The J. R. R. Tolkien Collection - limited edition deluxe hardback box set.

Professor Tolkien's Middle-earth classics with revised and corrected text, the ultimate collector's set. Comprising of four (in some cases anniversary) deluxe hardcover slipcase editions - all housed in a boxed-set, exclusive to this release.This is a lovely set, limited to only 500 pieces worldwide and would be of particular interest to those already owning or considering the matching deluxe editions of 'The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun' and 'The Fall of Arthur' - which sees a release later this month.

The Hobbit - This deluxe slipcase edition of The Hobbit, printed and bound using superior materials including a silk ribbon marker, features the definitive text, plus Tolkien’s paintings and drawings in full colour, and a special fold-out version of Thror’s Map. (2004).

The Lord of the Rings - This 50th anniversary deluxe slipcase volume contains the definitive version of the text, featuring for the very first time full-colour facsimiles of pages from the Book of Mazarbul, illustrations by Tolkien that he intended for inclusion in the 'Bridge of Khazad-dum' chapter. Also appearing are previously unpublished family trees, two full-size fold-out maps and silk ribbon marker. (2004).

The Silmarillion - To celebrate the 30th anniversary of first publication, a new deluxe edition of The Silmarillion, featuring the revised, reset text, a colour frontispiece illustration, bound in special materials and presented in a matching slipcase. (2007).

The Children of Hurin - This deluxe collector’s edition features the first edition text and eight full-colour plates, with an exclusive colour frontispiece illustration. The book is quarter-bound with a special gold motif stamped on the front board and is presented in a matching slipcase. (2007).

This is not part of the box set but I will also include...

Tales from the Perilous Realm (limited to 500, signed by the illustrator Alan Lee) - This deluxe collector’s edition includes the first edition text and features an exclusive colour frontispiece illustration on a fold-out sheet. The book is quarter-bound, with a specially commissioned motif stamped in three foils on the front board, and is presented in a matching slipcase. (2008).

Condition: Near Mint - all books carefully removed from their original shrink-wrap, with The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings having been read once. Sublime conditions, purchased direct from HarperCollins some years ago and very well looked after. No bumped corners or any damage to note, slipcases and outer slip-sleeve are in superb condition - as initially handled and shipped.

Tales from the Perilous Realm is the most recent purchase, again direct from HarperCollins and read once. Likewise conditions as the above and carefully looked after. Note this is the signed edition which was limited to 500 copies worldwide - the very fine hand of Alan Lee to the title page (as pictured).

Shipping: Via the fully tracked Parcelforce 24 service within the UK.

International shipping costs: This is a very heavy set (weighing in at 8kg) where an international sale could be possible, I would only ship via the fully tracked Parcelforce Global Priority option. Please feel free to confirm a shipping cost to your location using the Parcelforce 'price finder' service via their website. 

Edit: Revised and dropped prices for international shipping using Parcelforce 'price finder' - package details: weight 8kg, height 33cm, width 34cm and length 32cm.

Edit II: Bid & BIN price dropped, mostly to offset international shipping costs a little. Bidders are more than welcome to use the 'quote a price' option above and request an invoice after sale (which I shall of course honour) so keep in mind your shipping location when bidding. Being an English gentleman, any postal overcharge on my part will be recompensed via Paypal 'gift' once your items are safely away :-)

Thanks for your interest and good luck bidding.
