People do refer to this as "uncut" but I think the correct term is "unopened pages". "Uncut" refers to pages that have not been trimmed, ie have ragged edges.

I have a re-bound 1936 Julienne and and the EETS Katerine.

The Preface to the Katerine says: "When SRTOd'A first planned this edition over forty years ago, she had hoped to have the collaboration of JRR Tolkien, the academic supervisor of her work on Seinte Julienne but, in the event, (initially becasue of the war of 1939-1945) he took no part in it"

So the Katerine has some (but limited) Tolkien interest.

As garm points out, twe books is a better choice from an academic point of view.

Like him, I would hesitate to advise you but have to say the 1936 Julienne is very rare in my experience and passing up a chance to get one would be hard. You may well find a copy of the Katerine again in the future.

I find the idea of focusing on just collecting boxed/slipcased editions quite a good idea. At a rough count there are about 50 UK different ones (I am including paperback boxed sets) on my shelves and I don't even have all the ones I would want in my collection (I don't have the pauline baynes hardback set for instance).

On garm's point about a single leaf suporting the whole weight: I have a really bad condition 1978 LOTR India-paper (no box, pages missing at the back and cover painted - yes, painted - grey - it cost a pound) so I have just tried holding one page and, lo and behold, it does work. Not even close to tearing. The paper is evidently deceptively strong.

On the subject of the Folio Editions, you may be interested in knowing that there was a Danish translation boxed set of Lord of the Rings also published in 1977 coinciding with the original Folio one which also used Fraser's drawings of Queen Margarethe's originals.

I attach some photos.

Just to support what garm says, I too have half a dozen A&U 1sts with variations.

I do worry about the shelf space issue but, as with garm, it is part of my interest in Tolkien and it did kind of sneak up on me (and most have only cost a pound or two - literally).
