Finally got my Deluxe B&L today after my original order apparently got lost in transit and the seller (Speedy Hen) being out of stock for a long while. Has the slipcase height been mentioned here? There's an 1/8 inch gap above the book which is quite a lot more than any other in the series. The first 10 volumes in their slipcases are more or less level as they sit on the shelf, but B&L stands noticeably taller. It's a small thing, sure, and I'm sure glad they went back to L.E.G.O. for this one. I just wish HC would take a bit more pride in its design and consistency. They fix one thing only to mess up another.

Let's hope it's just a temporary placeholder image...

I'm wondering if early printings of this edition were bound in cloth. I have the 6 matching, oversized illustrated volumes (3 LotR, Hobbit, Sil, Foster's Guide) all of which are bound in lovely cloth - except for The Silmarillion. Mine is a 6th printing, bound in cheap blue paper at our favorite Printing Express in Hong Kong. If early printings are cloth-bound, I'd like to find one. TolkienBooks.net interestingly notes that the first printing has a fold-out map and misspells "Naysmith" on the dj.

I'm still working to acquire the 1st illustrated edition with the less common dj that was discussed at length in a previous thread. I believe this was bound in black cloth-covered boards. Would you believe that I've ordered it on Ebay twice from different highly-rated sellers, and both times it's been lost in transit! I'm starting to think there's someone in the postal service collecting these at my expense!

It sounds like the 3 volumes will not be individually slipcased, but only have one large slipcase. In terms of continuity, I find this a little disappointing, along with the choice to bind them all in black. Why not differing shades of black/gray? The slipcases within a slipcase of the collections gathering the first 4 and the 5 books in the series were a bit overkill, but being able to shelve each book with its own slipcase is a bonus in my view.
