I think it is essentially a re-issue, but the Hammond & Scull companion volume has been updated (perhaps Findegil can confirm that?)


The picture of the boxed set on HarperCollins' site is of the one issued in 2005, so one shouldn't judge by that. The new (further corrected and augmented) hardback edition of our Reader's Companion will have a slightly different dust-jacket. As for The Lord of the Rings, our understanding is that the new three-volume edition will be a reprint of the existing text, not reset, and without further corrections (though this last remains to be seen). The new one-volume edition, however, will be reset and will include at least some of the corrections we've listed in our online addenda and corrigenda; this will have new pagination, with the index revised to suit. We have not had direct involvement with the reset edition except to comment on a further correction (which was approved by Christopher Tolkien), and to revise our 'Note on the Anniversary Edition'; and we've not been informed of any correction or emendation beyond this, which is not to say that there has been none, and as Urulöké remarks, resetting often produces new errors. We'll know better when we get copies.

Thanks for the information, guys.

Speedy Hen seem to have an image of the single volume edition with the plastic cover, by the way.

Thanks Turambar!

There is a slightly larger image available on the official Tolkien store now as well:

The book looks really nice (the bright blue goes well with the illustrated boards). The slipcase, however, just looks like cheap plastic packaging - which is exactly what it is. Pity they couldn't have done a nice durable thick cardboard slipcase, rather than taking the el-cheapo option.
