For students and for pleasure - but watch out,
This review is from: The History of Middle-earth: Pt. 3 (Hardcover)
The long road from the first drafts to the finished work. Philologic in Christopher Tolkien's part, literary and interesting in his father's drafts.
Just watch out: the first volume of the set is really hard to find and if you find it it's really expensive. So check for the first before buying the others, if you want the set to be complete! Otherwise... buy the 12 volumes, in paperback or also with the "print on demand" service by the editor. The inside of the three or twelve volumes editions is identical (not so in others "deluxe" Tolkien editions).
But if you really want to read the entire "History" - about 3000 pages - surely you're prepared to have some adventures to get it!
