Deluxe collector's edition featuring the definitive edition text and containing a full-colour reproduction of Tolkien's painting of the dragon, Glaurung. The book is quarterbound and stamped on the front board with a gold motif previously seen only on the first edition hardback and is presented in a matching slipcase. Unfinished Tales is a collection of narratives ranging in time from the Elder Days of Middle-earth to the end of the War of the Ring, and provides those who have read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with a whole collection of background and new stories from the twentieth century's most acclaimed popular author. The book concentrates on the realm of Middle-earth and comprises such elements as The Quest of Erebor, Gandalf's lively account of how it was that he came to send the Dwarves to the celebrated party at Bag-End; the emergence of the sea-god Ulmo before the eyes of Tuor on the coast of Beleriand; and an exact description of the military organization of the Riders of Rohan. Unfinished Tales also contains the only story about the long ages of Numenor before its downfall, and all that is known about such matters as the Five Wizards, the Palantiri and the legend of Amroth. The tales were edited by Christopher Tolkien, who provides a short commentary on each story, helping the reader to fill in the gaps and put each story into the context of the rest of his father's writings. This deluxe collector's edition includes a full-colour facsimile of Tolkien's painting, 'Glorund sets forth to seek Turin', which illustrates his narrative 'The Children of Hurin' a fold-our reproduction of the definitive map of Middle-earth drawn by Christohper Tolkien. The book is foil stamped with a Numenorean horn that appeared on the first edition hardback and is housed in a matching slipcase.

Well found this On Facebook (with some comments)
Daniel Helen on the Tolkien Society:
Why is _Tolkien On Fairy-stories_, published only five years ago (today!), so expensive?
It's over £300 on Amazon
https://fbexternal-a.akamaihd.net/safe ... 28expanded_edition%29.jpg

Morgan:
I'm surprised HarperCollins didn't anticipate higher demand. I suppose it is quite scholarly

David Doughan:
Well, the version edited by Anderson and Flieger is indeed a scholarly work, containing not only the essay itself, but introduction, notes, the two preliminary drafts (and notes on those), bibliography, index ... etc. However, if you just want the essay itself, that isn't expensive - you'll find it together with other things, e.g in _The Monsters and the Critics_, _Tree and Leaf_, or _Tales from the Perilous Realm_.

David Doughan:
However, I have just now looked on Amazon, and that is ludicrous!! £330.00??


Dimitra Fimi Verlyn herself was appalled that this book was only released in the UK and only via a very small print run. I took part in a round table discussion a few years go at Kalamazoo on _Tolkien On Fairy Stories_ and both Doug and Verlyn were unhappy with the fact that the publishers had deemed this book of 'less interest' than other Tolkien publications and had given it limited availability (which might explain the current price...)

Any comment ????
