Books XII - The Lord of the Rings

As I said passingly some entries earlier, I finally got my new illustrated edition of the "Lord of the Rings" after my old, beloved and revered copy, given to me as a present when I was 14 or 15 years old by my father, ended up, for a misunderstanding that it's too late to solve now, in the shelves of my german ex-girlfriend Christina.

If I do not put it under my pillow at night is just because is a massive tome and would be quite uncomfortable for my poor neck, but otherwise it's a wonderful book and in the sparse moments i could dedicate to it over the last days I have tried to check if I can notice the difference between the "historical" translation and the revised one of this edition.
