; hence Deagol's "Only first impressions were issued in the slipcase" on TolkienBooks. But are these now selling, new, with later impressions? i.e. did HC decide to slipcase up sets again, in 2011 at some point? HC themselves don't seem to have it up on their site anymore, but there seems to be plenty of listings kicking around selling new sets --hence why I'm asking.

It is a 2011 re-issue. The slipcase seems to be slightly thinner than the original.

That is an interesting point. My understanding is that Zaentz and company have no rights to material outside of the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings. However, some of the accounts of the First and Second Age are briefly mentioned in the appendices, including the tale of Beren and Luthien. I shudder to think of what jackson's adaptation of that would look like.


If the new movies are successful, I imagine New Line's lawyers will be doing everything they can to ensure they can film anything vaguely mentioned in the appendices.

I thought that might be the case, somehow. Other than missing out Tom Bombadil, I thought it was great, but hey, CT is entitled to his opinion, even if it is wrong :)

Edit: Add, so you were just winding me up, huh. Bah, etc.

Sorry, but of course that's his point. The movies are, for a start, derivative; additionally, in my opinion, they're crap --as they have very little in common with the works of J. R. R. Tolkien. That these are better known (if that is actually the case) is a travesty, both for fans of literature, & for The Tolkien Estate --as they are a catastrophic misrepresentation of the literature they derive from.

This in itself is not (or does not need to be) particularly important to you or me --but it is for a the heirs of J. R. R. Tolkien, whose job it is to preserve & share the literature (& its "message", whatever that may be) that Tolkien left the world. I suggest to you that Christopher thinks Jackson has made a poor job of this.

Out of interest, is CT on record as having an opinion with regards to the BBC Radio dramatisation of the LoTR? I thought that it succeeded in pretty much every aspect where the movies utterly failed.

Hi, I was wondering if any of Tolkien's other stuff has been made in similar editions as these:

[EDIT removed hotlink to tolkienlibrary]

The Children of Hurin hardcover I've seen around SORT OF matches these but not really? I've only read The Hobbit and LoTR btw, and wanted to get these versions because I really like the original cover art, so if I get any other stuff (History of Middle Earth, etc) I'd prefer them to match if possible.


Thanks!


The Lord of the Rings Single Volume 50th Anniversary Edition also has the matte finish. Plus there is another volume of the 'History of the Hobbit' not shown in that picture (as it was initially a two-volume effort).

There are no matching editions of HoME, S&G, CoH, etc.
