I don't know for sure whether mine is one of the 250 copies, but I'm inclined to think it is. I bought it from Thornton's during the Centenary Conference at Keble in August 1992. 'Copy 27' is hand-written on the back in black ink. On the front cover is printed

'The making of The Lord of the Rings by Rayner Unwin. Oxford - Willem A. Meeuws 1992'. There is a price of £4-50, hand-written in pencil, in the top right corner.

At the end of the text is printed 'Rayner Unwin - January 1988/May 1992'.
