The listing itself is hysterical:
Must be very rare--i can't find this edition anywhere: eBay, WorthPoint, etc. No where. The only other one that came close was selling for $999. Mine looks the same as that, and is in better condition, but he says his is illustrated by Tolkien. He could be mistaken. Anyway--mine is also hardback, but illustrated by the great Alan Lee. Both b/w and color ilustrations, and lots of 'em. Inside is in absolute MINT condition. Cover is darn near mint too--just two pin-point white specks, and a 1/4" by 1/16" smudge on the back. They'll probably wipe off, but i am not going to touch this thing. Found it in parent's attic. Pages nice and crisp. Just beautiful.
