Such a shame for that amount of effort to be limited to a print-run of 30. Hopefully the challenge of the translation was reward-enough.

Very poor spines on the dust jackets, the red text is very faded.

That red pigment really is fragile (same with cars - red is the worst colour for UV resistance). That's the worst I have seen, though -- the text has almost entirely disappeared.

Do you not think they look at little short to be the leather editions?

I don't think so. If you rotate "The Hobbit" deluxe and stick it next to the HoME as a scale comparison, it appears there is enough room for the Deluxe HoME to fit in the box. I think the box is much deeper than it looks, which accounts for the optical illusion of the books within the box looking much smaller (relative to those stacked on top).

These were an odd set. Super-Deluxe copies in dust-jackets, with mismatched numbers (and no number on one volume).

I wonder if it was assembled from damaged returns or something, as the books appear quite worn where they have rubbed together.
