Attached are some images of the second impression boxed set. Hobbit is 4th impression and the others are 2nd Impression. The books seem to be about par for the course quality-wise. The slipcase is somewhat flimsy, as seems to be standard for HarperCollins at the moment.

Depends what the "etc" is. If the "etc" is a small punch on the nose, I'd say decline as you can do better. However, if the "etc" is either an aged cheese or a family sized bag of Malteasers, I would definitely give that serious consideration.

Merry Christmas all (it is already twenty minutes into Christmas here in NZ as we get to do everything before the rest of the planet as we are special).

Here are some pictures that I snagged off an eBay auction. Like the others, it is "available for a limited time only". So presumably, that means "at least 9 years" (or "longer than pretty much any edition of any other book on the planet") if the Hobbit/LoTR are anything to go by :)

EP have released a leather-bound 'Fall of Arthur'. Might be of interest to some. I don't personally collect American books, but I do have the EP releases (so I have ordered a copy). Note that international buyers need to ring them up to order (but the person took my order was very polite and helpful, and international postage was only $8 on top of the US price).
