As requested, I've posted some pictures of the box set, which I've placed in the following thread.

I wonder if HC will make more boxes - I wouldn't be surprised considering the small initial amount (not to mention the 10 at least that were damaged according to Beren). After all, the 4-volume set was originally limited to 500 but then they made more (another 500?). Did anyone else snatch one (or 3) up on Amazon.uk for £135?



I'm glad I didn't purchase this set (and I did consider it). Essentially it is a set of Chinese-printed reprints in a slipcase that really differs only in size to the 4 volume set. If HC could be trusted to only stick to the 100 sets, it would be one thing, but they will quite probably just churn out a whole lot more slipcases at some point. For anyone who hasn't already got the 4 volume set (or the books individually), I can see the attraction, but otherwise, these seem to be fairly missable.

Cornell University Press is reprinting J.R.R. Tolkien, Scholar and Storyteller this spring (for some reason changing Essays in Memoriam to
Essays in Memorium).

Thanks for the heads up, Morgan!

I dropped them a note, hopefully there is still time to fix that.

Have you guys noticed that the little H 2012 "Collector's Edition", which was discussed a few pages, now appears to have a jacket? It didn't originally.

Check this eBay auction out:

the hobbit hardback

The seller sent me a few extra photos of the copyright & the jacket: see below.
