I agree with you St. Troy, the pictured books you specifically asked about are (from what I can tell in the photo) trade editions with the dustjackets removed.

There have been deluxe editions issued for the HoMe volumes, see here: http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/gallery.php?subsection=81

The other volumes that you asked about have not had deluxe editions put out by HarperCollins.


That's correct. The other books in the images are just regular trade editions without jackets. I've seen a couple of people on the interwebs do this to create the illusion of them being matching books, which - of course - they are not.

I really dislike the green on the reprint Hobbit. I think that is the one volume where the first impression is MUCH better than the reprints.

Damn; I really like that set.


The individual books are easy enough to find on eBay (might take a couple of months). The slipcased set (either variant) is a little harder to find. I personally think they are much nicer than the later edition (which is a little larger and with the black-background dustjackets, rather than white).

For Hardback, you either need the HM version (used) or Easton Press (new or used).

That's about £900 too expensive.

I don't like Hyraxia books. Have pointed out errors on their listings before. They don't reply or correct (in my experience).
