I wonder if HC will make more boxes - I wouldn't be surprised considering the small initial amount (not to mention the 10 at least that were damaged according to Beren). After all, the 4-volume set was originally limited to 500 but then they made more (another 500?). Did anyone else snatch one (or 3) up on Amazon.uk for £135?



I'm glad I didn't purchase this set (and I did consider it). Essentially it is a set of Chinese-printed reprints in a slipcase that really differs only in size to the 4 volume set. If HC could be trusted to only stick to the 100 sets, it would be one thing, but they will quite probably just churn out a whole lot more slipcases at some point. For anyone who hasn't already got the 4 volume set (or the books individually), I can see the attraction, but otherwise, these seem to be fairly missable.

Thanks a lot for posting these

I was comparing the first printing of The Hobbit with the pictures shown here, and even though the limitation numbers do not appear, the ISBN number is different, so must be a later printing.

2004 1st Printing ISBN 0 00 711835 X
2012 Later Printing ISBN 978 0 00 711835 9



The bigger giveaway is that the later editions of LOTR, The Hobbit and Silmarillion are all printed by "Printing Express, Hong Kong".

This is from the Greisinger Museum, perhaps you see a difference here

Now we know where all the edition went, that were sold the last months!!



It makes for an impressive picture, but at the same time -- what a dull collection...

But you are missing that it is a limited edition

It appears that if lots of idiots people, take them up, then all of New Zealand will disappear and you have missed your chance, it is limited supply and if New Zealand no longer exists?


I'm in the process of moving to New Zealand at the moment and can confirm supply of New Zealand is unlikely to run out. However, if it does, Australia is just next door and most people don't know the difference anyway.

Yes, despite the lack of an impression number for The Hobbit, I certainly wasn't assuming it was a 1st.


Understood. It's a pity HC have left the impression number off the reprint as it just causes confusion.
