This edition compiles the 4 high valuable Deluxe Edtions of "The Hobbit", "The Lord of the Rings" (both 2004) and "The Silmarillion" and "The Children of Hurin" (2007). But its not just the great look, which not only fits perfectly to the Special Extended DVD Editions of a certain Film-Trilogy, but due to it's plain design it has a certain style - like an old book, that just slipped from Middle-earth to your Bookstore. But also the Text of most of the Editions, has been revised by Chris Tolkien himself to mirror the pefect version of his fathers wishes.
To those, who do not owe the Edtions yet, I can warmly recommend this books. To those, who are not interested in the Silmarillion and The CoH shoul better buy the corresponding US 50th Anniversary Edition of TLotR and those who are not interested in collecting and allready have other Editions of these books, well, those have to consider for themselves wheather to buy this collection or not.
