Affordable and very nicely bound!
bought it for a class I had on medieval literature and Tolkien but was really just looking for an excuse to get it. Looked around a lot and I have to say that this is probably the best affordable version around. Love the fact that it has a hard case and the overall design. I would have liked some more maps as there are in the more expensive versions but I still wouldn't trade it for the world.
