Here’s the LOTR box set: ... collsguid-21&linkCode=osi

And here’s the set with TH, Roverandom, and Tales From the Perilous Realm: ... R-R-Tolkien/9780007156993

And here’s the one with Sil, CoH, and Unfinished Tales:

These are nice cutesy sets, mostly matching, save for the spines which sometimes are mismatched (but that can hardly be helped given how thin some of them are). ?

All the images were mockups, so I took some pictures of the real sets.

Although they are so mismatched, I somehow still like them. Thanks for the pics. ?

Edit: The other differences between your (earlier) editions and boscawinks’s (later) editions are also much more noticeable.

Also of note is the fact that earlier impressions of most or all of these had silver lettering on their fronts, and later copies had white.
