Fascinating stuff Garm. I think the 2002 limited editions would pretty much constitute one of my top three Tolkien editions, but those prices!!!

On the subject of the Folio Editions, you may be interested in knowing that there was a Danish translation boxed set of Lord of the Rings also published in 1977 coinciding with the original Folio one which also used Fraser's drawings of Queen Margarethe's originals.

I attach some photos.

Thanks very much for that, Gawain. I'd heard of this set, but I don't think I've seen a picture before.
I don't go in much for translations, myself. (that would take up a lot more room!)

My top three wish-list (by which I guess I mean I don't have the funds for them) would be:

1) 1963 deluxe box-set with Pauline baynes art.
2) 1992 lotr green box-set signed by Alan Lee and limited to 250 copies
3) The deluxe folio editions

Yours?
