Included as well is the 2007 Harper Collins Deluxe Slipcased Edition of the Children of Hurin, which includes a ninth color plate by Alan Lee not featured inside the standard hardback.
Also features the Helm of Hurin, as designed by Alan Lee, gilt stamped to the exterior.
The final book included is The 2007 Harper Collins 30th Anniversary Deluxe Slipcased Edition of The Silmarillion.
