The main problem I have with the black quarter leather editions that HC put out was that nothing matched - they were all different heights, the spine lettering varied and they even changed the covering on the slipcase for the last one. They don't easily slide in and out of the slipcases either, and the cloth has a tendancy to fray.
Even though the more recent deluxe editions use cheaper binding materials, I think that they 'work' better and look much more presentable.

So it's not going to match the recent deluxe editions of LR, H and CoH? That is a shame. I know of a lot of people who want to complete their sets.

I hope that this cloth and leather edition is of better quality than previous HC attempts, which have been a little disappointing when compared with old Unwin editions.

This site was down when I was searching the other day.

http://www.bfdc.co.uk/

Type tolkien into the search box and there are LOTS of first day covers - I was going to mention them at TolkienBooks, but have chickened out - they are a website on their own!

I am looking for information on Tolkien-related stamps issued in the UK by the Royal Mail, especially First Day Covers issued in 1992 and 2004.

Does anybody know what was issued?

If you own any some scans would be appreciated.

Just noticed that Jeremy has a copy of the original publication at Rown's Books - at a very reasonable price as well - the other copies for sale at the moment are over $1,000.
