The Hobbit & LotR: Which versions are the best? Can't Post

Hello everyone!

I apologize if this post is in the wrong place; please feel free to move it if so. I'm a first-time poster here on the TORn boards. Wink

I've just recently gotten back into Tolkien (I've always been a huge fan of the films, and have read The Hobbit and LotR twice. Not much, but better than some!) and am looking into purchasing my first copies of all of Tolkien's Middle-Earth works. My question to you fellow Ringers is this: if you could only have one published version of both The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, which would it be?

I'm considering the following:

http://www.amazon.com/Hobbit-J-R-R-Tolkien/dp/0618968636/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1343681229&sr=1-1&keywords=the+hobbit
http://www.amazon.com/Lord-Rings-50th-Anniversary-Edition/dp/0618517650/ref=pd_ybh_5

Any opinions would be much appreciated!
