"The publishing division of Oxford University’s Bodleian Library is to release a title featuring illustrations, letters and other material from J R R Tolkien’s archives that have never before been seen by the public, to coincide with a major exhibition on The Lord of the Rings author in 2018.

Tolkien: The Maker of Middle-Earth, written by the Bodleian’s Tolkien archivist Catherine McIlwaine, promises to take readers “far beyond what they know” about the author. New material to be showcased includes draft manuscripts of The Hobbit, Middle-Earth illustrations and paintings by Tolkien, and “letters from admirers including W H Auden, Joni Mitchell and Iris Murdoch”.

Samuel Fanous, the Bodleian’s head of publishing, said the aim was to create a book that accompanies an “unprecedented” exhibition, but also “to make something that will stand on its own”. The Bodleian will be selling the title in all English-language territories, while HarperCollins, Tolkien’s long-time publisher, has translation rights.

Tolkien, who was an Oxford professor for 35 years, left the bulk of his archives to the Bodleian. Additional material in the book is from Marquette University in Wisconsin. The exhibition on the author will open at the Bodleian in June 2018

I received a 2nd printing of The Art of The LotR and its slipcase is configured backwards, just as my 1st printing is (opposite that of The Art of the Hobbit). I'm unconvinced that the correct version truly exists. Anyone want to prove me wrong with a photo?

I forget, are we expecting a Deluxe Secret Vice and/or Lay of Aotrou and Itroun before Beren and Luthien or are those yet to be announced?

You can spot both sets in one of Deagol's photos posted with his Collector's Profile on Tolkienlibrary.com

I have thought about collecting the 2000s versions, as there are several other titles that match that series (including the Index - the only regular print run version I am aware of). What I have found impossible to find (at anything approaching a reasonable price) is the History of the Lord of the Rings boxed set (4 books) in that format (2002 rather than 1998). The print run must have been small. As you say, the ISBNs are identical, which is very annoying. I'm waiting to find the box set before I start collecting the rest, as it seems to be the most rare by far and I'm a bit of a completist. I don't typically collect paperbacks, so I'm hesitant to try too hard or spend much, but if anyone has a lead, let me know!
