As much as I like the Professor, he was not a Saint.

Do the Tolkien Estate know about this?

Today I just got my HoMH and there is something I don't understand and pisses me off. Why is this deluxe slipcase edition shorter than the rest? If you place the box of HoMH next to the rest of the collection, I mean, the rest of the slipcase deluxe editions, which have the same dimensions, it is noticeably smaller. They do not have the same height. I find it stupid, or maybe I'm the stupid here and I don't understand something, but it's just ugly.


I would like to see pictures as well, this is an expensive item and I want people on the site to be able to see pictures of it, before deciding if they want to add it to their collections.

As an aside, I am not buying this edition at the moment, may pick it up if I find a remaindered copy.

The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings deluxe, were bought in a quaint place called a Book Shop, both on the day of release, so are both 1st printings, before Amazon put paid to all that nonsense, bookshops.

This picture is from January 2007, The Silmarillion deluxe came out later in 2007, so you are right these were the only two deluxe editions, that you could buy at the time.

You can see pictures of my current library on the tolkienlibrary.com website, though this is a few years old.

Had not known that the 50th Anniversary Edition was removed from the spine of The Lord of the Rings deluxe, does anyone know in which impression this happened, if it did?

Tolkien.co.uk still shows images with the 50th Anniversary Edition on the spine.

Happy days, my Tolkien collection used to fit in one bookcase in 2007

I am surprised how many copies of The Silmarillion I had then compared to other titles.

I have also been looking at the Bodleian site, to get an idea on pricing of the new book, and looking at prices for Marks of Genius, an earlier exhibition that included Tolkien, these are possible prices for the new book. The Bookseller confirms the price for the hardback at £40.

Small format paperback (Tolkien: Treasures) - £15
Paperback - £25
Hardback - £40
Collector's Edition - £200

This is the £200 Marks of Genius edition, https://www.bodleianshop.co.uk/exhibit ... of-genius-collectors.html
