I have canceled my order if anyone on the site does decide to buy, could you post some pictures of the box, as I agree with Stu that it does not look good from these pictures and confirm what is on the CD?

Asked HarperCollins about this,

The photo is of dummy materials made for early sell-in to stores and does not reflect the quality of any of the final materials or the 3D cover on the box. The CD sleeve is from the old 2001 Hobbit Gift Pack – the new one is different, and does include more than the one extract.

I have re-ordered

Hopefully will have in the next few days, more to share about what is in this box set and the included CD, and it will hopefully include "previously unpublished content!", fingers crossed.

Nice work Trotter. Let’s hope it’s a great set after all

I like the idea that they are including the 'held up to the light moon runes' as Tolkien had wanted to originally include that (unless I'm mistaken) with the first impression.

That has been included before, with the Deluxe Hobbit as an example, http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details2.php?id=219

Phew, glad that was indeed just a mockup (it looked too rough to be real). Hopefully the real thing does look a lot better. My Amazon order is only £22.50 (with that discount a while back), so at least it is inexpensive.

So I picked up the new paperback edition of Beren and Luthien in Waterstones today, but all they had were 4th impressions. Not sure where the first three went.

Interestingly, for this release HC have reverted to the template last used for Sigurd and Gudrun - with the miniature version of the cover on the spine.


I received this today from BookDepository; 1st impression... so I guess that's where the 1sts went.

I received mine a couple of days ago (pre order from Amazon).

It was marked as a 4th impression.
