This Green leather bound and boxed version is gorgeous and worth much more than the $11 I paid for the delivered book. The book is a good size, with good size type. The pages are high quality, smooth paper that reads well and feels good in the hand. The book includes several green and black woodcut style pictures and maps by Tolkien himself and several color plates as well. Of course the story is a classic. I understand an 80th anniversary boxed version of The Hobbit and LOTR is due out next month (Oct 2017). Not sure what that version will be like, but I believe this is the best existing (not including collectibles such as first printing, etc.) version of The Hobbit at this time.
