The Tolkien Treasury: Roverandom, Farmer Giles of Ham, The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, Smith of Wootton Major Reviews
Da ich noch nicht zum Lesen gekommen bin und ich davon ausgehe, dass Interessierte wissen, was sie inhaltlich erwartet, nur kurz zum Äußeren der Box. Die Maße entsprechen denen der drei deutschen Neuerscheinungen des Klett Verlags (Schmied von Großholzingen, Abenteuer des Tom Bombadil und Bauer Giles von Ham), die Bücher haben einen Schutzumschlag mit schönem Cover, auf dem Schuber sind die gleichen Motive. Insgesamt wirkt alles sehr schön und robust verarbeitet.Absolute Empfehlung meinerseits, vor allem da die Box günstiger als die drei deutschen Bände ist und zusätzlich noch die tolle Roverandom-Geschichte enthalten ist.
Wunderschöne,liebevoll gestaltete Ausgabe! Mehr kann ich nicht sagen, da nicht selber gelesen, sondern an Buchliebhaberin verschenkt und großen Jubel ausgelöst!
Outstanding! The stories are classic and the books are just beautiful and well bound to boot. The text size is fine for reading, unlike the tiny font size of "The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings: Deluxe Pocket Boxed Set". (nice books, but the font was so small I couldn't imagine actually reading them. The Tolkien Treasury, on the other hand is totally readable and I like that they're not just the stories (and poems), but they include lots of commentary, notes and appendices. They just feel good in my hands, look good to the eye, and read well. I've been getting interested in binding lately, too and I've seen reviews that call the binding "OK", but to this novice they are solid! I broke them all in properly just to be sure not to "break the spine" and no problems. They open well, not too tight, and are Smyth sewn (of course), so they should last. Just very nice.
Great set of lesser known Tolkien works. They're also beautiful, and well-made books (though the books are not very big). My experience with the seller was smooth, and the item arrived safely packaged, and in "like new" condition, as expected. I've read excerpts of the books themselves (so far) and the stories are really good--after all, it's Tolkien. If you're a fan or collector, this box set is a beautiful addition to your library.
Fantastic set of little books to add to your Tolkien library. Well presented, nice size, good notes, and lovely illustrations.
Beautiful mini-book set. Bought it for the Bombadil story, can't wait to get to the rest. Excellent gift set.
From now on I always check the description. Beautiful artwork but I can’t really appreciate it at half the size.
