Thanks Remy. And I agree with you on price. So many times I have held back on something which seemed overpriced only to see the price go up, never down.

Yes, it does look like it just came out from the publisher. Congrats! It's in better shape than my set.

Very nicely done Quicksilver
I have the same set and I love it. I bought it when it first appeared and have not regretted it one bit. Enjoy this great set.

That looks a great set. No sign of the red on the spines fading? You’ve not shown that angle.

Thanks Orfewspearl and Huan.

There is no fading of the red spines and they are still bright and vibrant. I saw some posts on this forum where the red spines had faded to white and were being sold as a special "white edition". I don't believe there is any record of a "white edition" being published. As the red spines are prone to fading I plan to store them on my shelf facing inwards. The back of the slipcase is any event very classy.

Here are some photos showing the spines.

There is just a slight bow to the box where the CD was stored, which you can see in the photo below. because of this I'm going to store the CD seperately.

Newest addition to the collection under The Hill. A HoughtonMifflin 50th anniversary promotion Lord of the Rings post card from 2004. Was originally intended to go along with this volume.

I’ll have to slip it into mine now.

Thanks Emilien I showed it to Urulókë and he reminded me that he has a shoebox full of postcards like these, but that he didn't have this exact one. Anyone here have one of these by chance?
