The picture of the boxed set on HarperCollins' site is of the one issued in 2005, so one shouldn't judge by that. The new (further corrected and augmented) hardback edition of our Reader's Companion will have a slightly different dust-jacket. As for The Lord of the Rings, our understanding is that the new three-volume edition will be a reprint of the existing text, not reset, and without further corrections (though this last remains to be seen). The new one-volume edition, however, will be reset and will include at least some of the corrections we've listed in our online addenda and corrigenda; this will have new pagination, with the index revised to suit. We have not had direct involvement with the reset edition except to comment on a further correction (which was approved by Christopher Tolkien), and to revise our 'Note on the Anniversary Edition'; and we've not been informed of any correction or emendation beyond this, which is not to say that there has been none, and as Urulöké remarks, resetting often produces new errors. We'll know better when we get copies.

Thanks very much for the information.

Am I missing something? Isn't the 60th Anniversary LOTR boxset just a reissue of the 50th Anniversary version?

Just happened to notice that Easton Press has the History of The Lord of the Rings (four books - Return of the Shadow, Treason of Isengard, War of the Ring, End of the Third Age) in their trademark green leather and gold gilt.

Should be shipping later this month, $400 approximately.

Bah! That's likely to be me $400 poorer, then! Thanks for the heads up.

Do you recall whether it sold &/or for what price, Stu?

Sorry, I don't. I think it might have been a Buy It Now, where the asking price was above what seemed reasonable. I think at the time I was possibly looking for the HC super deluxe and it didn't look good value relative to one of those.

I guess one of the advantages of being a Hobbit is you can easily hide inside other things.

Seriously, though - you have to ask what the seller is thinking. And if the seller isn't the same person as glued the book inside the cover of a different one, you have to ask what they were thinking.
