US Deluxe Edition of The Children of Húrin by J.R.R. Tolkien
Released in April 2007 by Houghton Mifflin Co., Boston, this First Edition/First Printing of the Special Deluxe Edition of The Children of Húrin was available for a limited time. Encased in a hardcover format and housed in a matching blue slipcase, this edition is in fine condition, with a minor flaw being a bump to the right bottom of the slipcase.
Quarter-bound in blue cloth with gray boards and a silk ribbon matching the blue slipcase.
Brings forth the first standalone tale of Middle-earth since 1977, and the first complete version of one of J.R.R. Tolkien's 'Great Tales'.
The narrative is meticulously assembled by Christopher Tolkien, drawing from J.R.R. Tolkien's original manuscripts across numerous sources over decades without any editorial invention.
Accompanied by a brand new red and black Map of Beleriand specially drawn by Christopher Tolkien as a fold-out sheet.
Enriched with eight color paintings and twenty-five pencil sketches, specially commissioned from the award-winning artist, Alan Lee.
Features an exclusive color frontispiece painting by Alan Lee.
Provides a specially written introduction and appendix on the history and writing of the tale by Christopher Tolkien.

The design complements the style of the 50th Anniversary The Lord of the Rings, the 2004 Deluxe The Hobbit, and the Deluxe Silmarillion released in April 2007. It's also complemented by the matching deluxe editions of Tales of the Perilous Realm (October 2008), The Legend of Sigurd And Gudrun (2009), The Fall of Arthur (2013) and Unfinished Tales (2013).
This edition is a tribute to Tolkien’s expansive imagination and narrative brilliance, offering an enriched experience of his legendary Middle-earth. The collaboration between J.R.R. Tolkien's original storytelling and Christopher Tolkien's editorial prowess, further enhanced by Alan Lee's artistic interpretations, makes this US 1st printing of the Deluxe Edition a cherished collectible.
