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).

I think he has free shipping for US buyers, so $150 would be a bit low. There are quite a few books there for someone who just fancies reading them.

It is December 5th, and the new Slipcased Deluxe Unfinished Tales is now officially available. I have ordered mine, though I expect it will take a week or so to get half-way around the world. Anyone else who gets one sooner, please post some comments or reviews here for the rest of us. Thanks!

Official HarperCollins order page (tolkien.co.uk)




I ordered a copy from "speedyhen" on eBay a couple of days ago, which was about GBP 40 including postage to NZ. I've used them before to get the Fall of Arthur Deluxe (for a bit less than 40 including post) and it came in 5 days, so can recommend them.

GBP 34.89 + postage via website at the time of writing:

I will post some images from my set when I get them, I expect them to have changed from the first printing of this box-set, this is because they are not available for purchase at the moment, either online or in book shops.


Tolkien.co.uk still seem to have the boxed set for sale.

I have this set, & would agree with the comments so far. The slipcase itself is particularly thin/insubstantial feeling. The cloth coverings (books & slipcase) don't quite rescue the set from utter mediocrity. The quality of the paper doesn't seem any poorer than any other standard HarperCollins hardback(s) though. The only real redeeming quality is the design.

Any chance of posting up a picture of the slipcase?
