Given that I am now middle-aged, and therefore enjoy gardening (despite previously having no interest), I must admit that I am tempted by this title, even if its existence seems like a bit of a stretch.

Has anyone bought a copy of "Flora of Middle-Earth: Plants of J.R.R. Tolkien's Legendarium"

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Flora-Middle- ... Legendarium/dp/0190276312

Is it well researched?

This is like a joke. First they sell the "bad" edition, now they release the "improved" one, like they are that cheap...

I've just added some pictures to help illustrate the difference between the Clays print and the LEGO. The only pictures I have of the Clays are the ones I took to give to Amazon when I requested the return, unfortunately, but you can clearly see just how thin the box and the book boards are on the Clays printing. Each of the Clays volumes also had creases to the bottoms of the boards, which didn't appear to be transit damage (just crappy assembly), and one of the books had the cover starting to split at the spine, which may have been from a knock (unclear). I honestly believe the Clays sets should just have been pulped.

The LEGO set is still fairly dull, but at least it is reasonably well put together.
