To which other two boxes do you refer exactly?



HC had released two box sets back in the day.

1. http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/tolkien-book-store/CLP0475.htm
2. http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/tolkien-book-store/CLP0006.htm


A boxed set of slipcased titles. Interesting. And limited to just 100 copies? Is that true?

In any case, having the individual titles in their first impressions, I doubt I would have ordered this. Boxed sets of existing titles usually contain later printings of the titles and not first ones.

I remain unable to see the point of this set. Just whip the dustjackets off your existing set, and et. voila!

The existing set even has ribbon markers, which I had forgotten.

I'd be interested in whether the slipcase on the new set is less flimsy than the old set (although it is hard to see any normal-production slipcase being really up to the weight of these three volumes).

Also, can anyone confirm the impression/printing number on their copy? Assuming the set was reprinted because of a quality issue, are the new copies a second impression?

Our copy was like that too, but the box is not damaged. We were annoyed that the sheet was creased, as we've always laid these in, but there's an identical sheet already in the box.

Have you noticed any obvious issues with the box-set, the only printing error that has been mentioned so far is a crease on the blurb sheet?

I notice that amazon.co.uk are stating that it is in stock now.
