That looks amazing. Do you have a pic of your current collection that you can share? :)

Also, I assume that's an early impression of the Harper Collins LOTR deluxe. If I'm not mistaken, later editions do not have that 50th Anniversary Edition text on the spine. Either way, this pic is an ode to the early days when the only deluxe books in the series were TH and LOTR

The collectors edition sounds interesting, what with the facsimiles and all. But if it's priced that high I will have to give it some serious thought before I decide to take the plunge.

Oh that looks like a beautiful publication. If this is an example of their standard, I'm even more excited about their new Tolkien book.

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

I hope that is it. As I mentioned before, I had emailed HC twice. First about the design and the pointlessness of releasing a deluxe edition that 1) does not match the existing deluxe editions and 2) is more expensive than the current box set. I suggested they should have used Tolkien's elvish heraldic motifs for the foil stamping on the book covers rather than the JRRT sigil, and make the box at least match the other two boxes they released previously. They said they passed my message on to the publishing team.

My second email was to ask them what's the deal with the Out of Stock status. But I haven't heard back from them on this one yet.

I'm very curious to see pics of the set that remy received. It may shed some light on what the error might be.
