The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Published by Harper Collins in 2000, this set takes the 1997 Alan Lee illustrated edition of the Hobbit and the 1991 Alan Lee illustrated edition of The Lord of the Rings, and releases them together in their own publishers slipcase.

The slipcase features one scene from each book, and is accented by a gold border on the top and bottom edge that features the runic script. The slipcase has a small neatly repaired split to the upper rear seam, barely visible.

As the Hobbit is a wider book, the slipcase has an offset spacer to allow both books to fit the box evenly. 
The Hobbit is the 1997 edition, 10th impression, released to commemorate the Sixtieth Anniversary of the original publication.
The dustwrapper was modified to match The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion illustrated editions.
This one also features a price on the inner flap which is an indication that you own a later, modified edition. 

A full 22 color illustrations, and 38 pencil drawings, beautifully illustrated edition by Alan Lee.
The Lord of the Rings is the 1991 edition, 23th impression, produced to commemorate the centenary of Tolkien's birth.
