Gift Idea [Not for Me] : "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" set

With renewed interest in Tolkien due to the Hobbit films, here is a gift option for shoppers come Thanksgiving / Christmas [I will do a Christmas idea post in November or December sometime. This ideas are not for myself.]


Presented in sumptuous new cover designs you can discover the complete story of Bilbo Baggins and the Hobbits' epic encounters with Gandalf, Gollum, dragons and monsters, in the quest to destroy the One Ring. When they were first published, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings became instant classics.
Treasured by readers young and old, these works of sweeping fantasy, steeped in unrivalled magic and otherworldliness have sold more than 150 million copies around the world.

This new boxed set contains both titles and features brand new cover designs.

It offers readers a new opportunity to discover Tolkien's remarkable world of Middle-earth and to follow the complete story of Bilbo Baggins and the Hobbits' part in the epic quest for the Ring – beginning with Bilbo's fateful visit from Gandalf and culminating in the dramatic climax between Frodo and Gollum atop Mount Doom. - See more at: http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/1094-the-hobbit-lord-of-the-rings-collector-set.php#sthash.MDtkNs2d.dpuf

The titles are also available separately. I myself quite like these covers (these are hardbacks without dustjackets, by the way). Should I ever need to re-buy the Tolkien books in hardback, I'd go for these. Now, if only The Silmarillion (and Unfinished Tales...) gets this format..... and maybe Children of Hurin, too....
