I know most people on here don't collect Easton Press (My only two exceptions with regards to restricting myself to collecting UK books are the Easton Press Tolkien books and the HM History of Middle Earth)..

Anyway, the quality is very good. Only negative comment is that the manuscript page is monochrome (the HarperCollins editions are colour). Otherwise, is typical Easton press with the Moire Silk endpapers, ribbon marker, stitched binding, 22kt gold stamping and gilt page edges, Acid Neutral paper, etc.

Cost was $98 (US), including international shipping. My guess is this is the only leatherbound version of this book we are likely to see, so might be of interest to those who typically wouldn't buy an EP volume. Certainly more for your money than the not-much-cheaper HarperCollins deluxe slipcased edition.

If the superdeluxe was really as cheap as it always (erroneously) shows up as (on eBay, etc), they might have shifted the whole 500 copies in the last six and a half years!

Amazing to still see it is available. They must only sell a handful per year.

That said, it is still a book I really like - I just wish I didn't have three copies :)

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.
