I agree with all you've said Stu. That's part of the reason I'm not too keen on paying top dollar for these books (the price for Tales from the Perilous Realm is laughable right now).

I might push myself to get the super deluxe editions of CoH and S&G if I can get them at half price this year (I know they were going for GBP 125 at last year's Black Friday sale, but I just didn't have the funds then). And that's only because I've never owned a true leather-bound book, and I feel like a Tolkien book in this format might be a worthy one to own.

I agree, Stu. Even the deluxe editions of the Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, and Tales From The Perilous Realm, were really just about the cover and slipcase matching those of the deluxe series. I really wish these editions had some "content" that set them apart from the regular hardcover and paperback editions.

Oh that's nice to know. How exciting to hope that there might be some new Tolkien material in the deluxe edition. Thanks Trotter!

Thanks for the information, Stu.

I'm curious to know what motif they will use for the frontispiece. And also, what colour the book will be. Perhaps they will use a shade of red/orange? The speculation is fun.

Also, I wonder if they will include any additional material, like drawings or illustrations to "fill out" the book? As I understand, the book itself is rather slim.
