And, the initial stock photo (not really a fan of the 'landscape' style cover trend - George R.R. Martin's books in the UK also got that treatment - though I like the cover of The Hobbit the most out of these)

Amazon UK has posted the following images for the set that this thread initially deals with - too bad they don't show the Nazgul frontispiece from The Fellowship of the Ring, as I'm curious if it'll be presented in the same fashion as it was for The Lord of the Rings (entire novel as one book) 60th anniversary illustrated edition, or if it'll like how it always been prior to that release.

Jealous! That's well below any prices I'm seeing available in the U.S. Not too surprising considering the overseas shipping cost of heavy items, but still.

I guess I pre ordered mine at the right time last year. Only £45 which is a great save.

Well so much for not ordering this one but I can't resist those images. I think unless Jemima Catlin is given the opportunity to illustrate Rings I will make this my last editions of the Hobbit/Rings unless something unpublished is added, or my dream of a manuscript edition is compiled.

This is the last time :)
