I'd never seen these books sold as a set before today. I'm a sucker for any kind of slipcase though.

I like that box-set, Unwin paperbacks did some great box-sets.

I've only recently started buying paperbacks, but if there are more cool sets like this I'm all in!

I rarely post in this thread as I have very little to show, and this is very little (and insignificant) but in case others saw this little book and wondered, here are some images from it.

The Little Book of J.R.R. Tolkien

Orange Hippo! (2023-04-18)


$9.01 Blackwell's (hardback) - Availability: Usually dispatched within 10 days
$6.11 Biblio (Hardcover) - Availability: Click to check
$8.95 Amazon.com (Hardcover) - Availability: Now
£5.95 Amazon.co.uk (Hardcover) - Availability: Now

$7.00 eBay US - Availability: Click to check


The Little Book of Tolkien is a very small book filled with quotes from Tolkien's books (both Middle-earth and academic), extracts from letters, interviews, etc. There is nothing that this group does not know, of that I am certain. It is inexpensive and actually well put together and overall a sweet little book, but of no use to any of us.

That's such a nice idea. Thanks onthetrail , I too just ordered a copy. I love quote books. This will be lovely to pick up in between writing code functions.

Not yet, but I'm quite curious! Have you ever read it?
