Hmm...looks like just another reprint of the 3-hardback box currently listed as "out of stock" on tolkien.co.uk. Description is identical. Price sure increased though...



Not sure, the ISBN appears to be different, and the current boxed set is described as "The Complete History of Middle-Earth". I'd be really surprised if there was enough demand for another edition, but who knows.

Says "special", and says "Deluxe Boxed Set edition edition (5 Oct. 2017)"; so must be a special deluxe if HC are saying so...

Having said that, the normal boxset is already £180; I didn't realise it was that expensive, even if nobody buys it at full RRP.

Amazon thinks the new one is 400 pages.

Considering that the RRP of the deluxe edition of LotR is currently £100 and that each of the three volumes of HoME is comparable in "size", I think that it might be possible that this boxed set is going to be offered in the same format. That would fit more the price of £250.
Not that it would be worth it anyway, at least imho.

Stu has asked HarperCollins about this as a new edition, let us see what they reply with?
