With regard to Oronzo Cilli’s new edition of Tolkien’s Library, has anyone bought it yet? What’s it like now with corrections and additions?

I have the 2nd edition it is much changed from the 1st.

Pictured are the differences in contents pages from 1st to 2nd. Also contains an afterword by Dr. Flieger.

Thanks, Mr Underhill. I had preordered it in hardback ages before due, but then cancelled it at the last minute. But then ummed and ahed over whether I should get it or not.

The Art of The Hobbit and The Art of The Lord of the Rings listed for next year are new printings, once present stock is exhausted, each with minor corrections to the text. Also, in order to keep production costs and therefore prices in check, The Art of The Hobbit will no longer have foldouts, and each title will no longer come in a slipcase, but instead will have a dust-jacket. (The HarperCollins editions to date have had slipcases but not jackets, while the Houghton Mifflin editions have had jackets but not slipcases.)
Does the HMC ed. have the foldouts? Thanks!

HarperCollins, have informed me that this edition matches the recent hardbacks in size and style such as The Fall of Númenor.

Glad we are getting another hardback to match this style. Not super psyched it's FCL though, as there have been several new releases of this recently.

That trade hardcover size seems a bit small for all the detail in the images of the letters. Considering the occasional faults in transcription, it's helpful to be able to read the original letters themselves.

Tolkien: Lighting Up The Darkness, 9781684971879

Tolkien Lighting up the Darkness.jpg

This graphic novel explores the youth of the author of The Lord of the Rings, and his traumatic experience of the battlefields of the First World War, which will forge the imagination of his literary work.

Seems to be translated from Tolkien - Eclairer les ténèbres (9782302078888), though the page count increases from 80 to 112.
