Hi and thanks for visiting! Looks like you are in the USA, but would consider UK or other editions too? Just curious.

For my personal favorite recent printing with nice paper and cloth binding, etc. I like the three volume edition illustrated by Alan Lee (picture attached below). Not expensive, each book can be found new for maybe $10-15, the boxed set new is probably closer to $80 or so if you want that.

The edition you show looks really nice (I haven't opened one to see the paper quality myself yet, but I am sure someone here has), but I am not a fan of the quality of the translucent slipcase. Does look nice from a distance though!

Hope this helps.

Will probably have to fix again at some point in the future, let me know if you see anything strange as always.

Sorry about that, there is definitely something wrong. Working on it.

I put in a bunch of bids but didn't win anything (glad someone will enjoy them).

One thing I noticed a couple of times, though - there are a lot of eBay links that do not work if you have an exclamation point in your seller ID. For example, I just clicked on "see sellers other listings" then checked the "completed listings box" and got "that seller ID doesn't exist". The URL had been changed to "3in%21". Just one sample of a few problems I had this week when browsing eBay looking at your items. Might be worth a change!
