London, Harper Collins, 2000-2001. Limited Edition. Hardback. A fine set. Limited to 1,000 unnumbered copies. Three  volumes, complete. AEG, in cloth slipcases with monogram as issued. Quarter leather binding. Using India Paper, the publishers have managed to condense the twelve books that comprise the History (edited by Christopher Tolkien) into three presentable (and readable) volumes. Matches somewhat the similar deluxe editions of The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and The Silmarillion. Books are fine, slipcases fine with just a few signs of handling, and some peeling to the corner of the slipcase for volume one. [7660, Hyraxia Books].
