[I have merged Stu's recent 1992 HarperCollins Illustrated LOTR Boxed Set thread (see running title of post #2 in this thread)
with Trotter's older (June 2014) thread
Alan Lee Illustrated Lord of the Rings boxset (which nobody had responded to) --BH]

Splendid. Out of interest, what criteria did you apply to determine this as being a different state of the standard HC set, rather than just a different boxed set all together (as per the distinct Ted Smart/Book People entries for LOTR paperback boxed sets in tolkiebbooks.net)?

Well the primary criterium this time was time and effort involved

A separate ISBN for the set would usually generate a new entry - as was the case for the Book People--Geoff Taylor cover art set.

I have merged entries in the past, but there are a few inconsistencies waiting for me to sort out - like the green slipcase Ted Smart H+LR set.

I went way overboard on variations in the first edition LR boxed sets, but that was just me getting a bit carried away.

I'm all for consolidation, as if there were two entries on tolkienbooks.net, I'd then feel the need to try and seek out the other one (and I'm not even a "completeist"). You see the power you wield?
