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

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.


The 4 volume slipcase was limited to 500 copies,
http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=87680

This slipcased collection comprises:

The Hobbit - 1st Impression
The Silmarillion - 1st Impression
The Children of Húrin - 1st Impression
The Lord of the Rings - 2nd Impression (Some sets may contain 3rd Impression copies)


The 5 volume slipcase was limited to 100 copies,
https://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/n ... t_id=11076#forumpost11076

This slipcased collection comprises:

The Hobbit - 1st Impression as stated
The Silmarillion - 2nd Impression
The Children of Húrin - 1st Impression
Tales from the Perilous Realm - 1st Impression
The Lord of the Rings - 7th 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.

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.
