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.

Edited the previous post to try and get the correct orientation of the photos.

I don't think I would be very happy with that box-set, are you sure the slipcase is not damaged, on the side with the blurb? Could be to do with the shrink-wrap I suppose.

Bodleian Library Publishing (BLP) will release the largest collection of material by J R R Tolkien in a single volume as a companion to an upcoming exhibition.

Tolkien: Maker of Middle Earth launches on 1st June 2018, to coincide with an exhibition of the same name at the Oxford University library.

The exhibition will be the largest exhibition of Tolkien materials, manuscripts, and paintings and maps. It will source pieces from the Bodleian’s archive, Marquette University in Milwaukee (Wisconsin) and private collections.

BLP will publish an illustrated hardback and a limited-run collector’s edition, signed by the book’s contributors, with facsimiles of Tolkien’s paintings, manuscripts and maps. A small-format paperback, Tolkien: Treasures, will be released on the same date. Coeditions will be sold through the Edwards Fuglewicz Literary Agency.

BLP head of publishing Samuel Fanous said: “Interest has been strong and we expect to see good coedition sales.”

While looking for something in our archives, cataloguing archivist Aline stumbled upon an 'unexpected' item...an autograph letter from J.R.R. Tolkien to Professor Campbell, thanking him for the award of an Honorary Degree!

My order for this item was cancelled by Speedyhen,

https://www.speedyhen.com/Product/Wayn ... Guide--Boxed-Set/20945227

Dear Trotter
I'm very sorry but your pre-order has now expired. We are only able to store payment details for 90 days maximum.

We have now updated our website so that the option is not available to pre-order prior to the 90 days. If you would still like the item then please order it again via our website once the function becomes available. If the item is more expensive please provide me with your new order number so that I can refund the difference.

I'm very sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Kind Regards,
Luke Emmerson
Customer Service


No idea what is going on with them, but felt I should make members aware of this, very strange, and looks like they have not refunded me, once they cancelled the order, not good.
